Monsters of Eurovision


I have a secret (well not any more) addiction to the annual Eurovision Song Contest. I love the glamour, the kitsch costumes, the silly pop songs, the leggy young women with big hair and screechy voices. Strangely enough, the act I'm rooting for usually wins, and this year was no exception with the Finnish "monster rock" band, Lordi, taking the prize for "Hard Rock Hallelujah".
