TONIGHT TEN YEARS AGO: HELL FROZE OVER - FINLAND WON EUROVISION


Exactly ten years ago Finns had to find a new way of expression, "Hell will froze over before Finland wins Eurovision" just didn't sound right anymore. Lordi came. Lordi scored. 12 points from Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Estonia, Poland, United Kingdom, Iceland and Greece, 10 from Andorra, croatia, Ireland and Lithuania, 8 from Slovenia, Latvia, Belgium, Switzerland, Russia, France, Germany and Spain, 7 from Serbia & Montenegro, Malta, the Netherlands, Ukraine, Belgium, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Israel and Turkey, 6 from Portugal, Moldova and Macedonia, 5 from Cyprus and Bulgaria, 4 from Romania and.... null from debutant Armenia, jury only Monaco and Albania of all places. Finns literally went nuts that night.....
Just for the fun of it, do listen the Finnish commentary by future Eurovision 2007 hostess Jaana Pelkonen, Heikki Paasonen and Eurovision expert Asko Murtomäki. Even if you don't understand a work you can live the tension, joy, screams, disbelief and amazement just listening them from the early excitement to midway disbelief and final explosion of happiness. Enjoy!
