Muse should participate in Eurovision Song Contest.



What do you think? I really like Eurovision Song Contest. I am also very aware that many people find the music there absolutely atrocious. Being an open Eurovision fan, I've heard tons of critisism.

But really. It would have been so amazing if Muse were to participate. For the United Kingdom! Since they are very well known in Europe, they would score lots of extra attention beforehand.

Then, they would write a killer-3-minute long tune, and would have rocked Europe with it, winning the contest, and become known to every child, father and grandfather who watches Eurovision but have no clue about Muse.

Muse also loves a good scene show, and that's an area Eurovision is really good at.

I sometimes imagine they playing United States of Eurasia, and that they recieve a bunch of 12 points.

(The rules would have to be changed slightly because one cannot perform on instruments in Eurovision, and we know how Muse reacts to that.)

Dear Jetro,

We have considered your idea to be fucking retarded.

Yours,

Is this a joke?

Yes, Muse should appear on Eurovision if they want to kill their career stone dead.

Doesn't Eurovision work by a committee in each country picking a bunch of songs and getting the public to vote for their favourite?

Sandie Shaw absolutely hated Puppet On A String when she won it.


It would only add fuel to the Muse = Radiohead thing as Radiohead was only prepared to do Eurovision to promote Kid A.

Radiohead were willing to do Eurovision?

Yep. Morrisey has also tried putting in a serious attempt to do it as well.

Wow.
I think it would have been a mistake. A serious mistake.

Then you need to get yourself a sense of humour.

I wasn't joking, hilarious responses though. ^^
I didn't know Radiohead had considered participating...

How so? It would be a way of promoting their music. What's so unlikeable about the Eurovision? Don't you want serious artists to participate?

Because the whole thing is a bit of a joke, in the UK at least. Nobody here takes it seriously. So for Muse to be associated with it would not be a good thing.
