    So the song that was basically 'go fuck yourself, Russia' won. Sounds about right.

    Wonder how Kiev, currently experiencing a huge economic crash and a smoldering civil war, feels about hosting next year.

    I know politics has always been a part of Eurovision, but this is too blatant for my taste, and I'm actually pretty sad that the voting ended this way.

    I want my Eurovision to be silly and fun.

    Immediately after the selection of this song, some Russian politicians, as well as authorities in Crimea, accused the Ukrainian authorities of using the song "to offend Russia" and "capitalising on the tragedy of the Tatars to impose on European viewers a false picture of alleged harassment of the Tatars in the Russian Crimea".[6][nb 2]

    Letting that song into the contest wasn't a smart move but then it's eurovision and if a singing contest causes a major diplomatic rift, then we deserve everything we get.

    It's not explicitly a "fuck, Russia" song, it's a song about something which happened to her family

    I didn't watch the finals but uh

    Did Australia enter something different than they did in the semis?

    Because they were one of the worst performances in either qualifying round

    Huh, that's weird

    The semis aren't a youtube stream, and they still work fine

    Edit: Just watch the semis anyways - they're typically better than watching the finals, if you ask me

    I think they might be using the Youtube feature which automatically archives a stream

    The other videos are all hosted elsewhere and are not blocked in the US

    I think this is most likely something their IT guys have done, maybe they will update the archive so it is hosted in the same place as the semi-final broadcasts

    and with a little Australian know-how, solved
