The Funniest Tweets From Eurovision 2016

Eurovision 2016 aired on Saturday night and as we predicted, it was full of sass from presenters and, probably even more hilariously, the public. Tying into this years theme of ‘coming together’, what perhaps made Eurovision 2016 so great were the people from all over Europe and (increasingly) the world – Australia and America, we're looking at you – who gathered together on their sofas with no other motive than to live tweet their collective glee and, let's face it, sometimes harsh verdicts on the night’s various goings-on.

From members of the public who didn't know what 'Eurovision' was and why it was trending, to those who couldn’t get over the bizarre costumes, here's our roundup of the tweets that kept us laughing the entire night. Enjoy!

For some, the celebrations started early…

 

Even though no one liked the UK’s odds.

 

The hosts went down well with everyone…

 

…if at times they were a little scary.

 

The start of the show made viewers wonder if they’d wandered in to some strange catwalk show…

 

...before the insults started flying from all angles.

There were tents…

 

Boy band cut-outs…

 

And bones of fallen enemies.

 

While some were a little, well, underdressed.

 

There were some great celebrity spottings, from Alanis Morisette…

 

To all our favourite cartoon characters…

 

…not to mention a few Photoshop scandals.

 

And the emergence of some new memes.

 

We witnessed the most intense zoom in history…

 

…followed by some of the craziest dance moves.

 

And even weirder set design choices.

 

There was furious debate on Australia’s involvement…

 

…and even more confusion when Justin Timberlake rocked up.

 

The UK still weren’t feeling their chances…

 

…that is, until Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi ran out of things to do with their evenings and made an appearance.

 

There were some very questionable wardrobe choices during points giving…

 

…and insults were thrown between countries

 

But there was one thing that everyone agreed on.

 

They changed how points were given out, and it confused everyone…

 

Making Australia think that they'd won.

 

Before Ukraine stole the crown out from under them – becoming Russia’s arch-nemesis in the process.

 

Ah Eurovision 2016 – here's to next year!
