on the other hand, what did they expect from a song written by Corneille ? That France will win the Eurovision ? Good joke. Maybe they should ask to some REAL musicians (like J.J.Goldman) to write songs. Not that stupid Corneille...
I think people in our country don't understand yet that shitty stuff like corneille or cheesy pop for-mass-people made (and badly made) only have success in France...

And also, shame on Drucker, who talks DURING the last performance of lordi, and who didn't stop spitting on Lordi all night long.

That night, I was ashamed to be french, but also proud because we gave 8 points to finland. I was proud to be finnish, proud to be a metalhead!!

Indeed.
Their commentaries were not so good (still better than the past few years with Ruckier or Carlier). The second speaker said about Lordi "Finland has never won the Eurovision contest, it's not that year with THAT stuff that they'll win". Ah, shame on him, stupid old fashioned people!
On the other hand, you should have heared the commentaries made by Bernard Montiel on TMC. The guy's a moron, he spend all his time telling bad stuffs about people. He knows nothing about music, all he can tell is "I wouldn't like to have the same haircut than him, he looks like he put his fingers to the power plug" or "she has huge breast, I'd be my pleasure to take some for my dinner".

However, I don't consider the victory of Lordi as the victory of Finland or as the victory of heavy-metal. Just the victory of people who enjoys rock and are tired to see those half naked big breast bimbos moving their ass on dance music. Then of course, in the second place, I'm just glad that it's Finland.

Wow, that was actually a surprise, but a nice one! It's nice that Finland got good points at least once in Eurovision. Lordi was so different compared to those dancer girls. Great! Even if it's still quite surprising; there were many good singers also, there were performanses that were musically better than Lordi, but still Finland won! I'm glad :)

My favourites were for ex. Ireland and Sweden. :)
Live for now, like there's no tomorrow.

Agree! It prove that it's not people who have bad tastes, but medias! And people are able to enjoy something different that those half naked bimbos that you talked about! Clearly a very good sign 8)

You know, in France there are again some people not openminded at all, and who prefer to vote for all those bullsh** of Star academy and other pop stars lol! :roll: :?

Also, the 2 presentators of the eurovision, Drucker and the other one (i don't remember his name), they couldn't stop to criticize Lordi and their music. I'd say they can't stand to heavy metal!! Poor guys!! :lol:
I'm glad about this victory, and also for all the heavy metal universe!! :twisted:

Maybe next year we could have some great bands like Manigance, Nightmare or Adagio for example, who could represent France!! :beer: :headbang:

Actually, Star Academy or Idols is absolutely not the music that sells the most in France (u can check for ex how many copies of the Myriam Abel or Magalie something were sold). I'd say rap & hip-hop sell quite a lot.
What sells the most here is those "supposed to be singer" like Raphael or Carla Bruni, who can't sing at all (they "whisper") and have stupid lyrics.
Also, the 2 presentators of the eurovision, Drucker and the other one (i don't remember his name), they couldn't stop to criticize Lordi and their music. I'd say they can't stand to heavy metal!! Poor guys!! :lol:

They sucked, but like I said, it was not as bad as the ones we had the past few years, or as bad as Bernard Montiel.
Too bad they didn't keep the same speakers than for the Semi-Finale (France 4), because they were really good. One of them is Eric Jean-Jean, one guy who obviously knows much more about music than Drucker.

One thing : how do we call those "TV speaker" in english ?
Some of you said "moderator", but if this is the real word for it, I think it's a really bad one. You know, a moderator is supposed to be neutral, not to say bullshit about bands they don't like, like Silke or Patricia said about the German and French TV Eurovision broadcasting.

Finland, Finland, Finland,
The country where I want to be,
Pony trekking or camping,
Or just watching TV,
Finland, Finland, Finland,
It's the country for me.

You're so near to Russia,
So far from Japan,
Quite a long way from Cairo,
Lots of miles from Vietnam.

Finland, Finland, Finland,
The country where I want to be,
Eating breakfast or dinner,
Or snack lunch in the hall,
Finland, Finland, Finland,
Finland has it all.

You're so sadly neglected,
And often ignored,
A poor second to Belgium,
When going abroad.

Finland, Finland, Finland,
The country where I quite want to be,
Your mountains so lofty,
Your treetops so tall,
Finland, Finland, Finland,
Finland has it all.

Finland, Finland, Finland,
The country where I quite want to be,
Your mountains so lofty,
Your treetops so tall,
Finland, Finland, Finland,
Finland has it all.

Finland has it all...

Your mountains so lofty
Actually they are not lofty at all... biggest mountain is Halti, which is only 1328 metres high...

And this was totally off-topic.

Omg.. It was a nice surprise when I opened the TV and noticed that Finland had 60 points.. Awesome.. However I heard that at the after-contest (the party) Carola, who represented Sweden boycot it. "Her teeth hurt" :D It was too much for the Swedes that Lordi won-.-

Did you watch the same show as I ? on ARD ?
I took the comments of him funny, i don't think he wanted to stab Lordi down.. In fact he took the result pretty cool, and the only thing he said to talk down other countries, was, that the singers couldn't sing.. And sorry, but in most cases this was just true..

Even the people from the Songcontest party afterwards, Hermann and the others, took it pretty cool, and made their jokes, but as they said, most of them were happy that Finland won, although Heavy Rock wasn't their favourite style of music..
Except that "broad", older woman, don't remember her name now, stabbed Lordi down, the others were quite peaceful..

Den einzigen richtig negativen Kommentar hab ich bis jetzt nur auf der Homepage der Bild-Zeitung gefunden :wink:

The comment from Hermann in fact it was Ralph Siegel under the mask was quite funny :lol:

How tragic it is to come from the United Kingdom, a nation that sends a berk with a name like a washing detergent. Now that Lordi have shown how it SHOULD be done, let's hope we pull our fingers out our arses and send Dragonforce next year! :lol:

Are Lordi a satanic band? I've never really listened to their lyrics and don't know what they're all about.

metalheads says Lordi is not a satanic band.
other people from the streets who are listening brit spears and other shit says: they are satanics! and they also say that AC/DC is satanistic (Hells Bells, Highway...etc) or Scorpions....
