Oh, Eurovision, you truly are our favourite event of the year.
The glamorous outfits, the drinking games, the sometimes questionable performances – it was truly a Saturday night to remember… However, we do remember very little. It’s become an annual tradition for us to gather together and watch the music event, and as usual our fave YouTubers got in on the action as well, hosting parties and becoming entranced by this year’s entrants.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock (or had your internet disconnected over the weekend, in which case we’re incredibly sorry for your loss), then you would have had your Twitter timelines filled with Eurovision tweets. Seriously, we doubt anyone was talking about anything else! Some of them were actually pretty good, which is why, like with previous Eurovision competitions, we’ve rounded up a few of our faves.
Let’s jump into it!
Let the drinking games begin!
This is your 40 minute warning! Here’s my set of drinking rules to have an amazing Eurovision party at home! Have the best time Europe! 💜💜💜 pic.twitter.com/RZ497vUdUb

Don’t lie, we know everyone watches Eurovision for the drinking games. They’re surprisingly creative.

Your first Eurovision?!
Okay so I'm at my first #Eurovision gathering and I've been ASSIGNED a country?!

How was this your first Eurovision, Peter Kingston?! We think we need to have a little talk.

We’re quite bummed Phil Lester didn’t let us know he’d be participating in this year’s competition. What an exclusive that would have been!
Two types of people
— fiona 💞 (@neonfiona) May 12, 2018
This tweet from NeonFiona shows how Eurovision always brings out everyone’s true colours. If you’ve been wondering who you can trust and who you can’t, invite them over to watch the competition. You’ll learn pretty quickly who your true friends are by who they root for.
No one knows the words
— Jazza John (@JazzaJohn) May 12, 2018
Come on, Slovenia, get with the program. We’re here for good times and drinking games, not for actually learning the words to songs.
You’ve got our vote
— Daniel J. Layton (@DanielJLayton) May 12, 2018
We know who Daniel J. Layton was rooting for and we can’t blame him. Nothing beats a sit-down-to-stand-up.
Bring out the pets
I don’t give a shit about people’s real husbands and boyfriends joining them onstage, wake me up when they bring out someone’s real dog #Eurovision
— Lex Croucher (@lexcanroar) May 12, 2018
If we don’t see at least one pet, whether it be dog, cat or gerbil, during next year’s Eurovision competition, then we’re boycotting. Who’s with us?
The ball sweat must be fearsome
Has Austria really got vinyl pants on? That ball sweat must be fearsome. #Eurovision
— Weebl The Bee Whisperer (@TheWeebl) May 12, 2018
Did Austria’s performance remind anyone else of that episode of Friends where Ross wears leather pants?
— Niki and Sammy (@nikinsammy) May 12, 2018
Graham’s expert hosting was noted
Opera singer: *hits amazing note*
Graham Norton: "Nice teeth"
— Penny Kate Starr 🌟 (@Starrlett20) May 12, 2018
Leave it to Graham Norton to completely ignore the performances and comment on practically anything else.
You never know what to expect!
— Ellen Rose (@icklenellierose) May 12, 2018
— Matt Hargreaves (@MattLobster) May 12, 2018
— Roly (@RolyUnGashaa) May 12, 2018
Ellen Rose, Matt Hargreaves and Roly West weren’t the only ones stunned when an audience member ran on stage during SuRie’s set for Great Britain. Anyone else would have stopped performing then and there, but, like a true champ, SuRie kept on singing, stealing the hearts of everyone in Europe.

We were wondering what Pentatonix had been up to lately. Now we know!
Bring on the cheesiness!
— Rebecca (@BeckieJBrown) May 12, 2018
We were waiting for some good ol’ fashion Eurovision cheesiness. Now this is what we call entertaining!
You Swedes, you
Does every Swedish person have a nice face?? Also am I the only person loving this song? Everyone else in this room is hating it although it might be the gyrating of the hips. Which I like. Quite a lot. #SWE #Eurovision
— Emma Blackery 🎨 (@emmablackery) May 12, 2018
Why does everyone from Sweden look so lovely? Also, who ever said gyrating hips are a bad thing? We, like Emma Blackery, think it’s an excellent dance move.
Are we at a rock show?
— Seán Connolly (@TheSonicScrew) May 12, 2018
— Kier Kemp (@KierKemp) May 12, 2018
It appears we weren’t the only one brought back to our teenage rock roots with Hungary’s performance.
YOU GO IRELAND!!!
— Jessica Kellgren-Fozard (@JessicaOOTC) May 12, 2018
We love how inclusive Ireland’s performance was on Saturday night. What a great representation of the LGBTQ+ community. Tons of our faves, including Jessica Kellgren-Fozard, were in agreement with us.
The winner is…
Congrats Israel! The new chicken dance looks great! #Eurovision
— Jacksepticeye (@Jack_Septic_Eye) May 12, 2018
Congrats are in order to Israel, who took home the crown this Eurovision. We can’t wait to try out the new chicken dance at our next party. (And if you ask us, Sean McLoughlin can’t either.)
Another successful Eurovision was celebrated by all!
Can you believe we have to wait another year for until the next competition? We don’t know if we can wait that long! The performances, the excitement, the parties – we LIVE for Eurovision season. How on earth will we manage to pass the time until the next one? Well, checking out our other amazing articles would be a start:
