Grattis Sverige! Congratulations Sweden!

So there we have it.  The fabulous Loreen romps to a runaway victory for Sweden and I couldn't be happier for my fave ESC country!

I'm disappointed that Engelbert didn't do better in the voting, and the same for Tooji of Norway.  Spain came Top 10, which is a big improvement for them - and I still think she gave the performance of the night.

The grannies were second, and Serbia took the bronze medal.

I hope you've enjoyed my coverage of Eurovision 2012 in Baku, Azerjibin - and I look forward to sharing all the nonsense again with you all in 2013 in Sweden.  The provisional date has already been set as May 18th, and it looks like we'd be heading to the new "Friends" Arena in the Solna district of Stockholm.

So finally, I think it's right and fitting to sign off in the very same way that I began my 2012 coverage... with a few words from (possible 2013 presenter!) Lynda Woodruffe (aka Sarah Dawn Finer).



  1. What chance Lynda Woodruff to present Eurovision next year? Spain was the runaway winner at the little party I attended (although Estonia got top marks from me and from a cat that sat transfixed in front of the tv for only that song). Thanks for all the tales and images from Baku. Dale

  2. Yes, the best result possible in the end given the shameful voting taking place. I thought Spain won on the night, with Sweden, Estonia and Germany all close behind.

  3. Thank you chum for your highly entertaining reportage and fairly good betting tips - (Cyprus? Hello!) Look forward to catching up soon. J.x
