Winner of the first contest you watched
There must be loads of people out there embarrassed to admit that they watch Eurovision. As for me – well, I must say I’m embarrassed too. But not because I’m a tad obsessed with the contest, but because I…well…okay.
I’ve only been watching since 2006!
I can’t remember what I spent my time on before then – it feels like I’ve been waiting on May forever. I found the ESC by accident, having lived for fifteen years in a house, in Australia, with a family who may or may not have heard of it but didn’t see fit to ever mention it, whatever the case. But once I stumbled on Lordi that particular May evening, having always been attracted to any international competition that wasn’t sport related (yes, even Miss Universe!), I was sold. It was true love, and we have been together for five blissful years now. Perhaps we’ll renew our vows in another five? Or perhaps I’ll stop referring to Eurovision as my husband. Anyway, I think my blog is a testament to my comparatively brief, but nonetheless manic (er, I meant,dedicated) following. Now, enjoy Hard Rock Hallelujah.
