The team at wiwibloggs.com have a problem: We’re addicted to Eurovision. As we mentioned in our first installment a few weeks ago, the doctors suggested we download some mainstream music or take up sports, but we weren’t having any of that. We’d much rather own our condition. On the off chance you need a diagnosis, here are 20 more signs—dare we say symptoms?—that you’re a Eurovision fanatic.

1. You own a Nina Badric notebook.

2. You know every step of the opening choreography to “Running Scared” (from any of the six positions in the line).

3. You do not know how to say “hello” in Serbian. But you do know that “ljubav je svuda” means “love is everywhere.”

Serbia, Moje 3, 4

 

4. You wore one of these outfits to the Malmö Arena last May.

5. Whenever anyone brings up a dolphin you ask yourself, “What was Yohanna thinking?”

6. In the past three years your idea of a “dream destination” has expanded to include Malmö, Düsseldorf, or Baku.

7. You own—and wear—a Farid Mammadov “Hold Me” hoodie.

8. You’re pretty sure Holly Valance’s “Kiss You” is a rip-off of Sertab Erener’s “Every Way That I Can”

 

9. In the run-up and aftermath of Eurovision 2013, you watched loads of those “My top 39” Eurovision compilation videos on YouTube until you found one that ranked your country in a position that you agree with.

 

10. You almost lost it in the cinema when you heard Gaitana’s “Be My Guest” playing during the brothel scene in the vampire film “Byzantium”. You lost it again when you couldn’t find the clip on YouTube.

11. When someone on our blog writes a review about your favourite Eurovision star that you don’t agree with, you Tweet hostile messages at us like this:

crazy saade fan

 

12. You know that the best part of Ivi Adamou’s choreography starts at 2:09 in the following video, and you’ve attempted to recreate it in the mirror at least once.

 

13. During periods of austerity you use your spare dreadlock as a necklace.

14. You have an amazing ability to locate “hidden” backing vocalists , including Sakis Rouvas’ from 2009.

15. You have debated which Eurovision 2013 contestant worked the mermaid shape better—Margaret Berger or Moran Mazor.

16. Sometimes when you see the IKEA Fado lamp, you think of that crazy lady from Cyprus’ 2011 Eurovision act.

17. It still upsets you that Dana International spent more money on her web site than she did on her second Eurovision entry “Ding Dong”.

18. You love watching Euroband’s 2008 performance with friends who have never seen it so you can watch their reaction when the blonde woman suddenly appears at the 1:11 mark.

19. You’ve used Twitter to deduce that Irish Eurovision contestant Ryan Dolan usually goes to bed between 11.30 p.m. and 11.45 p.m.

 

20. You’ve wondered whether, with the sound muted, a non-Eurovision fan might mistake Miro for an Elvis impersonater.
