Below we take you back through our favorite moments throughout Eurovision’s history.

1. Lordi

The Finnish heavy metal band entered the competition in 2006 and made a massive change from the usual cheesy pop entries. Dressed in a Viking/monster inspired outfits, they sang “Hard Rock Hallelujah” and won Finland their first victory at Eurovision with a record breaking 292 points. 


The Eurovision song contest could take credit for getting ABBA’s career off the ground; when they entered and won the competition for Sweden in 1974 they were relatively unknown. The group achieved worldwide fame thereafter, and “Waterloo” was voted the best Eurovision song ever in 2005.

3. Katie Price

Back in 2005, Katie Price made a bid to represent the UK at the Eurovision contest. After a very out of tune performance in a pink latex catsuit, she unsurprisingly lost to Javine – who came in 22nd place at the actual event.

4. Conchita

In 2014, Austrian drag singer Tom Neuwirth took a stand for the LGBT community when his bearded lady alter-ego Conchita Wurst won the contest with bond-style song “Rise Like a Phoenix”. She released her debut album in 2015, which went straight to the top of the Austrian charts.

5. Jemini with zero points

With the worst UK result in the contest’s history, Jemini came home with zero points in 2003 after singing “Cry Baby”. After the contest they were dropped by their record label and unsurprisingly, haven’t made it big in the music business since.

6. Bucks Fizz

Who can forget Bucks Fizz’s colorful 1981 performance at Eurovision that gave the UK its fourth win? The group were formed specifically for Eurovision and after winning went on to have a No. 1 single with “Making Your Mind Up. Bucks Fizz also gave us one of the most memorable fashion moments when the two guys in the group pulled off the skirts of the two girls to reveal a shorter skirt underneath.
