Fans of Eurovision 2019 are getting ready for the Grand Final on Saturday after two talent-packed semi-finals earlier this week. 

Game of Thrones viewers are also gearing up for an emotional weekend as the finale of the epic show will air on Sunday night. 

However for those who happen to be a fan of both these shows there’s a great crossover involving Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbæk) that could bring a smile to the faces of viewers enduring two finals in just over 24 hours. 

Pilou Asbæk was one of the presenters of the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest after Denmark had won the show the year before. 

Emmelie De Forest won the competition in 2013 and Pilou hosted the show alongside Nikolaj Koppel and Lise Rønne when it came to Copenhagen. 

Ruthless Euron, who turned up in season six of Game of Thrones, is a far cry from actor Pilou who showed off his own singing and dancing skills as he hosted Eurovision. 

The dragon slayer attempted to become king in the final season by wooing Queen Cersai (Lena Headey), however he was eventually killed in fight with Jamie Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau). 

Speaking to Sky News at the premiere of the Game of Thrones season eight, he suggested the singing competition was bigger than the HBO epic. 

He said: “Eurovision is the biggest thing in the world. I love the Eurovision. 

“It’s like a week of partying, and I never say no to a party.” 

Meanwhile, during last night’s semi final viewers were left distracted by one performer’s appearance. 

Representing Malta was 18-year-old Michela Pace who booked her place by winning X Factor Malta. 

But as the singer took to the stage fans couldn’t keep their eyes off her unusual knee-high socks. 

One said: “Why the f**k is Malta wearing a cross between a denim jacket and a rain mac? With knee high socks? What?! #Eurovision.”  

Another tweeted: “When you can’t afford the thigh high boots and have to make do with high socks #SBSEurovision #MLT #eurovision.”  

“No thigh high boots for #MLT when you’ve got post surgery compression socks #Eurovision #daretodream,” a third wrote.  

“From thigh high boots to knee high SURGERY SOCKS the song was a winner until random rapping #MLT #Eurovision,” exclaimed a fourth.  

Luckily for Michela viewers still enjoyed the performance and she was voted through to the Grand Final. 

In other Eurovision news, Sophie Ellis-Bextor stepped down from the UK judging panel earlier this week. 

Simon Cowell is the hot favourite to replace her with odds of 7/2. 

The Eurovision Song Contest 2019 final airs Saturday at 8pm on BBC One.
