Its that time of year again … time for the Eurovision Song Contest (ESC), now in its 55th year and this year from Oslo, Norway.
For the uninitiated, the ESC is a bit like American Idol. Countries in the European Broadcasting Union enter songs and singers in competitions at a country level and then have finals for all of Europe. Winners that you will know of include ABBA who won with Waterloo back in the 70s, and Dana, who is a devout Catholic and had a show on EWTN, as well as Croatian singer Tajci, who now tours the USA singing in Catholic concerts.
So – the competition is this Saturday the 29th. I guess this is mostly toward people in Europe. Who do you favour this year?
Albania: Juliana Pasha-It’s All About You
Turkey: maNga-We Could Be the Same
United Kingdom: Josh Dubovie-That Sounds Good to Me
I think Albania could be the winner.
