The shocking winners from Finland, LORDI might have gotten their inspiration from this band. Here's where you will find the complete score matrix for all voting countries and competing countries. Russia's DIMA was robbed of the win and those who voted for Finland should be forced to dress like the Lordi freaks for 30 days, whenever in public.
Turkey placed a surprising 11th, even though the over-weight and toothy Sibel Tuzun gave a performance we'd all like to soon forget. Sibel, is that a cocker spaniel lounging on your shoulders? Oops my bad, that's your hair... The overall sound and melody of "Superstar" reminded me why jack-hammer operators wear ear protection. ("Dun-dun-dun superstar!!!"- What the hell were those first three slurred words before "superstar"???) This was a pathetic train wreck of a performance: you want to look away but you can't. Oh, and I've seen enough of her gums to become a periodontist, licensed in all 50 states. That outfit would have been equally attractive draped around a tree trunk... or even me for that matter.
Kudos to Athens for managing the event successfully. (Loved the dolphins) See you in Finland in '07! or not!
