UNITED KINGDOM – So I guess it wasn’t only oikotimes who didn’t’ like the show last night, neither the hundreds of Twitter users. Graham Norton also has a say on it.
Graham Norton was left cringing during an incredibly awkward exchange with a fellow Eurovision Song Contest presenter on Saturday night.
The 57-year-old Irish TV host took part in the EUROVISION: EUROPE SHINE A LIGHT that aired in place of the main event – which was cancelled due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis.
And while the main event was cancelled, the tribute show was full of all the awkward moments that Eurovision fans would come to expect – and not least when Graham was tasked with speaking to a presenter in the 2020 host nation of The Netherlands.
Viewers were left covering their eyes – and letting out some laughs – as they watched an awkward exchange between the two presenters.
Following a VT segment, the Dutch host turned to Graham and asked: “I’m sure you will keep a close eye on us, won’t you?”
There then followed a long pause from Graham, before he blurted: “I will of course.”
He then quickly added: “And thank you again, for tonight.”
Moments later he was back narrating the show and blurted out: “God, that was awkward!”
The bizarre scene proved a hit for many tuning in at home.
One Twitter user commented: “One of my favourite TV moments this year so far.”
While another laughed: “He’s had me laughing out loud several times tonight.”
Speaking to BBC show, Norton said that the show was cold and the hosts, amateurs without any sense of humour.
