I don't get why it's such an important show. Just another music show, after all.
I think people like the competitiveness between countries (and which country is the best) which sets it apart from other music shows ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
My country always sucks.
Nah, praise Poland.
Greetings from Spain...
It's over 60 years old. It's fun, it's glamorous... It's music.
It's not just a music show, it's the world's largest music show.
Well, it's about having fun mostly so i don't mind.
Unless somebody pulls out playback, then it's dramatic as hell.
It's like a giant train wreck, and one of the trains is carrying several wagons of glitter: it's a disaster, you can't stop watching... and there's several wagons of glitter.
I like how all staff that are visibly online is viewing this single thread
Let's starting betting on which country will win Eurovision
50 quatloos on America! Fuck yeah!
You know how when you go to a metal club (or night, or room if you live somewhere especially unfortunate) you get a standard, or worse, pop song that people headbang their hardest to? This is a several decades long version of that.
As already stated, it's been around for decades, those "just another music shows" that you may know probably wouldn't exist if not for Eurovision. Also, some of the finest musicians got their big break there, winning the competition even, ABBA and Celine Dion for example, and a little metal love, Lordi. That being said I don't think it's as big as it was, yesterday proved that it was more of a source of comedy on social media. But ah well, don't forget the past.
It was (and still is at a very weak extent, due to change of times and decrease of public) more of a political show than talent show in Europe, so it carried that leverage through the years.
On the other hand, big musical singers and groups came out of it, like Abba, and local national singers to each country. The show has been loosing quality on the last couple o decades, so people got surprised with some of the partitions this year. I'm glad my country finally took it seriously after quite some years without a decent participation.
Musicians turn it down here in the UK if they get asked to participate because it pretty much means you're a joke lol. It's all bullshit tbh.
For me it's not cool, I only like the memes it creates every year
Really, it's fun to watch with friends/family and mock the weird songs, laugh at the missed notes and be surprised at the actually decent entries. It's all so over the top, it's great.
Did you see that loon jump up on stage and get his butt out before security jumped up and grabbed him? Lolol
Yeah, that was pretty good. Pretty impressive how the singer was totally unfazed as he basically ran a lap around her.
I've known about it since the 90's but never really cared for it.
It's a bit funny that the only stuff that Portugal wins at is on football and music.
