    Quote Quote:
    Finnish monsters rock Eurovision

    Lordi meet the press
    A Finnish "horror rock" group who dress in monster costumes have pulled off a surprise win at the 51st Eurovision Song Contest in Athens.

    European viewers voted for Lordi's song Hard Rock Hallelujah in a show that is normally associated with catchy pop and big ballads.

    Russia was second with Dima Bilan's Never Let You Go.

    But UK rapper Daz Sampson could only manage to come 19th out of 24 countries with his song Teenage Life.

    Lordi's masks, armour and jets of flame attracted widespread attention before the contest - but many thought they were too outlandish to win.


    EUROVISION RESULTS
    1. Finland - 292 points
    2. Russia - 248
    3. Bosnia and Herzegovina - 229
    4. Romania - 172
    5. Sweden - 170
    6. Lithuania - 162

    "We are a rock band and we just won Eurovision - that's weird," their lead singer, also called Lordi said.

    "This was a victory for rock music and also a victory for open-mindedness," he said.

    The result would open the doors for a wider range of musical styles at Eurovision in the future, he predicted.

    "This is proof that from now on there will be more rock bands who will have the courage to join in," he said.

    "This is proof that there are rock fans who watch Eurovision."

    The band had been accused by some conservative Greek organisations of promoting Satanism but said they had no connection with the occult.

    "We have nothing to do with satan worshipping or anything like that - this is entertainment," Lordi said.

    Lordi amassed 292 points after a public vote - 44 ahead of Russia, whose performance by featured a ballerina emerging from a grand piano.

    Bosnia and Herzegovina's entrant Hari Mata Hari was in third place, followed by Romania's Mihai Traistariu.

    Carola, from Sweden, who was the bookmakers' favourite before the contest and won in 1991, came fifth.

    Sixth place went to Lithuania's LT United, six men in suits singing: "We are the winners of Eurovision."

    Hosts Greece came ninth with Anna Vissi, who had also been hotly tipped.

    She was followed by Ireland's Brian Kennedy, who rounded off the top 10 with Every Song Is A Cry For Love.

    Daz Sampson - one half of dance duo Uniting Nations - only gathered 25 points from the 35 countries that took part in the vote.

    No country failed to get off the mark - Malta's Fabrizio Faniello came last with one point.

    The other contenders included a German country and western singer, Israeli gospel and a Latvian a capella group.

    Some 18,500 fans packed the arena in the Olympic stadium complex, with 2,000 journalists and 3,000 police officers on duty.

    The result means Finland will host the competition next year.
    Yuo, Finland won. :knk There's no doubt about it now. So, how do you feel being a host for the next Eurovision?

    Well, we're a small nation from the North, but I think we can handle the job. Helsinki is a pretty good organizing big events. :3

    It's Europe's (propably the world's) biggest song contest held every year. All the competitors come from European countries. Finland has lost 7 times, and left not to participate 5 times. We've been trying 40 years. The best placing before last night was 6th in year 1973. @_@

    Thank you. I would tell the greetings to Lordi himself but it's impossible. XD I'm just a mere citizen of the little city of Raahe.

    I'm really happy for Finland!
    They had tried for 40 years, then it has to be quite an victory. Latvia has participated far less times and we have already been hosting it once.

    But .... winning in Marylin Manson style!!! That's something I didn't expect.

    congratulations finland.

    I didnt watch it but a friend of mine said there was even a song which had only "we will win the eurovision" as the lyrics. O.o

    by the way do any of you vote in eurovision?I dont even know how to vote.I didnt see anybody that knows how to in my country.the points given seems completely political to me.
    Things not going you way?You pick up your toys and go home.That is it?
