The Eurovision song contest can be like wading through jelly with concrete boots on. In fact, the only reason it was EVER watched in our house was because of the brilliantly witty Terry Wogan. What distress there was in our humble abode when we learned that Tel wouldn't be hosting as usual. We had to forgo the annual trip to Iceland to buy in the duck spring rolls at a bob a dozen. And as for the mini quiches.... well forget it! Terry Wogan IS the Eurovision Song Contest. He's like a great British institution. Why should we be left so bereft We beseech you to support us in bringing him back to the contest. Otherwise life as we know it will be forever altered, we'll be cast into the outer stratosphere of Norton Hell in the month of May. BRING BACK TEL!!!!

Andrew Wellard, Australia2 years ago Comments: You're so right!. Eurovision for me was just this tacky craptacular that gave Terry Wogan a wonderful annual opportunity to weave his wit on. The Australian replacement commentators Zermiro and Pang(although showing some signs of improvement) are still painful to put up with. They change the comedic tone of the coverage to not much more than (often shouted, why?!!!)frockery commentary and it isn't this all just one big gay mardi gras with a better stage and lighting. Wogan had the ability to gently, hillariously AND brutally unmask this monster of European pretension and nepotism. A deliciously skewering wit, delivered with those warm Irish dulcent tones. Please Terry, if Richie Benaud can still be doing the cricket at 80-plus can you not make a Eurovision comeback?. Eurovision as covered by the SBS try-hard pair almost seems to take itself seriously. Julia, you are a talent, but you are massively over-exposed and your Euroschtick ala Rockwiz etc needs to take a break.
