The Top 5 innovators of the wind machine at Eurovision Part Deux

As we conclude our somewhat blustery yet controversial look at the wind machine in Eurovision we find ourselves at the 2010 contest in Oslo. The act in question is Chanee and N’evergreen and the song was A moment like this. Here we witnessed a startling new use for the wind machine. This Thomas G’son composed number started as a somewhat sedate tale of two lovers who were contemplating the woes of their romance. However what happened at the key change in the final chorus is something that had never been seen at the contest before nor since. As what seemed akin to Hurricane Katrina was unleashed upon our star crossed lovers we actually witnessed Chanee receiving a live facelift from the force of the wind machine. As her face suffered a contraction the stage became ablaze in pyrotechnics. Our brave duo did the Danish people proud in the end and finished in fourth place. You will be pleased to know that Chanee has now fully recovered from her wind induced face lift in Oslo and is happily settled and living in an unknown location in Denmark. No legal action was taken against the EBU and the wind machine following all regulatory health and safety checks has been deemed safe to use for all future competitions. All’s well that ends well.
