Hard rock hallelujah: Finnish rockers Lordi win Eurovision Song…International Herald Tribune
Lordi received 292 points, the highest score in the contest's history. Many Finns were delighted. "I think it was so great because we are always the losers in Eurovision and now we've got the most points ever in Eurovision history," said Nina Nezeri, 26, who was watching the televised contest at home in Helsinki with a group of friends. "It's a good song. They look scary and everything but it's a good song. " Greek contestant Anni Vissi, who drew the biggest cheers from the Athens crowd, finished a disappointing ninth. "It doesn't matter that we lost, we are also winners because Greece put on a great show," Vissi told state-run NET TV.

Luke Harding on Germany’s Eurovision troubles | Special reports |…Guardian Unlimited
“Why do they hate us?” Bild newspaper wondered yesterday. The paper pointed out that, some 60 years after the second world war, 27 European countries had given Germany no points at all. Germany’s last (and only) Eurovision win was in 1982, when the balladeer Nicole won with A Little Bit of Peace. But the problem, it turns out, was not the tame German entry, but the bordering countries. “Unlike other countries we clearly got less help from our neighbours,’ Peter Urban (Germany’s Terry Wogan) remarked. Others were less diplomatic. One viewer complained that the “Slav-mafia” had deprived Germany of a more respectable finish… But does it end there? And did Germans really take David Hasselhoff to their hearts during reunification?It’s true that the Hoff rocked the Berlin Wall hours after it came down, prompting some wags to wonder whether it might have been better if communism had survived a bit longer. But it’s difficult to find his back catalogue in German record shops today, and there has latterly been a bit of a patriotic revival with credible German language bands like Wir Sind Helden (We are heroes) achieving success at home, if nowhere else. Of course, credibility will get Germany nowhere in Eurovision. If they want to win next year, the German entry should dress up as freaks too. Or enter Rammstein. Then they might get a bit more help from their European neighbours. Related articles23.

Norway’s Eurovision singer shakes off her lossAftenposten
“I have a good feeling, and the response has been very good along the way. “Guldbrandsen’s song, a haunting melody called Alvedansen, has been a major hit in Norway and also had received rave reviews from the non-Norwegian press corps. Her rehearsal performance in Athens, where the Eurovision Song Contest was held, also attracted wide interest and some British journalists called her voice “a sensation. “That’s why it was surprising that viewers voting from countries all over Europe failed to give Guldbrandsen many points. It became clear early on that Norway wasn’t going to do well, when country after country failed to even include Norway in their results. A hard rock group from Finland featuring musicians dressed up as monsters ended up with a landslide victory. Sweden, represented by pop singer Carola, placed fifth.

Gulf Daily NewsGulf Daily News
Millions of viewers in Europe and the Middle East were expected to take in the three-hour annual show, which has a cult following around the continent for its outrageous outfits and off-the-wall music. It has also attracted its largest media attention ever according to organisers, with over 2,000 accredited media covering the event at the Olympic Stadium Complex, and between 13,500 and 15,000 spectators in attendance. The opening ceremony hosted by Athens – the winner of last year’s festival – featured a huge golden orb representing the Greek sun, floating waves, and a marine motif from ancient Greek mythology including sirens, sea nymphs, dolphins and tritons. Among the countries represented by groups and solo artists participating in the show are all-time leaders Ireland – who have seven titles but haven’t won in a decade – and a host of nations which emerged from the breakup of the Soviet Union and Yugoslavia… Viewers from 35 countries in Europe, plus Armenia and Turkey will be voting by telephone or SMS message to a central database in Cologne, Germany. Audiences may not vote for the country from which they are calling, even if using a foreign mobile phone number. Greece earned the right to host this year’s Eurovision by winning the 2005 contest in Kiev, with a dance tune titled My Number One sung by Helena Paparizou.

Finnish rockers ‘not Satanists’BBC News
“This is entertainment,” Jaakko Laajava told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme. “Let’s not take this too seriously. ”

“They have produced an album called The Devil Is A Loser and maybe that tells a little bit about this,” he continued. The mask-wearing hard rock band have been accused of promoting Satanism by some conservative Greek organisations… We are not devil-worshippers. This is entertainment. ”

First win

Finland has embraced the band since their Eurovision win in Athens on Saturday, despite earlier concerns that they would tarnish the country’s reputation. “We have not been really spectacularly successful in Eurovision before,” said Ambassador Laajava, “and we are all very thrilled and encouraged by this. ”

The ambassador said he was comfortable with the image of Finland being portrayed by the heavy metal “monsters”. “There are other very successful heavy metal bands in Finland [who are] known also here in Britain – Nightwish, HIM, Rasmus and others. “So there is some tradition in this area.

Israel fails to impress at Eurovision song contestEuropean Jewish Press
The lyrics, part in Hebrew part in English, were written by Orly Burg and Osnat Zvag, while the music was composed by Eddie himself. Speaking at a press conference before the compeition began, Butler said: “I want you to accept me as I am,” adding that he wished for his song to sound like no other previous entries. Butler is no stranger to the Eurovision. In 1999 he was a member of the band Eden, named after his daughter, that represented Israel with the song “Yom Huledet” at the Eurovision which was held in Jerusalem. Eden finished in fifth place. The 34-year-old Butler, is a member of the Black Hebrews, a community of some 2,000 ethnic African-Americans concentrated in the Negev town of Dimona. Although born in Israel Eddie has no voting rights or other citizen’s privileges… In 2004 she was the “voice of peace” at the UNESCO gala in the German town of Neuss. Good record Despite Israel’s failure yesterday in Athens its overall record is more that satisfactory. The country first entered the Eurovision song contest back in 1973 with the song Eysham performed by Ilanit, which finished in fourth place. Since than it has participated 29 times since 1973, winning the contest three times. The first time Israel won was in 1978 in Paris with Izhar Cohen and Alpha –Beta group singing a pop song A-ba-ni-bi. The next year, 1979, in Jerusalem Israel took once again the top spot with the group Milk & Honey singing the ballad Hallelujah. According to the rules of the contest the country that takes the first place has to organize next years contest.

When you read this, the tumult will have abated, the winning song already forgotten. I’ll bet you can’t even remember which country won… I would hardly be sticking my neck out, writing this before the event, if I predicted that the emerging nations of the former Soviet bloc will dominate the contest by the simple ploy of voting for each other, as was their enforced habit while festering under the Kremlin’s shadow. I will be amazed if Belarus gives anything other than “douze points” to Russia; the Big Bear is on their doorstep. The jolly exchange of full marks between Cyprus and Greece is as old as the Odyssey; the Scandinavians will vote for each other, Iceland and Denmark will cement their ancient ties, and nobody will vote for us.

Today.Az – Journal of Turkish Weekly: “What! Ten points for…Today.Az
Eurovision song contest 2006 was a near-tragedy for Turkey. Honestly, it was a tragedy. But there is a good news and a bad one. Good news is we just gave 4 points to Greece and they gave a miserable 3 points to us. That means we are still enemies, so my columnist career can survive.

But this year’s winners were a bunch of rejected zombie monsters from old school 1980’s Doctor Who! How fab is that? How utterly bonkers! And you know what, they think so too: “We are a rock band and we just won Eurovision – that’s weird,” said their lead singer afterwards. Lordi’s lead singer, um, Lordi, went on: “This was a victory for rock music and also a victory for open-mindedness. ” Unconfirmed backstage reports quote him thus: “At least that pesky Time lord wasn’t here to scupper our plans. Nothing in the world can stop us now! We shall use our Eurovision victory to take over the universe.

In La-la landThe Observer
More often we hear of a ‘democratic deficit’ – that decisions are made out of sight of the people. There is an exception: the Eurovision song contest. Once, shadowy national juries allocated votes on behalf of the nation. But now millions of TV viewers across the continent get to vote by phone or text message for the kitsch musical abomination of their choice. (Naturally we congratulate this year’s deserving winners. ) This popular participation has only exacerbated the trend for ancient enmities and neighbourly alliances to take precedence over the music.
