I started watching Eurovision back in 2006, when I was only 10 and couldn't stay up to see Lordi winning. I attended my first contest in 2013 in Malmö. I'm studying journalism and I love music — you will probably never see me without my headphones on.

    I want so hard Pagan Fury to win knowing that they won’t that it hurts. Maybe next year they could try with another of the viking countries.
