Hard Rock Hallelujah!

Finland have finally done it! Thanks to hard rock band Lordi, Finland have finally won the Eurovision Song Contest! Those in the know will know (obviously) that Finland have been taking part in the contest for 40 years, but have only acheived a sixth place as their best.

I really liked the song, since it was a breath of fresh air in the often stale Eurovision Song Contest line-ups. Also, the lyrics contain many humorous details, such as “arockalypse” and “day of rockoning”… 🙂

BBC cover the story here. My sister has all the results on her website.

    Tell you the truth – I was amazed that Finland won the Eurovision. I never heard these types of songs in the Eurovision, so I was a bit shocked…
