Last night's Eurovision interval act hilariously took the piss out of the whole competiton

“Peace peace love love – and a man in a hamster wheel.”

DID YOU TAKE a little break during the Eurovision interval act last night? Head off to make some tea (or refill your wine glass)? You shouldn’t have.

You missed Justin Timberlake, yes, but also a rare moment of the Eurovision becoming self-aware.

Presenters Mans Zelmerlow (last year’s winner) and Petra Mede combined all the cliches to create the ultimate Eurovision performance, complete with a dramatic beginning:

Dramatic costume changes:

And strange, banal lyrics that simply went “Love love peace peace”.

They even brought back past Eurovision contestants, including Alexander Rybak, Lordi, Loreen, and the GRANNIES.
