With crazy outfits, even crazier songs and just a touch of talent, the British public have revealed in a study from TalkTalk TV the top ten reasons that they tune into the Eurovision Song Contest.

Only 6% of those questioned in the survey were watching the world's 'greatest music competition' for the genuine music talents, and it was in fact a quarter who admitted their main reason for viewing was because 'it's so bad it's good'.

Over 33% take the event as an opportunity to host a party for friends and family for hilarious TV moments, while 20% watch hoping that something will go wrong such as a contestant forgetting lyrics or a comical translation or misinterpretation.

Hidden politics behind voting also proved to be some of the reason that 125 million of us from across the globe tune in, with millions of Brits coming back year after year despite poor performances time and time again.
