Graham Norton’s heartwarming tribute to Terry Wogan during Eurovision final

This was very sweet.

So lovely
So lovely

Graham Norton took a break from his hilarious comments and judgements during last night’s Eurovision to pay a special tribute to Terry Wogan.

Graham admitted it’s “bittersweet” for him, as this the first year without Terry, however did share a lovely tale about why song number nine was so important for them both.

He said, “Tonight’s Eurovision is a bittersweet one for many of us, because of course it is the first contest since the death of Sir Terry Wogan.

“Eight years ago when I was lucky enough to get this job of commentating, Sir Terry very kindly, graciously phoned me and the only bit of advice he gave me was ‘Don’t have a drink before song nine.’

“Now this is song nine. So whilst the crowd here cheer on their home boy, I would urge you back in the UK to raise a cup, a mug, a glass, whatever you have in front of you and give thanks for the man who was, and always will be, the voice of Eurovision.

“Sir Terry, this is song nine.”
