Eurovision 2015

By Bakerquigs @bakerquigs
Hello all
It has begun! The first semi finals were last night. What am I talking about? Well the Eurovision song contest of course! If you have never watched Eurovision you are missing out. It is an unusual part of European culture and opinions are divided, however I personally love it! The countries go all out to stand out, with crazy costumes, props, background dancers, and the music. Sometimes in their native language, which usually sounds weird to anyone that does not speak the language, but it's mostly English. Then after everyone has had their chance to show their act, Europe votes. In the finals, the winner is decide with points. All the European countries can vote for their favorite act, except for their own. They tally up the scores and tadaa a new Eurovision song contest winner!
During the acts they have little films of the country performing next, they focus on one or multiple aspects of the country together with the singer. Then the performance starts, and speaking of performances here are some of the weirdest Eurovision contestants:
Eurovision 2015 Space aliens Ukraine 2007 - Verka Serduchka
Eurovision 2015 Grannies Russia 2012 - Members of Buranovskiye Babushki
Eurovision 2015 Bearded ladies Austria 2014 - Conchita Wurst Eurovision 2015 Gay vampires Romania 2013 - Cezar
Eurovision 2015 Gnomes on unicycles Moldova 2011 - Zdob si Zdub
Even my own country.. what were they thinking? Eurovision 2015 Indians??? The Netherlands 2012 - Joan Franka
and then we have... Eurovision 2015 Finland really outdid themselves... Finland 2006 - Lordi 
The finals are THIS Saturday! Go watch it!
Happy Eurovision, Anouk
