    Cool Eurovision 2014

    Experts say all-out war in Europe has been made unthinkable and materially impossible thanks to the European Union - this is false. War still rages within the continent, but the format has simply changed to a song contest: Eurovision

    The Eurovision Song Contest, often shortened ESC, or Eurovision, is an annual song competition held among the member countries of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) since 1956.

    Each member country submits a 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 contest has been broadcast every year since its inauguration in 1956 and is one of the longest-running television programmes in the world. It is also one of the most watched non-sporting events in the world, with audience figures having been quoted in recent years as anything between 100 million and 600 million internationally. Eurovision has also been broadcast outside Europe to such places as Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, Egypt, India, Japan, Jordan, Mexico, New Zealand, the Philippines, Suriname, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, the United States, Uruguay and Venezuela although these countries do not compete.



    What Euromensch will be watching Eurovision 21:00 CEST this Saturday (10th May) live from Copenhagen?

    Denmark unfortunately doesn't stand a chance this year, but even without the patriotic element the show still retains most of its entertainment value as a glitzy musical spectacle with political subtexts and cheesy performances.
    For example, it will be interesting to see if/how the conflict between Ukraine and Russia will be reflected in the votes and audience reactions. Russia supposedly passed the semi-finals to a booing audience.

    I usually watch it. This year, I don't even know who's pretending to represent Germany, though.

    I love Eurovision and definitely will watch tonight! Me, my sister and my mother invite our friends and we'll all watch together. Finally Israel has an actual good song rather than a disgrace. I hope politics won't ruin our chances make it to the final!

    Is it a man?
    Is it a woman?



    It's neither. Presenting Conchita Wurst (Sausage), Austria's entry in tonight's final.

    France has a painted negro. In the show, he even seems to perform bare-chested.



    Is this racism, my dear US?

    Watching it right now - it's a family tradition in Norway.

    I really did enjoy last years top selection - I even made a blog post about it, I believe. Normally, I find it not worth my attention, but last year was different.

    Fingers crossed for this year - so far the first two numbers aren't impressive though...Cheesecake, really?
