Writing about web page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krisse_Salminen
Eurovision. Did you get the in-joke? Because I didn’t.
But the blonde girl who kept sticking her ore in throughout the evening was – apparently – a spoof. Krisse Salminen is a Finnish stand-up whose routine is to prance around like a cross between Miss Piggy and Paris Hilton.
Unfortunately, Finnish comedy doesn’t seem to travel very well, and no-one seems to have realised she was a joke.
Perhaps they should have tried Borat.

According to early exit polls, the wise people of Montenegro have voted to become independent of Serbia.
Did these people not watch the Eurovision Song Contest??? The last thing we need is another bloody Balkan country to lengthen the proceedings and inevitably vote for their neighbours!
I think nations should be grouped together and they vote as one (so Latvia, Lithuania and Moldova share, as do Serbia, Montenegro, Croatia, FYR Macedonia).
And it was a shame to see Ireland let the side down and give a disproportionate amount of votes to the UK entry. Please stop it Ireland, you're ruining any credibility we have when we demand the voting system is sorted out!
And I'm loving this story: link – The Russians clearly don't like the fact that Eurovision isn't prone to rigging by the Mafia. Any impropriety is clearly done by 'ordinary' people with no taste.
