I don’t often think of the Finns as being terribly amusing. This one was. And it doesn’t matter if he wakes up tomorrow wondering what on earth he said, because none of us know for sure who he was.

People seem to have caught on, realising the importance of not making fools of themselves, language wise.
The UK thought they were finally taking this song contest seriously enough. But they didn’t. Look at what everyone else does! Even the Russian grannies were better than Engelbert. And it goes without saying that we want Wogan back. Now. Or at the very least, next year.
The Swedish song wasn’t too bad. And let’s hope they can avoid the exam season for next year’s contest.
