Remarkable outfits outside the regular performances

Dana Internationa's dress she put on for the winning performance has become quite famous. Some composers got especially dressed up for their appearances, most notably Sven-Oloff Walldorff in 1974 and Ronnie Hazelhurst in 1977. Of course, some of the hosts also chose memorable outfits: In 2003, Marie N and Reynars Cowpers opened the show in colourful coats they later took off. In 1985, Lill Lindfors even lost her dress leading to one of the most famous scenes in the history of Eurovision.

This concludes the 14th TOP TEN list. Next week, we will continue with the following topic:

The list will feature singers, composers and lyricists and the ranking will be based on the relative placing they achieved when they returned after winning. Only the appearance that followed right after winning the contest will be considered in case a winner returned more than once. If a team of singer/composer/lyricists returned after winning, they will also be regarded as a team for this list and not as separate entrants.
