Yes, I know it was at the weekend but I didn’t have time to write a post then, but did you watch?

I did and I loved it!

I even got my kids to watch with me, it was the first time either of them had ever seen it, and they were pleasantly surprised that they enjoyed it too – if only to take the mickey out of how funny some of the acts were and try to grasp the political voting – which they were disgusted about which just made me laugh all the more…

So – did you guess the winner?

I thought it would be fun to share my facebook statuses that were written as I watched so you can see what I thought (along with the comments – anonomised for my friends’ benefit, but included as they make things even funnier! lol)

Did I guess the winner? Read on to find out! 😉 hehe

Me – Must be the wine, Cascada songs are usually much better than this! lol

we only got ourselves to blame, it’s such a shame, How many times can we win and lose, how many times can we break the rules
