There'll be the usual gravity-defying hair and eye-popping lycra costumes, but this year's Eurovision Song Contest will also offer a heavy dose of sex appeal thanks to one Miss Dita Von Teese.
The burlesque star gave a glimpse of what is to come as she peeled down to a very racy basque during rehearsals this afternoon in Moscow.
The former Mrs Marily Manson exposed almost all her cleavage - diamante nipple tassels were the only thing saving her modesty - as she practised her routine with the Germany entry for the annual competition.

Basque in the glory: Dita Von Teese rehearses with Germany's Eurovision entry Alex Swings Oscar Sings in Moscow today
Top marks for sex appeal: Dita will perform a burlesque dance to the duo's song Miss Kiss Kiss Bang
Dita was putting the finishing touches on her routine, which she will perform as pop duo Alex Swings Oscar Sings deliver their song Miss Kiss Kiss Bang.
She has had a huge following in Germany since her failed marriage to shock rocker Manson, whose music is popular in the country.
Dita, 36, told German newspaper Bild earlier this month: 'I feel honoured to appear with Alex and Oscar at the Grand Prix in Moscow.
'I hope that our collaboration will win.'
Eyes on the job! The frontman of Alex Swings Oscar Sings struggled to maintain his concentration during the run-through
She may be disappointed to learn that the odds aren't currently in their favour.
While news of her appearance did boost the act's appeal, they are currently priced no better than 40-1 with Ladbrokes, which puts them outside the top ten favourites for the event, which features 25 countries.
Whatever the case, the group shouldn't fare any worse than last year's German entry, No Angels, who ended up in a dismal 23rd place with just 14 points.
Here's a video from the rehearsals, thanks whiteshadows_!
Ms. von Teese shared these news via her Twitter:
"Oooh!Nipplegate isn't just for Americans anymore!Censored by eurovision!Offended by the deep plunging corset..? Its called EUROvision, no?"
"Ps.... I didn't take my boobs out. My offense is showing too much cleavage and flashing the edge of a Swarovski pastie. For the record....!"
