Bring back Lordi!

It might seem like only yesterday.. but it’s now time to bid farewell to our Eurovision OverLordies and choose a new regime for the year ahead. The Guardian’s former CultureVulture, Anna Pickard may, or may not, be live-blogging the event.. but someone else definitely is.. According to the BBC report, “Ukrainian drag queen Verka Serdyuchka is the bookies’ favourite”.. although their reporter likens the act to “Les Dawson trying to sing Gina G.” ANYhoo.. let’s just say I’ll not be placing any money on Dervish.. nor on Scooch for that matter. And Serbia wins.. Serbia wins..And so, to the contenders.. btw the beeb think Germany have a chance..

Not Dervish.

Not Scooch.

Verka Serdyuchka?

*shakes head*

Can we vote for Lordi again?..

And, with a reminder that Ireland [or rather RTÉ – Ed] is the most successful nation since the competition began in 1956, with seven wins.. a final word from Sir Terence..

“It’s a pity it’s not about the songs any more.”


Update Your winner.. apparently.. is Serbia.. this is an earlier performance.. *still shaking my head*
