Recommended Posts

Tomorrow it's the final of Eurovision Song Contest in Moscow, Russia.


Will you watch it? Which country do you hope will win?

"MOSCOW — Amid a frenzied light show, pyrotechnics and questionable wardrobe decisions, performers from across Europe will seek melodic supremacy Saturday night at the annual Eurovision song contest.

The continent's gaudiest, loudest and most popular music competition isn't just a battle of the bands. It's a 24 million euro ($32.5 million) showcase for the 42 participating nations, which typically attracts 100 million viewers from around the world.

As last year's winner, Russia is hosting the annual competition for the first time. The contest hasn't only fired up pop music fans and spawned a host of parties, it has raised issues such as racial tolerance and gay rights only occasionally debated in Russian society." [source]
