Yeah, OK, so it’s not rock/metal (I think they realised that allowing Lordi on a few years ago was unfair to any other entrants to decent music has been re-banned) but it’s one of TV’s biggest events each year. Plus, we got a review copy of the album featuring all forty featured tracks and fancied a laugh.
So… welcome to the inaugural Moshville Times Eurovision Countdown!
This year, myself and Dave will plough through the tracks – two per day – and award them a maximum of five and a minimum of zero (“NULL PWA”). These scores are based purely on a single listen to the track and a strong sense of xenophobia. And maybe how ridiculous the artist looks or if we holidayed in their home country once and had a bad time. It’s all very scientific.
At the end of the run, we will be allowed to run back through and award each of three tracks an additional four, three and two marks before declaring our overall winner. We would heartily not recommend using our results to place bets on the actual final although, to be honest, the real thing is a crapshoot anyway.
The first post will be up shortly…
