The Eurovision Song Contest is one of those entertainment shows that is so awful, it's hilarious. Of course, it's not meant to be funny, and there are many countries that take the competition very seriously. Here are the ten most ridiculous performances of the Eurovision Song Contest... Dustin The Turkey- Ireland Douze Points In 2008 Ireland sent a puppet to the competition where his lyrics mocked everything and everyone that is Eurovision. He should have won on the fact he gave a mention to Terry Wogan’s wig but it appears even Eurovision has a limit and this was it. Dustin failed to make it past the semi final. Ping Pong – Sameach This is quite possibly the worst song I’ve ever heard. Israel’s attempt in 2000 was a song in which the strange performers shouted ‘be happy’ over and over again while jumping up and down. It managed to score seven whole points. Scooch- Flying the Flag for You Coming second to Ping Pong in the worst song I’ve ever heard is this. In 2007 we sent novelty pop act Scooch as our entry. The awful choreography, out of key singing and one of the worse songs I’ve ever heard earned them 23rd place. Guildo Horn- Guildo hat euch lieb 1998 featured Guildo Horn and his band the Orthopaedic Stockings. Throughout this performance he included audience participation, he played the cowbells and performed all his own stunts. To the amazement of the whole of Europe, he took home 86 points and a 7th place finish. Valentina Monetta – The Social Network Song San Marino’s 2012 entry was originally called 'Facebook Uh Uh Oh' but due to advertising rules it was changed to The Social Network Song, even though all the lyrics still rhyme with Facebook. This entry actually managed to score 31 points which can only be due to this lyric: “If you want to come to my house, click me with your mouse.”
