In the UK we call it the Eurovision Song Contest. The Italians call it Gara musicale Eurovision. The French call it Concours Eurovision de la chanson. Whatever you call it, this annual event is growing in popularity year on year. From very humble beginnings and a tiny audience the show now boasts international viewing figures in the hundreds of millions. Over 50 countries now compete by submitting an original (previously unreleased) song which battles through the semi-finals hoping to join the other finalists on the big night in May. Australia are now regular contestants too because their TV broadcaster Special Broadcasting Service (SBS) is part of the EBU (European Broadcasting Union) … and membership of the EBU is a qualification requirement for taking part in the Eurovision Song Contest. It’s a bit confusing but that’s about the size of it.
