If you haven’t heard of the Eurovision Song Contest, now is a good time to educate yourself. Essentially it’s a competition to find the best bands in Europe and each country sends a representative band to compete. They’ve been around for 50 years and of course receive little attention here in the US.

Nevertheless, I am hooked after seen this winning performance from Lordi, a Finnish rock band of sorts. They remind me of Gwar, but they have their own destinctive flavor. They won the whole show with a song called Hard Rock Hallelujah. It’s hillarious, and a blast to watch. I love the singers hat!

Congratulations Lordi and hats off to Finland!! If any of my European readers have any info or comments on Lordi or Eurovision, please share them with us… I’d love to hear ‘em!
