So if the Wolf isn’t having a banana – who is?


The time has come to follow Subwoolfer and fly the flag for Norway in Liverpool.

If you have been paying attention, and if not, why the hell not? I don’t just write this for shits and giggles you know. You may have already watched the three Semi Finals, where the top three qualified, leading us to these nine finalists.

In a change from the last few years, there was no Gold Final, and the winner was decided purely by the televote and jury scores. That led to a great show in the Spektrum in Trondheim, packed to the rafters of baying Norwegians screaming their hearts out.

In another show that fans know fuck all about this contest, their favourite (Ulrikke) got well and truly stuffed by a better song (and one I love) – scoring 41.62 percent of the televote points – yeah, that’ll do it.

Also, if anyone ever wonders out loud in your presence what it means to enter a silly song contest, just play the final six minutes of this show to idiot – Allesandra was totally overcome and it has made me cry. Go on, tell her it means nothing!
