I love the Norwegian songs - I've always loved them (except that thing with the Colombian boy with the Chicago Bulls shirt - poor). Haba Haba - interesting, exciting, joyful, pleasant - but it was definitely not my favorite song from Norway this year. I was hoping for 'Not that easy' or 'Dance tonight'. It didn't happen.
Stella, cheeky little minx, presented herself at the ESC. I expected this to make the final and I thought this because there was great enthusiasm for it in the hall and they threw glittery paper into the air. So when it didn't I was surprised much like everyone else. Oh well.
