Lordi won Eurovision Song Contest!!!

Post by Stratofanius » Fri Mar 10, 2006 10:26 pm

(TOPIC NAME AND POLL UPDATED)

__ __ __
Lordi is now nominated to Eurovision song contest... :P :roll:
Even I don't like very much of this band, it's great that finally we have band which can maybe win with Lordi's performance, monster costumes and clothes... great. I think that in Eurovision, the song isn't most important thing... it's band's live performance (which is ironic because in Eurovision, I think that they all use playback)...

Are you fucking kidding me? Christ, couldn't we just send tango tunes like we always do...although, they've got lots of humour, so they've got that going for them.

GREAT!!! I knew that they'd make their way to the Eurovision. They're different than and do better music than all the pre-designed meowling "pop-lollitas stars"! :D

For some years now, it is the instruments playback and the voices live... Is Finland qualified for the finals or they will start from the semifinals? I bought tickets for the final testing before the final... 30 euros for the worst seats...

Interesting. It'll be funny and full of contrast to them there compared to the others bands. :twisted:

The rest of Europe laughs at what Finland sends. Scratch that, most of what Northern Europe sends.

Although I do remember a beautiful Norwegian entry that actually one once, years and years ago.

Anyway, the Eurovision is the best source of comedy worldwide.

Well, Sweden, Norway and Denmark have racked up a few victories over the years. Finland? We've managed seventh, once, during the 70s...not to mention, back in the days of the cold war there was the Iron Curtain version of the Eurovision song contest, which Finland also participated in...we got our asses handed to us there as well.

It's very cool to send a band like Lordi to the Grandprix. Usually, it's just meaningless pop-stuff that is being played there.

Why isn1t Stratovarius sent? Or is that a problem, that not everyone is finnish in the band?

Eurovision is thought as a woman's contest generally... And it's not a problem that not everyone's Finnish, Vicky Leandros won for Luxemburg many years ago, although she is Greek... I don't know as much as I seem to. I only repeat what a friend of mine says... :)

I think that Strato is too "power" for Eurovision... and I think that at these days Lordi is more popular (yeah yeah I know what you think...) than Strato at Finland...

You know in Greece people cannot understand that some things happen for businnes reasons.. They think that because they wear masks and other stuff, that they support Satan. The media in Greece is totally rediculous!

I heard that people here have contacted the Finns so as not to let them come and participate... It was the same with Marilyn Manson last year too(but that was fine by me). It's a shame, it's a good song...

You guys have really narrowminded song politics. Look, they've got masks, they must worship Satan! :D

I think it's going to be a war in Finland between Lordi and tango-grandmothers who think that all heavy metal is satanic shit and parents should talk to their children about listening "Devil's music".
