ESC - Eurovision Song Contest
« on: April 23, 2012, 03:45:01 pm »
It happens every year right? The 'WrestleMania' of all song contests is started in 1956 and Switzerland is the winner of the first contest.

Now, I have to pick this up but, this year's Eurovision (the 57th edition) will be on Baku Crystal Hall in Baku, Azerbaijan.

Some of the songs were amazing, and then I started this craze last year when I watch it on TV Espanol Internacional at home.

So, who's rootin' for this year?

Considering that Ralph Siegel,who wrote "Dschinghis Khan" and so many other ESC songs,also wrote "The Social Network" song I expected it to be good.
Sadly it was really bad.
Russia is in the first semi-final on 22'th May! (Honestly, I want them to be in the final.)

This is the reason why i can't take ESC serious. The music is only a small part of it, the biggest part is sympathy towards a country. Especially the countries in eastern europe give all their points to each other.
