I am fairly sure he won’t thank me for this in later life. I can always take the post down!

Anyway to enliven the ESC this year we decided to watch it with our baby and take a photo of his reactions to each performance.

    The obvious problem with the methodology was that

    Dad pointing camera at you >>>>>> whatever is on TV screen.

    Also once he spotted a bit of paper it was game over. Clear winners though for Sweden and Bulgaria.

    He appears quite critical of Sweden!

    Proof though of the calming nature of Lithuania after the trauma of the Hungarian warbling.

    I would say that the serious and triumphant solidarity he’s showing with Belarus is more indicative of a win!

    (I completely did not know it was Eurovision last night.)

    Best music review ever!

    I should have charted the kicks from Apollo to get the views of a baby in utero :)

    Loves Sweden, hates Finland, falls asleep during the winning Serbian entry.

    Great idea though. Perhaps that’s how Eurovision should actually be decided… a panel of babies representing each country that votes?!!

    He seems to be acting out Finland’s entry….”Leave me alone”

    In his several months of life he obviously realised that sane, normal people never dressed up as airline hostesses and danced – and then he saw the UK entry. The photo says it all!!

    he’s not asleep during serbia, he is basking in its inevitable and rightful triumph!

    He’s clearly stunned by the Ukrainians, as we all were, and most happy with the Bulgarians, as I was.
