We love the Eurovision Song Contest.

It's one of those rare moments in the year where everyone comes together to celebrate unity, crazy pop and Graham Norton.

Seriously, the host for the BBC is one of the reasons to tune into the annual glitterfest.

There's a slight smell of wet dog in the arena.

'The last few years the semi-finals have weeded out some of the Eurovision lunacy ... But not this year

Never ever change Graham.
