The Thursday column: EurovisionTelegraph.co.uk
The 51st competition, we understand, will now be going ahead without the dulcet tones of the Serbs and the Montenegrins, who found it impossible to agree on a contestant. At a “sing-off” in Belgrade, the Serbian crowd accused the Montenegrins, who are trying to win independence, of partisan voting in the contest to represent the federation at the competition in May… Guards had to protect a boy band from a mob – not a problem encountered by Sandie Shaw and Buck’s Fizz when they whipped off their shoes and their skirts while bestriding the Eurovision boards. Yugoslavia, as we used to call it, has only won the competition once, in 1989, when a band called Riva took the palm with Rock Me. But that was before a war divided the country, and now the Eurovision has become the site of a vicious dispute about national identity. But is it really possible that a tacky song contest could be the place where ancient loyalties are settled?It is often the way. Culture is regularly the zone where such disputes are ignited or reignited, and we may have to broaden both our sense of what culture is, and our sense of what the Eurovision means, in order to comprehend the way the competition has shaped up in recent years.

The joy of subtitlesBBC News
Any help with understanding is always useful. Quite frankly we have given up on programs without subtitles and gone to another channel. Mark Jones, Croydon UK

A friend and I were having dinner whilst watching the Eurovision Song Contest one year. The sub titler was fighting a losing battle all the way, but it was the most hysterical evening. And we left the sound on too for Terry’s wonderful commentary!
Unfortunately they seem to be a little more prepared for Eurovision nowadays. Jill, England

Some of the best uses of subtitling I’ve come across on DVD is in the Production Notes on some of the Dr Who DVDs which can provide an alternate commentary, ie “Watch out for the scenery wobble in this scene. “Dicky Entrails, London

My wife and I use subtitles when we feed our baby. We turn the volume down and it is a chance for us all to relax and veg out in front of the TV without disturbing our Georgie before bed. Alex Young, Byfleet, England
The best use of subtitles for me has to be on Never Mind The Buzzcocks during the Intros round – indescribably funny, you have to see it to appreciate it!Richard, London, UK

Being ‘hard of hearing’ I depend on subtitles completely – they’re marvellous.

inspired Insania and the memories of Jordan’s UK Eurovision attempt are still with us. Could this be the chance for the lovebirds, about to renew their wedding vows in Disneyland, to make sweet music with each other? We hope so. “; function click(e) { if (document.

And as for toothpaste, Fort Knox is only in the ha’penny place. I challenge anyone to access a tube without severing a finger, or needing to lie down in a darkened room until their blood pressure returns to normal. The sad news that Serbia Montenegro will not be participating in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest because a Montenegran song won their national event, causing the Serbs to leave in a huff, comes as a body-blow to music-lovers everywhere. It also gives encouragement to the cynics among us who think that it might be a good idea to abandon the songs at these contests and just have the scoring. It would scarcely affect the result, since the countries of the former USSR would all vote for each other, as usual, and the winner would depend on whether there were more Balkans than Baltics, or vice versa. Nor would it affect our relationship with the rest of Europe; they wouldn’t vote for Royaume Uni if we had the Angel Gabriel singing with the Heavenly Choir.

?I love my city very much and want to improve life in it,? Klitschko said in announcing his bid. The last surveys released two weeks before the ballot showed that the political novice could deal a surprise knockout to Kiev?s veteran mayor Olexander Omelchenko, with some five percentage points separating the two lead contenders. Also in the parliamentary race is Ruslana Lyzhichko, the winner of the 2004 Eurovision song contest, who is among the top five on the party list of President Viktor Yushchenko?s Our Ukraine bloc. ?I wanted to give Yushchenko my shoulder for support,? the 32-year-old, who actively supported the Ukrainian president during the ?orange revolution,? said recently. The judicial branch is also well-represented in the election race ? one bloc has the head of the nation?s supreme court on its party list, while another features the head of the country?s top economic court. ?It?s important for these people to remain among the elite, not to turn into ordinary pensioners,? said Volodymyr Fesenko, a political analyst in Kiev.

Kym To Tread The CobblesSky News
She’s gone and landed herself a plum TV role in soapland. Kym will soon be tottering down the most famous cobbles in the country. After a brief stint on Holby City and a failed bid to represent the UK in the Eurovision Song Contest, Kym has got herself a gig on Coronation Street. The role shouldn’t be too much of a stretch for Kym – she’ll play a singer called Michelle, who’ll drive Liz McDonald (played by Beverley Callard) nuts by flirting with her drummer boyfriend Vernon. Kym has been signed up for four episodes but could be back for more.
