Englebert Humperdinck is UK's Eurovision performer

  TopCat® 23:24 01 Mar 12

I was somewhat surprised to read that Humpers at the age of 75 will be representing Britain on the 26th May this year. Just goes to show that if yourself and others believe you've still got it, then it's never too late to attempt to knock 'em cold, is it? Good luck to him on his big night in Azerbaijan and I hope all goes well for the UK. TC.

Do we know the song?

  Joseph Kerr 02:41 02 Mar 12

Oops, nope, sorry.

They'd be better of with Lulu, women age better that men (they must use better surgeons) and most of Europe and the younger generation has heard of her. Englebert is is now unknown, aged cruelly and has a damn silly name.

But if they really want to scrape the barrel, I'm sure Cliff Richard (I think he uses the better women's surgeons otherwise he'd surely look more like Kieth Richards) would jump at the chance to have another record in the hit parade of a 7th successive decade...

I'm advised that that was a bit of a bitchy post:)

Quickbeam ".. and has a damn silly name."

Why is that particular name sillier than any other name?

  Quickbeam 08:39 02 Mar 12

Silliness is in the mind of the beholder. I distinctly remember as a 6/7 year old thinking what a daft name it was.

  badgery 08:48 02 Mar 12

On that basis every name in the world is silly then.

Presumably your criteria, '..when I was 6/7 year old' is the defining feature of all your opinions? (:-0)

isn't he a bit passe? perhaps he is on a come back?
