Last night the BBC broadcast their show ‘Eurovision’s Greatest Hits’ on BBC1. A walk down memory lane of Eurovision classics from some familiar faces.

The show was also broadcast in Ireland on RTE. We are awaiting for viewing figures. What is interesting to see is that the show was trending in Ireland on Twitter – showing the continued interest in the contest in the country.
