8 Craziest Eurovision Song Contest Entries of All Time
Last week, we gave you a basic rundown on the biggest annual non-sporting television event in the world, the Eurovision Song Contest, which is about to start up again, this time in Baku, Azerbaijan.
In our previous post, we put together a list of the ten best contest winners over its 56-year history. But over that same period -- and particularly in recent years -- some countries have sent some pretty outrageous acts to the competition. In this post, we'll look at some of the craziest, starting with #8, above, Estonia's 2008 entry, "Leto Svet" by Kreisiraadio.

5. Les Fatals Picards, "L'amour a la francaise," 2007, France
Is that a cat on his shoulder?
