Game Of Thrones actor Pilou Asbæk was one of the presenters when the singing competition took place in Denmark.

The Eurovision Song Contest takes place this Saturday (18 May), while Game of Thrones reaches its dramatic conclusion in the early hours of Monday morning (2am UK time).

While there's no denying both events are the most eagerly anticipated TV moments of the year, who knew we'd be able to find a way for them to cross over?

Well, it turns out that back in 2014, Pilou Asbæk - who plays the devilishly wicked Euron Greyjoy in Game of Thrones - was one of the over enthusiastic presenters of the Eurovision Song Contest 2014.

Following Denmark's win in 2013 with Emmelie De Forest’s and Only Teardrops, the singing competition was hosted in Copenhagen and featured the GOT bad boy alongside Nikolaj Koppel and Lise Rønne.

Their hosting skills were definitely... striking, and as Metro reports, their stint included a tongue-in-cheek ode to "Douze Points" The 12 Point song.

Watch it here:


While Pilou Asbæk made it to the end of the Eurovision Song Contest 2014, it's fair to say he'll probably be watching the Game of Thrones grand finale like the rest of us!
