Calling this section of the award ‘The Ugly’ is unfair, it’s not that the nominees themselves are ugly, rather that the clothes they chose to wear at Eurovision were absolutely hideous. There are two categories here, one for the male contestants and one for the females.

The Phoenix Award for Outstanding Achievement at Eurovision

We at Eurovision NI would like to extend a special award for outstanding contribution to Eurovision and give a place in the Eurovision NI Hall of Fame to BBC announcer, Eurovision host and all round legend Terry Wogan.

  1. FaceTime was not in the lyrics of Sound Of Silence. It was face time, nothing to do with Apple’s app 😦 Also it should have been in the Best song category as it won Eurovision’s Marcel Bezençon Award in the composer category


    1. Thanks for your comment however I pick the nominees and it wasn’t one of my favourite songs this year. Even if the lyrics are ‘face time’ and not ‘FaceTime’ the lyrics are still awful as that doesn’t make any sense and the nomination still stands.


  2. LOL such a hater of Dami Im right, if you are going to get a vlog or whatever, respect the fact that you wrote the lyrics wrong assuming that is for the apple thing… FaceTime lol that’s the only reason that you put her there, and second i agree with the wrong nomination because she won ” Eurovision Marcel Bezençon Award” for best song soo..and become #5 on EV..i guess this thing is just a joke, because you can not ignore those things.. 0 credibility, not even good eurofan page…be professional,search and make your work if you don’t like someone fine but respect their work.
    because this is just what do you think and not what it should be,soo you ruin the whole thing, you already showed how much you dislike her, anyway good luck in your “page”


    1. I have nothing against Dami Im. In fact she is nominated in the Best Female and Best Live Vocal categories, so I’m hardly a hater nor do I have some kind of vendetta against her.

      Secondly I write this blog in my spare time as a bit of fun. It’s supposed to be tongue in cheek and if you can’t laugh at Eurovision, then there is something wrong with you.

      Finally in regards to the FaceTime lyric. Does it matter if it is FaceTime the app or face time? No because either way the lyrics still make no sense. I get that she has been nominated for awards for best song, but in my opinion that particular line of that song is naff. If you don’t like the fact that she is nominated then feel free to vote for one of the other many songs nominated in the category.

      I appreciate your opinions and you taking the time to comment on my blog and respect that you may disagree with what inhale said, but I don’t get why you feel the need to attack my opinions.
