The Eurovision Song Contest is one of the longest running and most popular TV shows in the world. It started in 1956 with just 7 countries participating. Today the annual contest attracts artists from over 40 countries. The competition is regularly seen by more than 200 million viewers around the world. Its official YouTube channel has over 2.5 billion views and is a social media phenomenon with over 3 billion impressions online.
Each country enters one song to the contest, and juries and viewers from all participating countries can vote for their favourites. To keep things fair, you cannot vote for your own country. The winning country is given the honour to host the next contest. Following Portugal’s win this year, the next Eurovision Song Contest will take place in Portugal’s capital, Lisbon, in May 2018.
