Phil’s Eurovision Countdown – Part 12/37 – Finland

Oh Finland.  It’s the law of diminishing Eurovision returns for you lot and no mistake.  You were wacky last year with the man in the green bolero and came second, but you’ve been round long enough to know that copies of an original don’t always work (and yes, Greece and Cyprus I am looking at you)

What is Europe going to see here? Well, my first thought was “Mork and Mindy”

(You young ones are going to have to look that one up) with two people, one of whom is being “Ironic” and performing, and then there is the one doing all the singing, or at least attempting to, who is straining on the high notes and the low notes.  It’s the literal definition of a“scribbled on the back of a fag packet” song which is all forced wackiness and “fun”.

Nul points

t’s anything but, it’s grating and annoying and, personally, the whole on-stage business is the old distracting technique, you know the one, sleight of hand to hide a shit song. I suspect, though, that’s what they were aiming for all along and, well, congrats, it’s worked.

Some people will throw it some votes but, lets be frank here, it’s bloody awful.
