THE EUROVISION SONG CONTEST 2007  was hosted by the City of HELSINKI.
The cute Finnish "monster" hard rock band LORDI  won the Eurovision song contest in 2006.  
The clumsy & cute & quite endearing costumes of  these playful (pun intended) band members caused quite a hoopla 
in certain circles around the world. In case you did not get enough: watch LORDI's PERFORMANCE  & judge for yourself.
