Music > Hard Rock Hallelujah May 20, 2006

You guessed that right!

Finnish monsters rocked Athens and Eurovision.

Lordi, a Finnish “horror rock” group who dress in monster costumes have pulled off a surprise win at the 51st Eurovision Song Contest in Athens.

European viewers voted for Lordi’s song Hard Rock Hallelujah in a show that is normally associated with catchy pop and big ballads.

Lordi’s masks, armour and jets of flame attracted widespread attention before the contest – but many thought they were too outlandish to win. Against all odds!

Hosting country Greece came ninth with Anna Vissi, who had also been hotly tipped.
