Austria should definitely have won. I really didn't like Israel's song, but whatever.

The good news is Germany got 4th place! Wooooo! We didn't suck balls this year. We even had a pretty good song this year.

I still think it would be hilarious/interesting to see San Marino won, as they would probably double the population if they decided to host it there.

ESC has been a thing since 1956. It was televised every single year then on pretty much every official/government broadcaster for every single member nation.

Yes, it's basically sanremo for the rest of the world :) No, really!

But you see, sanremo is a very big deal for us, regardless of the quality of the acts, it's a big part of our tradition.

Hmmm, yeah, Israel won but Israel is in Asia rather than Europe. As for Australia taking part  :-//

Anyway, something you might not know, the European Broadcasting Union anthem is a piece called Te Deum and was written by Marc-Antoine Charpentier, this is what they normally play:



However, it's played at the wrong tempo, this is how it's meant to be played:



All links are of course safe for work.

I've always seen the ESC as the Olympic Games for music.

Or is it more like the music equivalent of the European championship for synchronized swimming? You know, there are more styles of music than what's performed at the ESC...  :P
