Awesome: Eurovision Song Contest
  • Any rock song. It's just so rare to have a rock song in Eurovision.
  • According the the judges, Fairytale by Alexander Rybak In 2009, it was given the highest score ever even if others would disagree.
  • The flash mob of 2010 managed to outshine every single entry in that show.
  • "Hello Millstreet, Sarajevo calling". The Bosnian judges phoning in from the middle of a literal warzone just to give their votes live. The audience seemed to think so too. This also doubles as a serious Heartwarming Moment, thanks to the warm applause the audience gives.
  • France's entry in 2009, Et s'il fallait le faire by Patricia Kaas. Only one person on stage, hardly any light or stage show, just 2 minutes and 45 seconds of singing followed by a tiny bit of dancing. Listen to the audience reactions.
  • In 2006, Lordi (Finland) won the contest. Cue Eurovision 2012 with Lordi as the spokeman for Finland.
  • In 1982, a German girl named Nicole won with a sweet ballad about world peace. On the winner's reprise she then switched between four languages in under three minutes.
  • The butterflies used to show each country's flag 2013 were beautifully made and just plain epic; they would fly in, land were the country's flag should be right before the country performed their song, and fly away off-screen.
    • The butterflies were also used to present which countries that qualified for the final. There would be a shadow resembling a butterfly, and when a country was revealed, the country's butterfly would appear on that spot. Just see it for yourself.
  • 2014's winner, Gender Bender and The Cutie Conchita Wurst, using her victory moment to deliver a short but powerful speech — “This night is dedicated to everyone who believes in a future of peace and freedom. You know who you are — we are unity and we are unstoppable.”
