Will "dazzling" rapper Daz Sampson and his bevvy of scantily-clad schoolgirls be able to defeat evil Finnish shock rockers Lordi?
Teenage Life versus Hard Rock Hallelujah - you decide!
Having seen Daz on the telly the other night I must admit that I quite like him. He's no Eminem (he makes John Barnes look like an accomplished rapper), but he seems to be a thoroughly personable and decent chap.
But then again, Lordi have called an album "Arockalypse", and let's fact it, you can't really argue with that.
It's already gearing up to be the strangest Eurovision ever...
Ahhh, I was privileged enough to attend when the UK last hosted it. Me and my little sis took the National Express from London to Birmingham and got changed into our 'finery' in the coach-station loo. It was a night to remember, what with Dana International beating Guildo and the Orthopaedic Stockings and what have you. The contest ended around 11pm, but our coach back to London didn't go until 3am, so we were left idling round the Bull Ring for many an hour. When we finally got home, at around 8am, we watched the whole contest straight through again on video. Good times.
Oh Lordi. They certainly were champs. They reminded me of the biggest of the Muppets (back row guys), especially when the female host kept referring them as "the monsters". Wonderful seeing them being kissed and presented with bouquets of flowers.
Thinking about Daz Sampson, then yeah, it is a funny song to expect Europe to vote for in Eurovision. Bastard thing's stuck on my internal jukebox though, right next to Hard Rock Hallelujah.
Romania deserved to win I reckon. Russia was suprisingly good (my opinion on it improved as it went along).
Lithuania ought to be cast out of Europe after "We are the winners".
