Finland Must Win

Finland’s entry into this year’s Eurovision Song Contest is by Lordi, with a song entitled “Hard Rock Hallelujah”. By virtue of the zombie cheerleaders alone, Finland should win. The song is quite catchy actually.



If you live in Europe, and plan on watching Eurovision on 20th May, vote for Finland*!

From the Wikipedia entry for Eurovision Song Contest:

The maximum duration of each song is three minutes, and although musicians of any genre can play, the musicians and songs selected for the Contest tend towards very commercial pop (often called ‘Euro Pop’). Some viewers of the Contest view the event as a combination of camp entertainment and a musical train wreck (a fact played upon in the UK broadcast with the sardonic BBC commentary of Terry Wogan) and a subculture of Eurovision Song Contest drinking games has evolved in some countries.

[Thanks, Vidiian.]

* Except if you’re from Finland, of course, since you can’t vote for yourselves.

UPDATE: Brilliant!!! Lordi won the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest!

    Great Eurovision entry from Finland – but in my mind nothing will ever hold a candle to “My Lovely Horse”!

    bigwig: A worthy entry into the hallowed halls of “Rock Music Videos Featuring Zombie Cheerleaders and Set In High Schools”, but there is something almost classic and anthemic about Lordi’s entry. Unfortunately, many of those new school pop punks bands sound the same.

    Guilded Lily: Ah, Father Ted Criley’s classic Eurosong entry from 1996, another great video. That show was awesome. I’ve got the DVDs. :D

    Wow, what can I say… zombies, cheerleaders… you can’t go wrong.

    I may have to watch Eurovision just for that!

    Dude, you totally have to watch Eurovision, and then get everyone to place bets on who they want to win. :D Years ago, I won some money betting on Sweden. Okay, it was 3 quid, but that was three games of Time Crisis II! Eurovision is especially fun when you watch it with Europeans. Best night in ever.

    In America we have forgotten how to make bitchin music videos. I am happy to see that the “art” form is not lost.

    Lordi will perform ‘Hard Rock Hallelujah’ in the next round of the Eurovision Grand Prix, so prepare to dial in your votes. The official single will be released on 19.05. And then, on 20.05 the final decision will come down in Athens. A grandiose pyro show is guaranteed, and for your viewing pleasure click on the link for a short but amusing film from Finland
