The Weirdest Eurovision Song Contest Performances

The 2023 Eurovision Song Contest is well underway, and although we don't yet know the fate of the UK in the competition, one thing is for sure; we're going to be treated to some seriously brilliant, yet bonkers, performances. Whether it's the participant's costumes (we're looking at those massive angel wings, Norway), the theme (remember those vampires, Romania?), or the performers themselves (we'll never forget Russia's techno-dancing grannies), the song contest is always about so much more than singing. It's an eccentric celebration of entertainment and, this year, it takes place in Liverpool on behalf of last year's winners, Ukraine, and the semifinals have already put presenter Hannah Waddingham at the top of our TV favourites list.

Throughout the years, we've seen some of the world's biggest stars begin their careers in the Eurovision Song Contest. From ABBA to Måneskin, the names to come out of the competition are huge. But there's also been a fair few outlandish acts that have had us belly laughing. While there are many hilarious performances to reminisce about, we've whittled it down to our top ten. Ahead of the 2023 Eurovision final, keep scrolling and watch some of the wackiest, weirdest, and most outrageous Eurovision performances from years gone by.
