Lordi Lordi Lordi



So congratulations to monsters of rock, Lordi, Gene Simmons' barmy Finnish army.

I was genuinely surprised at the result, not believing that there could be so many "ironic" voters out there in Eurovision land.

We voted with our hearts for the Nightingale of Sarajevo. Of course, nobody else in Britain voted for him.

Plus ca change...

  1. I don't think my Mum would have voted for them.

    There was a big sub T'Pau 80s style big hair style groove thang going down, I thought. I actually quite liked the German C & W one meself.

  3. Richard - Betty liked the German one, too. We both liked the Russian one. But we both liked the Bosnian one more. How the hell did Switzerland get any points?

    Mark - Still nul points from the UK as a whole, though. I want my 25p back.

  5. Billy, you are probably right. Mind you, I have the horrible feeling that dear old Iron Maiden will be representing Britain in Helsinki next time.
