Surreal and gaudy fashion is all part of the fun of the annual Eurovision Song Contest, along with power ballads, bizarre stage theatrics and, occasionally, dancing Russian grandmothers.

In the 60 years since the competition was born as the Eurovision Song Contest Grand Prix, 52 countries have taken part and it remains one of the most-watched non-sporting events in the world. Millions tune in every year to watch artists perform on the competition in a feast of glitter and sequins.

Ahead of the final on Saturday, we took a look at some of the ensembles of past performers -- from the wonderfully weird to the downright incomprehensible.
