Finland won the Eurovision Song Contest
tonight for the first time ever. For 40 years
it's been the odd point here and there, often
the dreaded "nul points" but tonight they
scored 292, 45 points more than the runners
up Russia (er, since when have Russia
(and Israel and Turkey for
that matter! been in Europe?!)

That is also the biggest winning score
in the history of the Eurovision.

The best Finnish position before tonight was
Marion in 1973 when she came sixth but
tonight Lordi came and stood in his
12 inch platforms and conquered all!

I don't really go for this sort of stuff normally
but I do love the Eurovision and must say
Finland's win this year was well deserved.
Long live Lordi! :-)
