Craig Emerson to represent Australia at Eurovision!

February 11, 2015

It’s the reality TV show that attracts 200 million viewers every year, and this year Australia has been invited to participate alongside 40 other countries in the Eurovision song contest.

Australia certainly isn’t bereft of musical talent with the likes of Guy Sebastien, Anthony Callea and Deltra Goodrem tipped as close contenders for the top spot. However The Gutter Trash can reveal that Craig Emerson has been approached to represent Australia at the Eurovison global phenomenon with his jaw-dropping rendition of The Skyhook’s classic “Horror Movie.”

Speaking to reporters this morning, entertainment guru Molly Meldrum backed the surprise choice.  “Australia is brimming with extraordinary talent, from Olivia Newton John to John Farnham and Renee Geyer,” said Molly.  “Any one of them could have been suitable, but at the end of the day we couldn’t escape the conclusion that they’re all just a pack of tired old hacks.”

“Eurovision is all about fresh young faces and raw talent and that’s exactly what Craig has in bucket loads,” He said.

    Guffaw! That’s about it, ToSY … it wouldn’t be much different from some of the “acts” I’ve seen over the years (I grew up in’t Old Dart remember!) especially in recent years …

    Craig could form a group … didn’t ABBA get their start on EV?

    Surely you mean:

    “Eurovision is all about fresh young faeces and raw sewage and that’s exactly what Craig has in bucket loads,”

    Want to read the silliest article I’ve ever read? Young wannabe journalistic nonsense if ever I read it …

    DO YOU dream of great riches? Island getaways and luxury cars? That if you work hard enough, it will come – you just have to get through the menial ranks first and you’ll be rewarded in later age, right?


    For most of us, it’s probably not going to happen. Yeah, this wasn’t the Tony Robbins-esque inspirational piece you were hoping for – there’s no pot of gold at the end of this rainbow.

    As it turns out, our financial destinies are determined in our twenties. So if you’re 30 and over, it’s too late for you (for the most part). You better get used to life in the middle – unless you win the lottery, inherit loads of moolah from a distant great-aunt or marry a richie rich.

    Your first decade in the workforce sets up what you earn for the rest of your life, according to the Federal Reserve Bank in New York, as reported in The Washington Post.

    Most millionaires don’t actually make it until they are in their fifties …

    Where do News Ltd get these people from … ?

Away from work, she can be found consuming every kind of media across every platform or shopping online.

    And I doubt these numbers have changed much …

    According to Spectrem Group, the average United States millionaire is 62 years old. Just 1% of millionaires are under the age of 35, and 38% of millionaires are 65 and older. West Coast millionaires skew slightly older.Apr 6, 2011

    The one thing I do agree with is that learning is the road to wealth …

    Nah, lts the usual limited-news dross aimed at teabags and wanna-be teabags. The last bits are the clue.

    ”””If it’s not too late for you already, learn as much as you can so you can earn as much as you can.”””’

    and ”””How to ask for a pay rise”””

    #both of which are available to less and less of the workforce, what was this months job-losses, 20,000 full-time.? that went up in smoke. Earlier in said `article` they talk of `brawn` and `brain` jobs, they don`t mention there is less of them either that aren`t junk-job status.

    I don’t believe in an interventionist God.

Go on say something, you'll feel better...
