What a surprise! I was only half listening to the Eurovision contest yesterday. I loved the Lithuanian band (“We Are The Winners), and expected them to win through sheer cheekiness. I went out of the room to chat with the blokes at contactjuggling.org, and heard a rock band come on. They sounded kinda GWAR-ish. I took a look, and they looked GWAR-ish as well! A Finnish band called Lordi.
Finland has some damn cool bands, including Nightwish (I love their song Sleeping Sun (some samples from them) – but putting a creature-costumed band into the Eurovision? Crazy!
I thought – personally, I’d vote the Lithuanians first, and the Finnish second.
