OK people. This is getting silly. Some blogs (and some particularly useless news organisations) are actually believing the Justin Hawkins lies that Scooch tricked the public by not showing their backing singers. Let me address this now
1) We knew they had backing singers.
2) The Eurovision rules state that they are allowed up to six band members.
3) I don't think the dance routine would have looked too good in front of two motionless backing singers hence why they were not on stage. It's called "entertainment".
All I see on the Youtube comments and in the blogosphere is despair that Scooch won. Tough luck folks, they did. They won because a majority of voters wanted them to. Now it's time to suck up the bile and get on with supporting them, just as I had to with that god awful Daz Sampson rubbish. Sorry to dis you Daz, you were a good bloke. But I never really did like your song...
Flying the Flag is a fun song, from a fun group who are proud to go to Eurovision for their country. Bid them well, for no matter how badly they do they are flying our flag remember!
And the Mirror needs to lighten up!
