The significance or symbolism behind this entrance was never explained to the Eurovision viewers.

8.When Sweden's unleashed its smörgåsbord of awesome.
Since Sweden hosted this year's competition, they were in charge of putting on a musical "halftime show." They knocked it out of the park, performing a song-and-dance number that poked fun at Swedish stereotypes.
Sweden's musical tribute to their country included jokes about recycling...
Cameos from beloved Swedish characters...
And a celebration of the country's marriage equality laws (same-sex marriage has been legal in Sweden since 2009).
The tribute also included dancing Swedish meatballs.
9.When Greece performed its ode to free alcohol.
The song, "Alcohol Is Free," sounded like a traditional folk song when band Koza Mostra began playing, but it quickly morphed into an upbeat pop song.
As most viewers were well into their drinking games at this point in the evening, Greece's performance was one of the highlights of the night.
