Eurovision is LONG and if you’re going to make it through every contestant and voting you’re gonna need a few drinks. Here’s a fun drinking game for you and your pals to get your night going.

DIY Kate Miller-Heidke crown!
Our easy-to-assemble crown won't help you hit those high notes, but it will make you look the part. Get your Eurovision party look right here.

Take a sip when:

  • The lights go dark suddenly and the music gets tense
  • There’s an emotional power ballad
  • The number of flowers on stage outnumber the people
  • Someone hits a high note

Kate Miller-Heidke defied gravity at her Eurovision dress rehearsal and people are going wild
This is not a drill: Kate Miller-Heidke will be airborne at the Eurovision Song Contest.

 

Do a shot when:

  • Iceland's 2019 BDSM art punks Hatari take the stage
  • A song features a key change
  • The commentators mention a repeat contestant
  • Someone mentions ABBA

Finish your drink when:

  • There is an indiscriminate and humongous piece of fabric waving around on stage
  • Australia is mentioned
  • Someone sings in more than one language
  • Someone fake-plays an instrument on stage

DON'T FORGET THE SNACKS
Your Eurovision party menu, thanks to the past 10 winners
