Lena won the Eurovision Song contest for Germany

So I got news yesterday (my daughter called and I basically enjoyed the final voting live with her over the phome) that Lena had won the Eurovision song contest for Germany.
Big deal if you know the longstanding European tradition of an annual song contest.
I have watched it every year, dating back to my child hood.
The last time a German contestant won, was 28 years ago, Nicole with "Ein bisschen Frieden".
Anyway, this Lena is a fresh 19 year old high-school graduate, with a London accent (she sings her song in English). A bit on the ironic side. And she's cute, no doubt.
A musical masterpiece?
Probably not, but fun:)
