Ana Matronic's Eurovision trailblazers

When you think of the Eurovision Song Contest, you might not always think of ground breaking music, or performances that push the envelope style-wise. But amongst the ballads and Euro-floor fillers there have always been acts brave enough to do their own thing, to break from convention, the acts that have danced to a different beat. We asked BBC Three presenter and Scissor Sisters’ singer Ana Matronic to delve down into the archive and pick her top five Eurovision trail blazers.

Do you agree with Ana’s choices? Which acts would you add to the list?

    Year after year we send 2nd rate entries or singers past their prime to compete with the very best the European countries can muster.
    The Italian entry oozes charisma and an air of being at the top of his game.
    Come on, with all the tallent we have in Britian let's send an entry we can all be proud of and let the music industry benefit from the millions of Europeans who would download our SUCCESSFUL entry, even if we didn't win....
