If there's one thing you're guaranteed from the Eurovision Song Content it's Britain being handed a string of "nil points".
The other thing you can bet your bottom dollar on is that you'll be treated to a wardrobe malfunction or two.
Over the years the event has served up more than its fair share of costume blunders, with particularly brave or ambitious outfits revealing just a little too much or sometimes falling apart completely.
This year the event is taking place in Turin, Italy, with the final stages on Tuesday May 10 and Saturday May 14.
Fans will be tuning in to see whose song is good enough to bag their nation the iconic glass microphone. But they might also be hoping to see a little more than perhaps the performers bargained for.
Here, we've taken a look at some of Eurovision’s biggest wardrobe malfunctions from years gone by.
Javine nip slip
Javine caused a a bit of a stir while representing the UK at Eurovision back in 2005.
After being chosen as the UK’s nomination, she took to the stage for a second performance of her song ‘Touch My Fire’.
But during the performance one of her boobs made a break for freedom, briefly falling out of her dress before handily popping back in.
Ever the professional, the singer continued as if nothing had happened, but unfortunately for her lots of BBC viewers had spotted the nip slip, prompting a few calls to the broadcaster.
In the Eurovision final Javine finished a disappointing 22nd place picking up just 18 points.
Ilinca Bacila’s revealing red dress
Yodeller Ilinca Bacila captured the world’s attention with her unique singing style back in 2017.
But it was her very revealing, super short red dress that really left viewers stunned.
The Romanian beauty gave fans a glimpse of her private area thanks to a rather high split in her red frock.
Despite the blunder, the pair finished in 7th place gaining a respectable 282 points.
Cristina Caramarcu's boob flashing frock
The Romanians really know how to nail a wardrobe malfunction…
Cristina Caramarcu, lead singer of The Humans, left little to the imagination in 2018, flashing her cleavage and more in a low-cut purple dress.
As she danced on stage, she flaunted her boobs to millions of viewers, but thankfully a couple of cleverly attached nipple pasties prevented a full-on nip slip disaster.
The lead singer from the band The Humans wore a low-cut purple frock and accidentally showed her cleavage as she danced on stage.
Her band, who performed That's How You Write A Song, finished 11th in the semi-final stage and failed to qualify for the final.
Måneskin singer’s broken pants
Who can forget 2021, the year of the winner's broken pants?
Italian rock group Måneskin won Eurovision with their song Zitti E Buoni and their celebrations included an epic wardrobe blunder.
Taking a moment to let the victory sink in, lead singer Damiano David sat down, ripping the front of his trousers.
The tear was spotted by his fellow band members who seized a chance to have a laugh at the singer’s expense.
Damiano, overjoyed at winning the competition, embraced the malfunction and shared it with viewers.
Lill Lindfors loses outfit on stage
Presenters play a vital role in Eurovision but they are just as vulnerable to suffering wardrobe malfunctions. as the performers.
Finnish-Swedish stunner Lill Lindfors was host for the 30th edition of the contest in 1985 in Gothenburg, and something extraordinary happened when she entered the stage.
The bottom half of her dress completely fell apart as she walked onto the stage leaving fans and the presenter shocked.
Moments later she calmly reassembled her outfit which transformed into a long white dress in one of the most iconic moments in the contest’s history.
