Just another Missed Opportunity. I think. Perhaps.

Now, those of us of a certain vintage will be able to remember a time when Them Finns were still trying to work out how to win this silly contest that we occasionally adore - or at the very least, be in the same postcode as winning it. It was a bafflement to many in 2005, YLE's final year of unremitting fail, when this got overlooked by the judging panel. This is the first time I've seen it performed live, and I still can't actually see why Geir Ronning was regarded as better. On the other hand, I still can't actually see anyone performing the male vocal part either... it's an unsolved mystery, like the exact whereabouts of the Tom McGrath Perpetual Trophy (sponsored by the Retail Jewellers of Ireland).

What do you reckon (about the song, rather than the Tom McGrath trophy...)?

Elena Mady - An Actress. Guess what? It didn't win...
