Beneath the annual extravaganza of sequins and lights, the Eurovision Song Contest is an undeniably political event, from the strategic voting to using the competition as a way to boost a country's image on the continent.

Waves of turmoil and change have swept over Europe since then, but a few alliances have formed.
