You’d probably think that I as an American I wouldn’t care about Eurovision. But, I think it is the greatest idea ever and super cool. It’s basically the Olympics meets X-Factor- so it’s my dream. It was created as a diplomatic endeavor to bring Europe together with music. I wish we had it in America I mean, that’s a competition I could actually participate in.
Although the the creation of the competition came from a good place, apparently their are still “politics” at play. The UK feels like the rest of Europe is still mad at them for helping out Bush (not the US, George Bush) in Iraq. For those people still mad, please get over it. This is a competition about music, like you’re punishing the songwriters and singers for a politician’s mistake? Puh leezzz.
This year is going to be interesting. I feel like the country’s are playing with different genres, from R&B to country; house music may be taking a back seat this year. Hopefully those who decided to take a slight risk will find themselves in the final. Here are this year’s entries categorized in my own special way.
