*** Others say the only reason Conchita won was because the voters with the most draw are Western and wanted to send a big "F*** you" message to Russia after the latter country's recent implementation of transphobic laws.

** In the interval act of the 2016 contest finale, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMgW54HBOS0 "Love Love Peace Peace"]], the then incumbent winner and host Måns Zelmerlöw advises against winning Eurovision with a song about war, as Abba did with "Waterloo" back in 1974. Come the end of the show, Jamala wins with "1944", a song about the Russian invasion of Crimea.

** 2016 hosts Petre Mede and Måns Zelmerlöw have been considered the best part of the show, especially their "Love Love Peace Peace" sketch.

** In 2016, Poland's entry has been called anything from [[Series/HarryPotter Sirius Black]] to Jesus. The fact that ''Australia'' almost won that year also started many jokes.

* {{Moe}}: While she came last place in 2016, Germany's Jamie-Lee Kriewitz was still seen as TheCutie for being young, dressing in a lolita fashion and apparently having a tendency for adorable head-gear.

** The hosts of 2016 made fun of this trope and presented us with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMgW54HBOS0 this]]. A collection of some of the most famous gimmicks featured in Eurovision.

** The show is quite popular in Australia, where SBS shows it on tape delay for primetime (complete with their own commentators in recent years; they used to carry the BBC's feed). Also the subject of a CutawayGag during the OpeningMonologue of the 2013 edition, which showed an Australian family staying up to watch it live. They fell asleep on the couch. It reached its epix when the EBU, in honor of the ESC's 60th anniversary, invited Australia to participate as a one-off GuestFighter in 2015. The song was very well-received, and placed 5th in the final event, leading the EBU to discuss [[http://wiwibloggs.com/2015/05/21/eurovision-supervisor-australia-permanent-place/95873/ whether or not Australia should be in the ESC permanently.]]
** There's a small but growing group of people in the US who wish that BBC America would air the contest. Some want to watch it because they truly are fans of European music and would like the opportunity to find more potential artists to listen to, others just hear all the snark that Europe throws at it and are interested due to BileFascination.

** The 2016 contest had the jury vote won by Australia and the public vote won by Russia. Because of the opposing views from both voting parties (Australia 4th with public, Russia 5th with jury), they ended up cancelling each other out leaving with Ukraine (2nd in jury and public) the winner overall.
** The 2016 contest's split voting system made the CriticalDissonance particularly obvious. Most notable was Poland, which ranked dead last in the jury votes, with only 7 points. It then came third in the televote, with over 200 points.
