STORYLINE:
Hours before the final of the Eurovision Song Contest, Dutch contestant Joost Klein was dramatically booted out by organizers over a backstage incident.

He had failed to perform at two dress rehearsals on Friday, and contest organizer the European Broadcasting Union said it was investigating an “incident.”

The EBU said Swedish police were investigating “a complaint made by a female member of the production crew” and it would not be appropriate for Klein to participate while the legal process was underway.

This year’s entries range from emotional to eccentric.
