EUROVISION TOP 40 CONTROVERSIES
★★★★

Joel Creasey and Myf Warhurst demonstrate how a pop culture countdown is properly done with this nicely spliced montage of the event's headline-makers. With intelligent input from the likes of Paul Capsis, Casey Bennetto and Adam Richard, it's a fabulous recap of button-pushers, wardrobe malfunctions and the politics behind the puff. There's also a treat from Casey Donovan that pays homage to the No. 1 controversy.

As Eurovision 2018 looms, with Jessica Mauboy representing Australia, SBS checks out the event’s past controversies.
