…De Toppers‘ Gordon was the victim of a hit and run while on holiday in Greece? He was taken to hospital with several broken bones, and two days ago he tweeted that after 12 days in bed he is now a changed man, appreciating life much more aftert he accident. Asked about his accident he‘s also said; “I normally don’t mind getting hit from behind in Greece, but this time it hurt.” We don’t know if this terrible accident happened in the dark, but if so; it might have helped if he’d been a bit more shi…eh, sparkly…

I'm Norwegian, presently living in Iceland. My mom loves Eurovision, and always let me stay up to watch the contest since before I can remember, so I'm "second generation Eurovision lunatic". My musical god is David Bowie, so I'm obviously not into the stereotypical Eurovision songs. I prefer the rocky/bluesy/jazzy/ethnic songs over schlager and mainstream ballads, though I occasionally surprise myself (and others)... I HATE canned drums and "Cvet Z juga". Photo © Tobias König
