They Think it's Moldova......... It is Now!!!!!!!
Well folks that is Eurovision done for another year. As Pasha and his Moldovian dancers minced off the stage last night, we had seen the last performnace. No more rehearsals, no more press conferences - just an interval act, some (mostly predictable) voting and a great winner and reprise for Loreen and Euphoria!!!! I am delighted to be heading to Sweden. It will be my 6th contest in a 6th different country and i am already excited. There were people at the airport booking up hotels in Sweden already.

I do hope our esteemed editor and chief Keith Mills will change his mind about not coming, nearer the time. I will be there with bells on and I reckon the thought of leaving his website in the hands of Andrew Main and myself might override the one of disappointment in going to Sweden next year.

Again I apologise to the people of this blog for my terrible prediction success but as I have said before I am merely a fan not an expert. Of the 14 countries I predicted could share the top 10 spots I got 8 of them correct which looks pretty decent until you see that the 6 i never got were nowhere near - UK Iceland Ireland Cyprus Ukraine and Romania. Never go to the bookies on my say so.

I am now checked in at the Travel Lodge at Heathrow with the final leg of the journey home tomorrow - bliss. I will leave you with a little annecdote of my flight from Baku to Istanbul!!!
You know you are living the high life when you have to scoot past Zeljko Joksimovic on the plane to get to the toilet in a hurry only to find Kaliopi waiting to get in when you are finished."Elaine Dove - seat warmer for the stars at 35000ft!!!!"

Thankyou all and see you in Sweden 2013 xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I would just like to point out that I was out there to blog to Eurovision fans about what was happening regarding rehearsals etc. I am not paid in any shape or form but do it for the love of the contest and the interest of the readers. I am very aware of the issues in Azerbaijan but I was not there to report on that and incidently did not witness any of the atrocities you mention. By all means you are entitlied to an opinion but don't tar me with some brush that i don't deserve and get your facts right before you start mouthing off about who pays me and what i chose not to mention. I was merely a fan commenting on the show and I believe I did what the people of this blog wanted me to do. The BBC were paid to go and report for their Panorama programme and also did a good job. Was not my remit tho x
