Funny: Eurovision Song Contest
- Many, many of them, almost always from Sir Terry's and Graham's commentary.
- Moldova's entry in 2011. SO LUCKY!
- From Eurovision 2012, we have Russian Grandmothers and their Baking Party. They were loved by everyone.
- In the Australian broadcast, we got to hear peoples' opinions on Twitter, which were quite funny.
- In 2012, Mr. Lordi presented Finland's results. He went ahead to declare each top 3 votegetter the "hottest, cutest, prettiest, ______" before actually revealing their identity. See for yourself.
- DUSTIN THE TURKEY, competing for Ireland in 2008. Yes, it's a muppet puppet.
- One of the candidates to represent Estonia in 2013, Meiecundimees üks Korsakov läks eile Lätti, by Winny Puhh is quickly becoming well-known for being a bucket full of "what".
- During the results section 2012 contest, Greece received a high amount of points. Graham Norton's comment says what we're all thinking.
The Greek finance minister has just died.
- 2013's Cezar performing the world's first falsetto vampire dubstep opera, in a giant cape. Over twitter, Mark Gatiss immediately expressed his joy at seeing the Master's new vocation.
- Also in 2013, the character of Lynda Woodruff, a fictional spokesperson for the EBU. It began as a sketch in the Swedish Melodifestivalen the year before and was carried over into the actual Eurovision Finale the next year. Sarah Dawn Finer is absolutely hilarious as Lynda: See for yourselves.
Lynda: I've been given a bedtime snack. These amazing raindeer chips. (sniffs them, coughs) I'll save them for later.
- Highlights include:
Lynda: Well how was I supposed to know we were in Denmark? As if anyone can see the difference. This is what happens when you've bloody Bonnie Tyler on your GPS.GPS: (in song) Turn around...Lynda: Turn it off!
- And, when she's accidentally been in Copenhagen Denmark instead of Malmö Sweden:
- She returned for the 60th anniversary special.
- Lena's EPIC FAIL voting in the 2013 Grand Final. You had one job, girl.
- Any of the Eurovision Book of Records skits from 2014. The "Most Silver" one even referenced the Epic Sax Guy.
- In 2014 the hosts started to talk about the unthanked people of the song contest, the commentators and then go to Graham Norton who clearly wasn't expecting it. Hilarity Ensues
- Just before the voting presentation, host Lise Rřnne took it upon herself to make some of the performers feel at home in the Green Room... by learning about their favorite foods and presenting said foods to them right there and then. Awkward doesn't even begin to describe the UK performer Molly's reaction to being presented a Curly Whirly cake straight from her local Borough Market.
- In 2008, Spain sent Rodolfo Chikilicuatre, a character made for the show by comedian David Fernández, with a song parodying both Eurovision jams, South American reggaeton songs and Spanish summer hits like the Macarena. From being just a parody featured in showman's Andreu Buenafuente program, it became an Ascended Meme in Spain (most people voted for him thinking it was better to send a joke than another performer, since they were going to lose anyway),and was actually sent to the contest. Best part? He made it to 16th. Since then, the performers sent to the show are chosen by Spanish's public broadcasting company.
- Swedish commentator Edward af Sillén is starting to give Graham Norton a run for his money in the comedy department. Highlights from 2015 include encouraging viewers not to look during an advertisement (since SVT that airs the show in Sweden is a public service network that doesn't get funding from advertisement) and this collection of snark which includes a comment that went viral on tumblr and twitter:
- af Sillén: As you might have noticed, Ukraine isn't part of ESC this year. Anyway, here's Russia with a song about peace.
