The Eurovision Song Contest is an annual song competition between the countries of the European Broadcasting Union (and Australia). It has been running annually since 1956 except for 2020, where the COVID-19 pandemic forced its cancellation. The contest is known for being fairly campy and over-the-top.

The Last Video, which featured puppets from Jim Henson's Creature Shop, was shown as an interval act during the 2004 semi-final.
