They won?! Common sense was the real winner, last night, readers. The Norwegian public voted this ridiculous masterpiece to represent them at Eurovision in May.
What a song. Three minutes of absolute moment after absolute moment.
And the performance? It’ll need some work done to it before going to Tel Aviv. Ok, a lot. But they’ve got two months to fine-tune things.
Best bit? Obviously the joik solo. Leading into a final chorus where drums BANG and the stage in bathed in – what else – northern lights.
Is it a Eurovision winner? It’s about as likely to win as it is likely to flop hard. But it will be a massive standout on stage, and a big highlight amongst the 42 entries.
