I'll get you for that...btw, was this really a Eurovision entry? (I clearly don't pay enough attention to such things.)

Wasn't Gina G one of ours competing under a UK flag of convenience? (albeit not quite as bizarre as Celine Dion fronting for Switzerland).

I didn't know that, Blair! Australia's had a few winners :)

And of course everyone is eagerly anticipating the announcement of the Aussie rep for 2016 tomorrow...

PS. I never knew 'earworm' was used in English until I googled it...

Ohrwurm is the translation for 'song stuck in your head' (so pretty common expression in the context of Eurovision ;) )
