Greece did a fantastic job of hosting this years eurovision song contest, the opening section was breathtaking, so well done, I've not seen it done better.

So what about the songs, well for about half an hour I was getting a little worried the quality was not very high, but never fear along came Germany with a country style song, and it wasn't bad. Then the middle section of the contest arrived and it was obvious that the winner would come from here. Russia produced their best song for a long time, Romania, the pre contest favourite was sung very well, a young man with a powerful voice. This was followed by Bosnia & Herzegovina, ethnic, melodic, and one of the best songs in the whole show and the best Bosnia have ever produced. Lithuania decided to go down the novelty route and came up with a great song. Our entry in the UK was OK Greece had a great song which I was surprised didn't do better. It was then time for the rock monsters of Finland who rocked and then rocked a bit more. The Ukraine came back to form, Ireland had managed to get through the semi and the song was well received. Finally the last song that was going to stand a chance was Sweden, having failed to automatically qualify for the final after last years poor showing they put everything into their entry this year, Carola, eurovision queen, thumping dance beat and flags how could it not do well, camper than something very camp.

The voting changed this year as we had 38 countries taking part it would have taken about a week to get through unless something was done. So points 1 to 7 were added to the scoreboard and the final three marks were read out. It quickly became obvious that this was going to be a three horse race, Russia, Bosnia and Finland. As it was Finland led the competition from the second country to vote and that's how it stayed, heavy metal wins the eurovision song contest, an interesting concept. There will be those die hard cheese fans who want it to be euro pop but I for one think it is healthy to get something different triumphing. Finland have one of the worse records in this contest and are deserving of the win, rock rules. My sister who is a rock chick and hates the contest even though she is forced by me to watch every year, is in seventh heaven and is at last looking forward to next year. As am I.
