Eurovision wouldn't be Eurovision unless something inexplicably weird happened on stage.
Belarus truly embraced the spirit of the international singing competition... as singer IVAN appeared naked on stage, serenading a wolf.
IVAN, who performed Help You Fly, was not allowed to appear on-stage in the buff live. Instead, an image of him crouching down and singing lovingly to a wolf was digitally projected.
It was just sooooo Eurovision.
Naked man on stage, petting a wolf and promising to help it learn to fly. So Eurovision it hurts.

Naked man howling at an actual wolf. Belarus have already won this, for me. Don't care what the song's like. #Eurovision

It reminded one person of a nightmare they'd had:

The naked man with the wolf even attracted back wavering Eurovision believers...
Ok I said I wasn't going to watch Eurovision but there was a dude on stage and he was naked and uh he brought his pet wolf

"How? How was this allowed to happen?" Was the question on one viewer's lips.
I don't understand how someone could suggest to IVAN that he be naked with a wolf and that it would benefit the performance... #Eurovision

Although others felt some sympathy.
Singing naked to a wolf. Well, we've all had nights like that. #Eurovision

Perhaps IVAN can bear this advice in mind for the Grand Final on Saturday?
