    "Lordi has earned their status as all time most creative performances o from the Euro vision Song Contest, but I believe other performances hold the title for best musical performance. But in their defense, they are going against such classics at the 1970's Genghis Khan success. Ultimately, time will tell how favorable the tune remains in our heads, but for now it is certainly among the best. "

    "I know, it's Eurovision, I can't expect high quality bops year after year. But [artisan politics is the only explanation for why a limp MOR rocker like this could make it to 2nd place. Especially in 2010, which was otherwise a great year for Eurovision."
