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.)

The Shots.

  1. Take one shot for each host. If the presenter makes a joke that isn’t laughed at.
  2. Gratuitous appearance of past Eurovision winner or Verka Serduchka
  3. Long dresses with thigh high splits or gratuitous cleavage. (1 shot each)
  4. Use of the following – wind machine, fog machine, fireworks, strobe lighting, lasers.(one shot per item)
  1. The artists thanks Ukraine, thanks everyone, and loves everyone. (one shot per phrase)
  2. 5 o’clock shadow, man buns or hipster haircuts.
  3. The reach and grab hand movement towards a camera. Really, any questionable hand actions or overacting.
  4. Shot for Ukrainian costumes or dancing, or accordions.
  5. A blurb with Ukrainian travel tips or gratuitous sweeping Ukrainian landscapes
  6. No socks.
  7. Instrument played on stage or contemporary dancers? Shot for each.
  8. The commentator mentions borscht, vodka or any Ukrainian food.
  9. You hear a cork popping in the commentary. Bonus shot if the commentator is shitfaced before the end of the night.
  10. Artist looks at the wrong camera.
  11. The hosts ask ‘Are you ready?’
  12. They ‘cross to the green room’ and it’s Jamala. 2 shots if it’s Verka Serduchka
  13. Questionable costuming, props or strange animal sidekicks.
  14. A country gives its neighbour TOP POINTS
