Lena Wins Eurovision 2010
2010-05-30 by Dr Dave De Sylvia STAFF | 30 Comments

German singer Lena won the 55th annual Eurovision Song Contest in Oslo on Saturday.

Lena performed 'Satellite,' which is already a chart hit across much of central Europe, and won a clear majority of the points on offer. Her 246-point total beat the nearest competitor, Turkey's maNga, by a full 76 points.

Lena was chosen to represent the Deutsche Nationalmannschaft by way of the Idol-style talent contest, entitled Unser Star für Oslo (Our Star for Oslo).

There was some controversy at the beginning of the show, as the Spanish entry, performed by Daniel Digas, was interrupted by a stage invader, who later turned out to be serial offender Jimmy Jump. The Spanish were allowed to perform their song in full again at the end of the ceremony, but it failed to lift them above a respectable mid-table finish.

Jump is best known for having invaded the pitch before the Euro 2004 football final and throwing a Catalan flag in the face of Portuguese captain Luis Figo, who had recently left Barcelona for arch-rivals Real Madrid.

As a European, I take pride of our ladyboys, fat chicks and camps guys, and like nothing more than watching them parade around for my humble amusement, Mr. Iamolderthantheinternetlol.

Think of American Idol taking the "best" singer from each state and having them compete.

I love Eurovison so much.

Germany didn't deserve to win (I was barracking for Turkey) but Lena is pretty hot.

Also, Moldova Saxophonist ftw. Thats my kind of dancing!

To be fair, Germany is the only country that could afford to host it next year, they'd be paying for it anyway if any other country hosted it. xD

Is it wrong that despite being British i was hoping we would come last and cheered when Belarus got a lot of points making us last lol
