Eurovision has arrived!

May 10, 2017

 

Yes, it is that time of the year where the longest-running annual international TV song competition takes place, bringing together all (or most) European countries and most recently some more geographically distant countries, such as Australia.

 

We all know the drill: Each participating country submits an original song to be performed on live television and radio and then casts votes for the other countries' songs to determine the most popular song in the competition. The official languages of Eurovision are English and French and we all love to hear when they give out points in both languages.

 

But what is all the fuss about? It is one of the most watched non-sporting events in the world with a few hundreds of thousands of viewers across the globe. It is broadcast in over 70 countries and more and more countries are showing interest in either participating or broadcasting it. This year the Eurovision headquarters will be in Kiev, Ukraine.

 

So if you’re a fan of music or some friendly competition, make sure to tune in to the BBC this week to follow which country will be chosen to become the 2017 Eurovision champion and future host of the Eurovision 2018 competition!
