On Saturday night it's the grand final of The Eurovision Song Contest. This year's British entry is being performed by Bonnie Tyler. I remember Bonnie from the 80s, the biggest hit I remember was called Total Eclipse of the Heart. The song she's signing is called Believe In Me. The chance of Bonnie getting anywhere is of course minimal. The voting has rarely anything to do with the songs and a lot to do with voting for your neighbouring countries. Still, I find it incredibly entertaining. I love the mix of euro-pop and regional variation in what's considered catchy. Over the years there have been strange entries.
I'm looking forward to seeing some Scandinavian rock but I don't know whether there will be any. It's being held in Sweden and one stand out act for me from the past was Lordi, who wore grotesque make up and silly costumes, they were also from one of the Scandinavian countries I can't remember which now (was it Norway?).
