Introducing the “Song 9” Rule. This year, to honour the late, great and possibly the most iconic Eurovision commentator ever, Sir Terry Wogan, at the beginning of song number 9 in the final, you must drink a toast to “Song 9”.
(His advice to Graham Norton when he took over the commentating was to never start drinking until Song 9.)
- Take one shot for each host. If the presenter makes a joke that isn’t laughed at.
- Gratuitous appearance of past Eurovision winner or Verka Serduchka
- Long dresses with thigh high splits or gratuitous cleavage. (1 shot each)
- Use of the following – wind machine, fog machine, fireworks, strobe lighting, lasers.(one shot per item)
- The artists thanks Ukraine, thanks everyone, and loves everyone. (one shot per phrase)
- 5 o’clock shadow, man buns or hipster haircuts.
- The reach and grab hand movement towards a camera. Really, any questionable hand actions or overacting.
- Shot for Ukrainian costumes or dancing, or accordions.
- A blurb with Ukrainian travel tips or gratuitous sweeping Ukrainian landscapes
- No socks.
- Instrument played on stage or contemporary dancers? Shot for each.
- The commentator mentions borscht, vodka or any Ukrainian food.
- You hear a cork popping in the commentary. Bonus shot if the commentator is shitfaced before the end of the night.
- Artist looks at the wrong camera.
- The hosts ask ‘Are you ready?’
- They ‘cross to the green room’ and it’s Jamala. 2 shots if it’s Verka Serduchka
- Questionable costuming, props or strange animal sidekicks.
- A country gives its neighbour TOP POINTS
- Ukraine or Australia gets 12 points
- An item of clothing is removed on stage. 2 shots if it is removed by someone else.
- The song has a climactic key change.
- A kiss or a wink at a camera.
- Nonsense lyrics in a song or extra syllables inserted into words. And of course – One shot for “HELLO EUROPE!”
- Techno, dance, or gratuitous solo of any sort – spontaneous dancing must be completed.
- During voting, when crossing to the countries – all hellos must be replied to with “HELLO *COUNTRY NAME*” and waving to the television
- Slow songs must have lighter action.
- Contemporary dancers mean you must also dance interpretively.
- Hair flicking by the artist means everyone must also flick their hair.
- Australian flag in the audience means everyone swaps seats
- Guitar solos must be accompanied by air guitar.
- Suit with no socks? Throw socks at the screen
- Costume change onstage or by the host means you must grab a dress up item from another person and wear it until the next costume change..
- Spontaneously break into applause if the host makes a joke.
