Eurovision Top 10–Madonna Lucia

MAD AS A BRUSH! Love Madonna Lucia who never fails to make me laugh! I HAD to put her comments into the post coz I pissed meself when I read them!

Madonna Lucia Eurovision

At ten we have the ultimate sickener performance Greece – Kalomira ‘Secret combination’ 2008. Its like being forcefed rainbows sugar and unicorns by a Disney princess.

Followed at nine by the ULTIMATE DRAG PERFORMANCE in the universe by Belarus – Angelica Agurbash ‘Love me tonight’ 2005, with no less than three costume changes. So gay it didn’t qualify.

At eight is the actual best DRAG PERFORMANCE EVER by Ukraine – Ani Lorak ‘Shady lady’ 2008 like Wonderwoman in heat surrounded by hot guys.

At seven is a song that isn’t amazing but the performance and delivery was spot on and summed up everything about France- Patricia Kaas ‘S’ll fallait le faire’ 2009. She was AMAZING.

At sixth place is Ireland – Jedward ‘Lipstick’ 2011, I saw this live and it was just unbelievable. Jedicated!

Getting more serious in fifth place is Estonia -Urban Symphony’ Ranjadad’ 2009. This was a total outsider and did very well, I just thought it was really cool and effortless.

In fourth place is Bulgaria – Elitsa & Stoyan ‘Water’ 2007. I loved how mental this was.

My top 3 starting with the best rock song in ages by Georgia –Eldrine ‘One more day’ 2011. This was awesome.

My number 2 favourite ever is Cyprus – Constantinos Christoforou ‘Ela Ela’ 2005, just soooo quality with a capital G.A.Y.

My number ONE all time fav is Bosnia-Herzegovina – Deen ‘ In the Disco’ 2004 because its gayer than a bag of Dicks and I always laugh when I see it.

10. Secret Combination – Kalamoira (Greece 2008)

9. Love Me Tonight - Angelica Agurbash (Belarus 2005)

8. Shady Lady - Ani Lorak (Ukraine 2008)

7. S’ll fallait le faire - Patrica Kass (France 2009)

6. Lipstick – Jedward (Ireland 2011)

5. Randajad - Urban Symphony (Estonia 2009)

4. Water - Elitsa & Stoyan (Bulgaria 2007)

The Sims diamond jubilee

As some of ya know, the Queen of England has her diamond jubilee this weekend and while I personally have no interest given the whole occupation of part of our island thing and the fightin for independence etc etc, I know a lot of readers will be. The Sims, the world’s biggest sellin video game, has been made into a spoof of it. I know Diva will like this. Argentina maybe not so much!

One Direction cartoon

This is nice but also a little strange! It’s a One Direction fan made cartoon which has them as Power Ranger like superheroes! This chap clearly has a LOT of time on his hands! The Adventurous Adventures of One Direction features cartoon versions of Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik and Liam Payne with very bad accents!

S Club Reunion

Well there was lots of talk yesterday about S Club makin a return but sadly it turned out to be a bit of a joke with Jo, Paul and Bradley singin over themselves and the backin dancers lookin like they’d been pulled out of the audience five minutes earlier! SCARLET for them. It was filmed for TV in Australia and Dannii Minogue was the guest host.

I’ve seen Jo and Bradley live in Cork and they were actually very good. I don’t see the reunion happenin now to be honest but it’s worth a look for the laugh!

Les Miserables trailer

This looks really good and ya know me for a musical. It has Anne Hathway, Amanda Seyfried, Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe so could be really good. From what Diva tells me, the musical has some great songs and is well worth a watch so I’ll be checkin it out when it comes out.

Glee finale

I know a lot of people don’t watch Glee anymore but I still love it just as I did back in the start, mainly coz I wish life was like that and people would just burst into song randomly everywhere they go! It’d be great fun. People would think I was Tulisa walkin through Waterford.

I watched the season finale the other day and cried about 5 times. I’m dyin to see what happens now next year what with the older ones all graduatin. This version of Madonna’s I’ll Remember by Kurt was lovely! Lookin forward to season 4.

I come from a land down under

Down Under is one of me favourite songs of ALL TIME and for some reason I thought of this ad that uses the song today! Great version of the song. I’d love to find the actual version of it if anyone knows where I can get it!!

Monday, 28 May 2012

La La Love

I’ve decided I’m not lettin’ this tune go! La La Love was the Cypriot Eurovision entry and thought it’d do so much better than it did. 12 points from Sweden show just how good a tune it is! Will be rockin’ to this one for a while.

Tina from S Club releases single

Tina was always the one in S Club that was there more for her actin ability than her singin. They used her loads in the TV show but not so much in the band and now here she is with her own single called Fire! I dunno how I feel about it yet. I hope S Club reunite soon!

Loreen chokes on a snowflake during the jury final!

Poor Loreen! Favourite by MILES but last night at the jury final she choked on a snowflake plus Romania and Serbia messed up their lines meanin it’s now Jedward’s for the taking!! Hope they do it! Have everything crossed!

Spain told to lose Eurovision

Spain’s Eurovision entrant Pastora Soler has been told to lose the competition coz they won’t be able to hold it next year although to be fair, it’s unlikely she’ll win. Poor Pastora. I’d actually cause blue murder if it was me.

Will Smith slaps reporter

This happened at the Moscow Premiere at Men In Black 3. The reporter tried to kiss Will on the lips and got a smack for his troubles. Will’s normally one of the more sane Hollywood stars but hit your man a little smack before movin on to the next interview. LOL!

Beautiful Song

I’m on a mad Eurovision buzz at the moment and this song has taken me over the last few days. It’s absolutely mad but funny at the same time and it has a nice tune that I can’t get out of my head. Here’s Anmary and her mates! Just listen to those lyrics!

Glee’s Naya Rivera as a pole dancer

Ya might know her better as Santana from Glee but here’s Naya Rivera on TV show 'Amateur Pole Dance-off' on the television show The Wild World of Spike. This was before she got cast in Glee clearly and she even gets her diddies out at one stage! LOVELY!

Jedward’s new look

They’ve lost the quiffs for their new album and this is how I like Jedward. I’m allowed say that coz they’re 20 and it’s not pervie at all. They’ve lovely skin as well, although that could be airbrushed and they’ve lovely little bodies on them. Okay I’ll stop now.

Jedward Hot new look

TV3 axes The Apprentice

Actually distraught about this! The Apprentice is by far my favourite programme on telly and I won’t know what to do with my Monday nights in the autumn now. No more Jackie Lavin? No more gobshites not knowin what to do with something called seed money! I need a moment…

The 20 second bus journey

If ya have a good look at this picture you’ll see a plane. It’s a plane I waited 15 minutes to get off coz a bus had to come get us to bring us to the terminal. If you look at the left of the picture you’ll see where we got off the bus. Surprisingly, this happened in Krakow and not Kerry!

Ryanair plane Krakow

Malibu Pilates

I want one. Look at the bodies on these people. 8.8 inches in 10 days?? That’s better than drugs. Susan Lucci is some form of American actress and look how lovely she looks. It looks fun as well! Where do I get one?

Big Brother 2012 promo

Big Brother 2012 is goin to be startin soon on Channel 5 which I don’t actually have. I haven’t watched Big Brother in years except for the odd celebrity one and I don’t really think I’ll be followin this one. Ah sure we’ll see what happens.

World record Bollywood dance

This took place around the world the other day for some charity or other. It’s a world record attempt at the most people doin a Bollywood routine to Jai Ho which if anyone realised is actually MY number! CHEEK! Anyway, this video is from the London part.

Jedward had their first rehearsal today for the Eurovision which included a fountain! I love these guys and I really hope they win so if you’re readin this from outside Ireland, make sure you vote for them!!!

Eurovision Odds

For those lookin forward to the Eurovision in less than 2 weeks, here’s the latest on the bettin. Expect Jedward to get a lot closer to Sweden in the next 2 weeks as the marketin machine kicks in.

Ashleigh and Pudsey win Britain’s Got Talent

I’ve been dippin in and out of Britain’s Got Talent over the last few weeks but I did see Ashleigh and Pudsey’s very first audition and was very impressed. I missed the final last night but caught up with it on YouTube and am very impressed at how good they were. Delighted they won!

Alesha Dixon for X-Factor?

After impressin on Britain’s Got Talent, Alesha Dixon is bein lined up to replace Kelly Rowland on X-Factor. Both Dannii Minogue and Katy Perry have turned it down accordin to sources (I read it on the internet) I like Alesha. I hope she does it and she does a duet with Tulisa!

Gold Coast is my latest holiday guide

Gold Coast is a city in Australia famous for its surfing. Some say it’s a Surfer’s Paradise which is ironic seein as that’s the name of one the areas in the suburbs. It reminded me of Home and Away. You can read it here - http://www.joannaryde.com/travel/Goldcoast.html

LOL! This is a genuine police search and turns out the policeman found more than he bargained for!

Me in the Eurovision

In 2010 I contacted FLTV in Liechtenstein about enterin the Eurovision song contest and I got a very nice reply sayin they had no plans to enter until their licence was accepted which is fair enough. Seein as Eurovision is 2 weeks away, I thought I’d share with yiz my song for Liechtenstein!

Jedward flashmob

This is so cute! Especially the fella at the front. Jedward jetted off this mornin to the Eurovision Song Contest in Baku, Azerbaijan to represent Ireland and hopefully bring back what is rightfully ours! This flashmob was started by their friends in Dublin airport and if the support is like that elsewhere in Europe we’re in for a great few weeks!

DJ Chloe’s epic Eurovision mix

I LOVE THIS! Always been a big fan of DJ Chloe and she’ll be hostin Munster’s Premier Eurovision party on the 18th of May in Mojo, Waterford, This is a promo mix for the night! Gonna be epic!! Be there!!

Britney Spears signs for X-Factor USA

So after all the hype and talk about it, Britney has signed on for X-Factor USA in a deal worth $15 million! That’s a lot of money. Britney’s last album wasn’t that much of a smash and her tour didn’t sell out so she could do with the publicity. I didn’t watch it last year but I might just to see her have a meltdown!

Illegal traveller sulky race in Cork

This is doin the rounds in the news here in Ireland at the moment after it was uploaded to YouTube. The race was on the main Cork to Mallow road and it’s one of the busiest routes in the country. In case ya don’t know, sulky racin is a tradition with Irish travellers that they sometimes use for bettin and settlin scores when they’re not beatin the shite out of each other.

Justin Baber graduates from high school

Isn’t he so cute? Justin Bieber has graduated from high school to please his mother. He told the Telegraph -

"It was hard doing school and work every day. That was something my mum really wanted me to do, so I had to do it for her. I mean, this kind of lifestyle has given me a different perspective on life. I've been able to travel the world. At school, usually you have to do a lot of writing and reading. I'm really not into that stuff. I like to be out there."

Fair play to him!

Will Katy Perry join X-Factor?

Well accordin to Justin Bieber and People she is. Sources say that she was so good at the Dublin auditions in 2010 that Simon wants to sign her up seein as Dannii Minogue who was favourite to return won’t be able to because of schedulin conflicts with Australia’s Got Talent. Personally I like Katy and seein as they’re unlikely to call me now at this stage, she can have the job!

Rebecca Black is back again

It’s no Friday but Sing It is the new song by Rebecca Black. It’s her on a beach walking along. I hope it does really well coz I like Rebecca! She makes me smile. I think I’m goin to go put Friday on repeat!

Ostrich tries to escape!

This video of an ostrich escapin from a farm and runnin down the road was filmed in Saudi Arabia which actually looks like a bit of a shit hole even considerin all the oil money they have! Someone even tried knockin it down although it just got up and ran through the Drive Thru instead. I hope it got away in the end!

No more Friends

Or so Lisa Kudrow says. She recently told E! Online: "I don't think it will ever happen whether any of us want it to happen or not. I don't think any of us would do it unless David Crane and Marta Kauffman wrote it and I don't know how they could do it."

This is gettin’ better than Steps Reunion! I hope they make a reality TV show about it!

Tulisa performs Young on Britain’s Got Talent

Tulisa performed her new number 1 single Young on Britain’s Got Talent over the weekend and got a bit of flack over it although I can’t see why. I think she did well and the song is very good plus she was singin live which is always a good thing. What do yiz think?

Miss Ireland stripped of title

The new Miss Ireland Maire Hughes has been stripped of her title after only a few days after it was found out she’d be too old to compete in the Miss World competition which is going to be on in China later in the year.

Maire who was Miss Mayo said she was 21 in her application and turns out she’ll be 26 at her next birthday. The cut off age is 24. Poor girl, but that’s the cost of lyin in application forms!

Jedward’s song for Euro 2012

I don’t know what to make of this to be honest! I like Jedward and always have but I also liked Lipstick and this is just a re-workin of it and not a very good one (I’d know bein a parody writer!) anyway, I’m guessin we’ll be hearin lots of it in the run up to Poland-Ukraine.

Cheryl Coles new single Call My Name

Cheryl Cole has debuted the video for her song Call My Name which is not to be confused with Call Me Maybe (Hey I just met you!) She wears awful coloured pants and drives through a city and dances and stuff, all very Cheryl Cole! She says Girls Aloud will be back soon and its probably just as well!

Tulisa is FHM’s sexiest woman

Tulisa Contostavlos has been voted the sexiest woman in the latest FHM poll beatin Cheryl Cole into second place! I’m wonderin did the famous sex tape have anything to do with it although after seein it, I think she could do with a few tips! Are you a Tulisa fan?

I’ve always been a fan of Shakira even since the days before Whenever Wherever and now she’s rockin some form of half Spanish-half English vibe and a short hairdo. The song is fun and kinda reminds me of her last single Loca. She was amazin live in the O2! Check out the song below!

Are Liberty X reuniting?!

Well it seems that every band that ever broke up have had rumours about them reuniting and now that Take That and Steps have been successful at it, Liberty X seem to be the next ones to come back although they’re sayin it’s not true. Ya might remember that Liberty X were made up of the losers of the first Popstars show while the winners went on the become Hear’Say. Dyin to see how this one turns out!

Dark Knight Rises new trailer

I’m a big Batman fan but I’m not sure I’m too happy with the idea that this film is goin to be the last, especially coz the first 2 were so good and there’s LOADS more storylines and villains for him to fight and what about Robin and Batgirl? I’m lookin forward to it although probably not as much as the Avengers! I can’t help thinkin that we’re seein a new Batman here played by your man from that programme that’s in the trailer!
