All posts, European Culture & Traditions, Funny

Next Saturday 23rd of May the Eurovision Song Contest will take place in Vienna (Austria).
So here’s a list of the 8 weirdest contestants of all times!

1. Finish scary-singing monsters

When Eurovision stopped being suitable for all audiences…

Lordi – Hard Rock Hallelujah (Finland, 2006)

2. Austrian bearded woman

We must admit we’re secretly looking forward to see her/him presenting this year’s Eurovision Song Contest on Saturday.

3. Spanish Freak(s)

It even makes less sense if you speak Spanish…

4. Ukrainian party: Aluminium foil ft. sequins 

Just… why?

Verka Serduchka – Dancing Lasha Tumbai (Ukraine, 2007)

5. Latvian Pirates

We’re number one fans of these “lyrics”, specially those from 2.05 to 2.15!

‘Wolves Of The Sea’ – Pirates Of The Sea (Latvia, 2008)

6. Russian Grannies

We feel bad for including these cute grannies on our list, but we really had to…

Buranovskiye Babushki (Russia, 2012)

7. Greek soldiers / action men

Were they terrible dancers or was their suit too heavy to move? And PLEASE, can someone tell them the ******* password?

This last video didn’t make it on the list but we thought we should mention it.
