It might be easy for Americans to write off Eurovision as a precursor to the TV show American Idol or the basis for a Will Ferrell movie. However, no American singing show has ever brought the gravitas that Eurovision has. Eurovision is less concerned with styles, genres, age, and popularity and more concerned with finding the next big thing. For over sixty years, the annual Eurovision Song Contest has brought representatives worldwide to compete, celebrate music, and unleash the next big thing onto the world.
