The Eurovision Song Contest 2015 is fast approaching and the BBC is gearing up with a very special programme tomorrow night which might actually usurp the contest itself.

Eurovision's Greatest Hits will see the return of some of the biggest stars in Eurovision history from our own Johnny Logan to last year's Conchita Wurst.

And it seems the programme, which was recorded on Tuesday at the Hammersmith Apollo in London, boasts some extra special moments.

Logan, the only singer to ever win the contest twice as a performer, rocked a bare, shirtless chest in an evening dominated by suitably flamboyant stage costumes.

But probably the most wonderful highlight of the evening promises to be a duet between transgender singer Dana International, who won in 1998, and last year's bearded winner Conchita Wurst.

They performed their own version of Abba's Waterloo whilst holding hands having already performed their winning tracks (Diva from Dana and Rise Like A Phoenix from Conchita).

Riverdance also make an appearance as do Swedish rock winners Lordi and Russian singer Dima Bilan gets booed (although Graham Norton is having none of it).
