John Oliver Calls Eurovision’s Windows95man His Champion


John Oliver took the first part of Last Week Tonight to talk about the Eurovision Song Contest and highlighted the act from Finland, known as Windows95man.

The HBO late-night host said the Finland entrant was his “absolute favorite,” who appeared on stage singing “No Rules!” written by Henri Piispanen, Jussi Roine and Teemu Keisteri.

Windows95man was seen on stage coming out of an egg-shaped enclosure wrapped in denim while only wearing a Windows95 crop top and cap.

“Yes! Fourteen thousand out of ten,” Oliver said after a clip of Windows95man’s performance.

He continued, “A man with flowing blonde locks and pervert glasses, hatching out of a denim egg? It’s like Botticelli’s Birth of Venus only this time it’s actually good.”

Windows95man performed without shorts and, as he made his way around the stage, he was strategically covered. His denim shorts finally emerge from above and a spectacle of sparks fly as he twirls.

Oliver said that Windows95man’s performance was an “extended Austin Powers bit.” The comedian mentioned that the artist was ranked last by the judges but it was the public that voted by such a large margin that he ended up winning.

“The people of Finland are naturals at ski jumping, sauna and knowing a f***ing star when they see one,” Oliver added.

He ended by saying, “F*** all other music, it is dead to me now. I don’t know wether he won Eurovision or not but to quote a great poet… ‘I don’t care what’s wrong or right it’s how I live my life,’ and that is my champion right there.”

Switzerland won Eurovision, which took place in Malmo, Sweden. Nemo won with 591 points for their song “The Code” and came ahead of Croatia, which took second place, and Ukraine, which took third.
