Two decades of mostly underwhelming results since Katrina and the Waves landed the crown in mean that the buzz of welcoming the cream of European pop - as Lisbon is set to do this weekend - is something the nation has almost forgotten.
It wasn't always this way: As it turned out, the event at Birmingham's National Indoor Arena proved to be one of the great nights of Eurovision. BBC News takes a trip down memory lane. A diva is born Media playback is unsupported on your device Media captionEurovision: When Birmingham hosted the singing Olympics Israeli singer Dana International made history by becoming the first transsexual woman to win the contest with her song, Diva.
Her selection as Israel's representative had caused outrage among some Orthodox Jews and she even received death threats. However, her victory by public vote was a signal of how progressive Europe was becoming in its attitudes towards the trans community.
Image caption Dana International has been described as one of the "most iconic and groundbreaking winners" And the winner certainly lived up to the title of her song, leaving the audience at the National Indoor Arena waiting after she'd triumphed. But Dana International wasn't the only act that had people talking in Germany's Guildo Horn brought the house down with an outlandish performance of his song Guildo hat euch lieb!
The balding singer, clad in a turquoise suit though he discarded his cloak and jacket over the course of his three glorious minutes in the spotlighttwice jumped into the crowd, stroked people in the front row of the audience including legendary former Eurovision host Katie Boylebadly mimed playing cowbells and even clambered up the set, completing his song astride a podium several feet above the stage.
While some feared Guildo's eccentric act would make Germany look silly, his antics saw him finish in a respectable seventh place and conferred cult status on him in his homeland.

The UK almost wins - again Image caption Imaani, who came second, initially didn't want to take part at all In recent years the UK has spent more time in the bottom half of the table than the top - with the ultimate rejection coming in when Jemini didn't score a single point - but back in it was still a nation that believed in its ability to deliver a continent-pleasing pop tune.
While Britain might now be the sick man of Eurovision, it is still actually the third most successful country - level with Luxembourg and France and behind only Sweden and Ireland - having triumphed five times. Twelve months on and Imaani almost made it back-to-back success, finishing in second place with Where Are You?
I was pleased as punch. It turned out being one of the most fun things I've ever done - fun and stressful. Mass televoting is introduced Image caption Imaani believes the changes to the Eurovision voting system were good for the contest Beforethe decision on who to award "douze points" was down to national "juries" of experts in each country.
But for the first time - after a trial the previous year - mass televoting was introduced and from the comfort of our own armchairs us mere mortals were allowed to cast our votes Only countries that didn't have fully functional telephone systems were still allowed to vote through juries.
