What is the Eurovision Song Contest?

Eurovision is one of the most watched programs in the world, with the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest attracting over 186 million viewers worldwide. Countries send musicians to represent them and viewers then vote on their favorites until there is only one left. (Viewers are not allowed to vote for performers from their own country.) This year, over 41 countries will be sending artists to represent them in the competition, including Darude (of Sandstorm fame) for Finland, Hatari for Iceland, and Katie Miller-Heidke for Australia (it is still unclear how Australia qualifies for Eurovision). You can see all of the artists that will be competing in this year’s contest here. The playlist of this year’s Eurovision songs is available here.
