The week's news at a glance.
In a stunning upset, a Finnish heavy-metal band won this years Eurovision song contest. Usually some cheesy Europop act wins the most call-in votes in the highly popular competition, which is televised live throughout Europe. But this year, the over-the-top theatrics of Lordi, a mock-Satanist group whose members wear monster costumes, won the day with Hard Rock Hallelujah. Its the first win for frequent last-place finisher Finland, and the bands hometown, Rovaniemi, says it will name a square after them. The upset was so unexpected that Ireland mistakenly posted a press release congratulating its entrant, Brian Kennedy, on his marvelous win. Ireland has won Eurovision seven times.
