The Eurovision Song Contest is an annual international song contest which has been broadcasted every year since 1956, making it the longest-running television contest as well as the longest-running television programme. It is one of the most watched non-sporting events, with an audience between 100-600 million internationally. This year’s edition will be held in the Rotterdam Ahoy Arena from 12 to 16 May. Every participating country submits an original song to represent their country in the competition. The winner of the Eurovision Song Contest will be chosen through two Semi-Finals and a Grand Final. Traditionally, 6 countries automatically pre-qualify for the Grand Final, the so-called ‘Big 5’ consisting out of France, Germany, Spain, the UK and the host country. The remaining countries take part in one of the 2 Semi-Finals from which the best 10 will proceed to make it 26 countries in the Grand Final. After every participant performs, 1 set of points is given by a jury of 5 music industry professionals, 1 set by the viewers and another set by the other participating countries.
We’ve been keeping track of the talent each country is putting forward and this year, it’s overflowing. Mid-March is the official cut-off date for the countries’ representatives to put forth their participant. Each country is free to put forward their number-1 star or select the best new talent they can find. This year Lithuania is high on the radar, as their song On Fire by The Roop has all the hype right now. Italy is another favourite with Fai Rumore by Diodato. Last year Dutch Duncan Laurence won Eurovision with his song Arcade, and runner up Mahmood has hit the charts internationally as well with his song Soldi. The year prior, Israeli Netta won with her song Toy.
