Because of Monster rock and roll band Lordi Shocking victory in last year Eruovision contest, this year Big stage Contest will be held at a hockey arena in the Finnish Capitol of Helsinki, and they are hoping for a repeat victory in Eruovision.
But Before Lordi victory in last year Contest the country because sort of like the Eruovision Version of the LA Clippers, Not much in the 40 years they have been in the Eruovision Contest, they have finish last eight times and scoring Zero points three times, so the Chanes are not that good.
