The Eurovision Song Contest is an annual song competition broadcast on live television in multiple countries. The rules are simple: various countries choose a song and singer to represent themselves. The various singers then sing their songs in a unique international battle of music and national pride.
The Eurovision Song Contest was first held in 1956 and since then, has become one of the longest running, most-watched and most popular non-sporting events in the world.
