Finland's Eurovision entry Windows95man might not be the favourite among bookies to win at the grand final tonight, but it's certainly set to be one of the most entertaining acts.

Windows95man, whose real name is Teemu Keisteri, will perform song No Rules along with his friend Henri Piispanen. The techno banger caused a stir at the semi-finals with viewers astonished to see the star emerging from a denim-wrapped egg in the middle of the stage.

The act also raised some eyebrows as at some points he appears to be naked from the waist down - but viewers need not worry, it's all down to clever camera angles and staging.

But who exactly is Windows95man?

On the Eurovision website, he is described as “a sweet and pleasant individual, he is a bit of a shy nerd during the daytime, but when he puts on his uniform, the infamous defunct operating system T-shirt and denim hotpants combo, he transforms into a superman!”

Teemu is a visual artist, dance performer and DJ who first gained recognition in Finland for his paintings and prints, and he even has his own art gallery in Helsinki called Kalleria. He sees himself as 'an embodiment of the '90s, who frees a once timid family man from his everyday life'.

The persona of Windows95man first came to life in 2013 during a DJ performance at Flow Festival. This will be his first ever song - and what a stage for it.

Speaking to the Independent, Windows95 Man said: "Because this is my first song ever, we had three minutes to tell people about my art, so this is really a song for Eurovision. It’s a dream, I never thought we would make it through to the final, so this is amazing."

Eurovision starts at 8pm in the UK on BBC One.
