Eurovision! I have been a fan for years, probably too long - I can almost remember Pearl Carr and Teddy Johnson doing "Sing Little Birdie".This year is going to be dominated by the Scandinavians - no real surprise there - and above all those Norse Monsters from Finland, Lordi.
They are a band for whom the phrase "over the top" somehow fails to capture their massive presence.They wear very elaborate make up and costumes and play heavy metal rock, refusing to appear out of character or revealing their true identities, which probably means they are all Lutheran Pastors from Finnmark.The Clue to this enigma, remember you heard it here first, is in the song title which is called Hard Rock Hallelujah
You can hear the song on their great website: http://www.lordi.org/
