Congratulations to Norway for winning this year's Eurovision songfestival. "Fairytale" is a fun, gimmicky song that doesn't shine in originality, but is pretty catchy. And that's what Eurovision is and should always be about. I'm totally bummed though that Holland's "Shine" didn't make it higher than the 17th spot, but hey, we'll hope for better things in 2010.
Two of my favorite acts that I've been blogging about in the last two weeks happen to be Norwegian - aha and Kate Havnevik. a-ha is totally back with their excellent new single "Foot Of The Mountain," and Kate is gearing up for the release of her new material. The singer she wrote and produced with Guy Sigsworth (Madonna, Britney Spears, Frou Frou). While eagerly awaiting new material from Kate, check out "So Lo," one of the tracks of her last album. So good.
