Lordi - Win Eurovision Contest 2006!!!

Hell yeah! If that is not a great victory for hard rock/metal, I don't know what is. No, you're not hallucinating, Finnish metal monsters Lordi won the formatted Eurovision contest (known for its sloppy poppish radio tunes) HANDS DOWN!

They were 44 points ahead Russia (the mullet singer) and gave a fresh new start to the oh-so-boring Eurovision stuff.

We wish to congratulate the winners from the depths of our hearts. LONG LIVE METAL

i can't believe this shit. obviously most of the votes were just beacuse of their appearance, and in my opninion they didn't even play very well. the participation was fun, yet they should not have won it. what we'll get now is either a lot of lordi-like bands in the media, or mainstreamers wearing monstersuits

He was Pasi Rantanen of Finnish power metal band Thunderstone as backing vocalist. That corpsepaint was probably more like Kiss mask. If you saw those papers members of Lordi were holding, there was written "Kiss Army Finland" to Pasi´s paper.

Yes, one of my friends grilled me about that later... Sorry, my mistake. =)

Achmeazorg, if you mean by "play" as really playing the instruments, no. In Eurovisions the music comes playback and only singing is "live". They don't have time to hook all the instruments and do sound check in those 30 seconds between performances. The music sounded everytime identical, except for vocals of course. When you go to real live gig you can except even a little variation and improvisation.

Hard Rock Hallelujah is a bit boring song if you ask me and the singing could have done alot better. But still I'm glad that they won, because 99% of Eurovision songs have been pure crap so far. Okay, and maybe because I'm from Finland too.

I'm not from Finland but for the first time in my life, i trully like to watch a European music contest! Portugal sends some hores that shake their asses but really bad music :\ So this year I really voted for Lordi! I didnt knew the band but their music is from far the best one from the European contest this year so congrats and keep bringing metal to those contests!
