Eurovision, let me count the ways

How much do I love the Eurovision song contest?  This is the cheesy pop-y song contest that all of Europe gets to take entirely too seriously.  This is the song contest that brought us ABBA.  This is the over-the-top spectacle that can only be improved by British commentator Terry Wogan taking the piss completely out of it.
 
Until now.  Finland won this year, setting a new scoring record.  And they won the contest, a contest previously won by such genre-breakers as Celine Dion, with a little ditty called "Hard Rock Hallelujah".  A song performed by a group called Lordi who seem to be something like the bastard children of Rammstein and Kiss by way of a fright flick.
