'Eu-eu-euro-vision Pardy!'

Saturday saw the return of our second annual Eurovision Song Contest Party! The rules are simple: pick a flag to choose which country you will represent while wearing the fur hat (don't ask!)...





...then watch the song contest cheering along your appropriate countries. When it comes to the voting round if your country has scored the top 12 points you have to vote someone else in the room to 'drink the drink!'. There are 38 countries voting so 38 rounds of 'drinking the drink!'. As we had 12 people this year it was much less messy than last time we celebrated Eurovision with only 6 of us!


Then end the night with some moonwalking!


Unfortunately neither the UK or Sweden won this years contest, with the grand prize going to Finland's death metal group Lordi.

As you can see they are not the usual happy, smiley, cheesy Eurovision winners so I think this result has upset a few people, especially the die-hard fans over here in Sweden! To watch their winning entry click here.

Swedish veteran Carola (this is her 3rd Eurovision final) came in 5th place and can be seen here. The entry from the UK was embarrassingly awful and hardly suprising that it didn't win, but if you really want to see it click here.

Helen,
I think I would have had to have a few drinks just to listen to to the whole song of Finland's group. I am so old...they just made me laugh. Carola was very good. I think she would have been a good winner!

Take care,
Connie
