Euro­vi­sion bof­fin Paul is now a con­test judge on French TV

Evening Times - - TIMESOUT DAILY -

FOR­MER Glas­gow Uni stu­dent Paul Jor­dan did so well at writ­ing his PhD on the Euro­vi­sion Song Con­test that he’s now an of­fi­cial judge.

I’m so proud of Paul who has fol­lowed the song con­test since he was a wee boy.

Now he’s had one of his big­gest roles in the com­pe­ti­tion yet, star­ring on French telly over the week­end to judge the of­fi­cial pro­ceed­ings.

He said: “I was asked to be on the in­ter­na­tional jury for semi fi­nal one of the French Euro­vi­sion se­lec­tions.”

Paul learned Rus­sian and Es­to­nian for his the­sis and vis­ited Ser­bia, Fin­land, Swe­den, Es­to­nia, Ukraine, Rus­sia and Greece.

He told me at the time that the the­sis in­volved a lot more than analysing Gina Gs stilet­tos.
