Was pretty funny... the Kiss meets GWAR act was cool.
The girl from Moldova has a cracking body though.

Congrats Finland!

They have never won before and their best results before this was number six in 1973.

Yes, congrats Finland!
Thought the Bosnia-H song was the best though.

Wonder what we will see next year...

Well it depends what you want to see! Basically the Grand Prix showed us the actual folkpop of the countries taking part. If "actual pop music based on a countries classic folk styles" is the theme (it should be, otherwise we can listen to the radio and forge this ****!) of this happening, than Bosnia Herzegowina should be the winner of course!

But in the last years we saw that most of the winning countries forgot their country's own musical roots and made something different! This year Germany had a country song which has been Top 1 in the german pop chart for many weeks. But country was never a part of the german folk music! So it did not work at the Grand Prix! Otherwise Lordi or that russian track with it's so damn stoopid performance came to the top! Why why why!?!?!?

I definately hope that this contest will quit soon or restart in a totally different way! I think most people laugh about it and do not watch it at all!

Oh... by the way, if I did misunderstand you: If you like the music of Bosnia Herzegowina because of it's basical elements, you will probably like a lot of the yugoslavian, bulgarian and macedonian music! I like bulgarian folk pop (called chalga there!) too! Some tracks are very nice! Okay most of it not, as in every kind a music, but there are real highlights!

Well, that reminds me...what are GWAR up nowadays...? Moved to Finnland to ...errrr...advise and inspire? Or is it just that the (younger?) people who watched the contest grew up in the 70s and are socialised with classic rock and all the (older?) others, who were voting formerly weren't allowed to watch by their nurses?

Mmm... yes, Lordi is a Gwar ripoff at least image-wise.

I thought it s*cked totally. The whole songfestival has been gone the drain completely a few years ago already. A lot of crap, just tape with some (lousy) vocals over it, and a lot of stupid politics...

andrewj,

"If you like the music of Bosnia Herzegowina because of it's basical elements, you will probably like a lot of the yugoslavian, bulgarian and macedonian music! "

I like that music alot...but best of all is the Gypsy music..outstanding folk music

I think this festival is very nice to watch, I don't miss it.
