Lordi, the group that won Eurovision 2006 for Finland, is curently promoting their new album “To beast or not to beast” on Finnish TV. When asked about Eurovision 2013 and Krista Siegfrids, Mr. Lordi replied: “It was my favourite of all the candidates. It is a great show, she is a great girl and the whole package is there. It has as good a chance to do well as any other song”.
Regarding the controversy of the lyrics, Mr. Lordi seems to think that it’s a good thing: “We had our own controversies in 2006, he says, and they were only a help for us in the end. Don’t you worry, girl!”. He also gave some advices to Krista Siegfrids: “Keep yourself pretty, and be noticed. It is ultimately a TV show, and the secret to success is not to get lost in the mass”.
About their Eurovision experience, Mr. Lordi stated: “We as a band are really positive about the whole experience. We would have needed at least five years of hard work and loads of luck to get the same exposure. But unfortunately actually winning the whole thing was too much for some people, and we are always going to be scorned by some for that reason. We only went for it for the publicity – we were about to release our third album and thought that taking part in the Finnish final would give nice promotion. Never, ever did we think we could actually win the Finnish national selection”.
