For about half of each year, the Eurovision Song Contest becomes one of our society’s main topics up for discussion! It’s a phenomenon of our current age, that seems to grow in popularity and never fails to stirr alot of interest. Could it actually have something to do with music or is it just cheesy performances put together under a glittering show? Could it be guilt-free fun? An escape from the seriousness of a society’s “more culturally important” affairs or political problematics? Does it concern or should it have to concern an idea of nationhood?
Alot of people act quickly to dismiss Eurovision, claiming that it’s too cheesy for their taste. It would be of great interest to attempt to understand why such a huge amount of people get involved with it. In the end of the day, some important effects on a country’s socio-economical level may be brought about, so we should not disregard Eurovision’s implications. Let’s not forget how many artist now concidered to be very succesful, have had their careers boosted in national, as well as international levels throughout the years.

As the categorys’ suggest, could it be art or could it be nothing at all?
