90. Lordi


Eurovision is usually brass, and I hate it and everything it stands for, but this year something very special happened. A band that have been together for fifteen years and who haven't formed just on a commercial whim won! and they were great! Scandanavian Slipknot crossed with Europe, cheesy song, but fantastic rock poses, throwing some horns, and poking some sneaky tongues out all over the shop (though not in cheek apparently - they do this for a living). High-pitched backing vocals, Torn-esque contact lenses and just pure theatre made this a perfect visual spectacle. They deserved it.

Video is available here!

yeh the music was a bit gash, it's all about the stage show though.

I actually really liked that song, too. Also the Lithuanian mob chant was pretty funny.

i liked the lyrics, not the melody, loved the performance, liking manson at docklands 2000 all over again without the integrity

Actually, Damon Albarn once said he'd do a Eurovision song if they asked him. Mother of all missed opportunities.
