If there’s one thing Eurovision is good for, it’s bringing a good old spectacle to viewers tuning in around the globe. Over the years, the Song Contest has given us a plethora of crazy stunts, outlandish costumes and truly unforgettable acts.

But looking back over its 64-year history - just how unforgettable are they?

The competition might not be happening this year, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get in the spirit – and to put your knowledge to the test, we’ve picked eight of the most unusual Eurovision acts ever, and mixed them in with a few who might look the part, but never actually appeared on the competition stage.

How many can you name? Take our “Eurovision Or Imposter” quiz below:
