In bed with a stuffy cold and the bf out with his mates, what better way to spend a non-alcoholic Saturday evening than to watch the Eurovision Song Contest?
The usual European bland pop, some nice-ish ballads, witty Wogan quips, lots of leg and bosom, some funny chanting and for the first time...some ROCK!
Finland won by a mile with their monster-dressing rock band, and I should have trusted my gambling instincts and put a few quid on Lordi to win.
Sweden take the Eurovision seriously (forever looking for another ABBA-type success) but these last couple of weeks, I didn't even know what the Swedish entry looked or sounded like, but I knew all about Lordi cos they were being interviewed by everyone wanting to find out about the weird Finns behind the monster-masks.
Lordi on Top of the Pops next? I wouldn't bet against that!
