Eurovision Bingo Cards 2023
Are you ready for the greatest show on earth? Well this bingo card isn’t for you then because it relates to the Eurovision Song Contest of 2023. (just kidding)
Yes once again, it’s upon us – the most celebrated, reviled and lampooned song contests on the planet.
Our continental cousins take the competition rather seriously, while here in the UK most of us watch through the cracks between our fingers.
Residing in the ‘so good it’s bad’ file, the Eurovision Song Contest is something of a Spring time viewing staple on this side of the English Channel.
The show airs on the BBC and is presented by the one and only Graham Norton. And to help you enjoy the clichés and tropes that will invariably pervade this bizarre extravaganza, we’ve created Eurovision bingo cards.
How to Play Eurovision Bingo
Instead of numbers, our Euro Vision bingo cards contain sayings, events and clichés, most of which will probably happen throughout the night.
All you’ve got to do is mark them off as they occur. The first person to mark most or all of the items is declared the winner.
To play Eurovision bingo, we highly recommend that you play with friends as part of a Eurovision watch party.
How to Create Cards for Your Eurovision Bingo Night
Choose Card Size – select the grid size box to see the dimensions available. We recommend going with a 4 x 4 layout.
Add Items to The Bingo Card – there are more than 40 pre-filled items so the bingo cards are ready to go. But you can also add your own or change the existing ones if you’d like. They can be added where it says ‘Enter words/emojis’. When you’re ready, press generate bingo card.
Select Number of Eurovision Bingo Cards – you can either choose the number of cards to print from the drop down menu or enter your own number in the custom number box.
You can also invite your friends to play Eurovision bingo by email. Enter their addresses and click invite. After you’ve completed this step, click ‘generate printable bingo cards’.
All of the terms will be jumbled up with each Eurovision bingo card.
You should now be ready to play Eurovision bingo with your friends.

Top 5 Most Notorious Eurovision Moments of All Time
Where to begin? The competition has been careening from one year to the next since 1956. In amongst the numerous gems (Abba, Loreen, uh, Bucks Fizz, Dana International, Conchita Wurst) have been an awful lot of wardrobe malfunctions and some utterly abominable performances. Here are five of the worst/best.
Ireland’s Turkey – 2008
Marking a low point in Irish musical history is Dustin’s Turkey puppet. Yes, that’s correct. Ireland happened upon the idea of using a puppet to represent the country at the 2008 event. ‘Where oh where did it all go wrong’ asked Dustin before his warbling intro morphed into a bizarre electro number. Where indeed. It’s a mystery.
Flying the Flag – 2007
The UK has had its fair share of ‘bad luck’ at Eurovision, despite entering some decent songs from the likes of Gina G and Cliff Richard. Rest assured, that ‘Flying the Flag’ isn’t one of them. The song’s flight attendant theme was sprinkled with some appalling innuendos which we won’t go into here. To top it all off, the song just wasn’t very good.
Cry Baby – 2003
Another atrocity from the UK. Jemini’s alright-ish ditty was ruined on the night by a performance that was about as off-key as you can get. In fairness, the monitors weren’t working but yeesh – what a shocker. By the time the song was over, most of Europe was in tears. The act also failed to score a single point.
Remedios Amaya – 1983
This rock-flamenco hybrid was inflicted upon continental Europe by some Spanish woman called Remedios Amaya. Backed by a plodding bass guitar and not a whole lot else besides, the meandering verse was frantically delivered by a feverish Remedios who sounded a lot like Yoko Ono singing on a good day. Nuff said.
Tune about a Treaty – 1990
Toto Cutugno (us neither) sang about the Maastricht Treaty back in 1990. Oh the excitement. Naturally, Eurovision voters loved it and awarded the drab number first place. Bedecked in a white suit and sporting an alarming mullet, Cutugno’s clench-fisted ode to the EU’s foundation treaty has aged very, very badly.
