The Australians are quite keen on Eurovision and show all the semi-finals as well as the final. This morning, a TV pundit was discussing the reasons why. So many Australians are of European heritage, he explained; it's a way of connecting with their roots.
And has there ever been an Australian winner?
Why yes, the pundit replied. Johnny Logan was born in Melbourne and he won Eurovision heaps of times.
The video is pretty funny ... Johnny Logan murmuring 'I still love you Ireland,' and 'come on Ireland'; heinous outfits on the backing singers AND the host has knitting needles sticking out of her ears.
But it also brings back memories of my childhood, when Eurovision was great (and not in an ironic way) and Johnny Logan's win was unimaginably exciting.
Australia, you can keep Mel Gibson, Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe. But Johnny Logan is not up for grabs.
