One of the great big problems in the world today is the lack of visions, of engagement, of commitment... So how wonderful isn't it to see that it least someone has it in them?
I always wonder how non-european eurofans percieve the magic of the Eurovision Song Contest. It must be exotic with all the flags and all the countries and all the languages, then calling all the capitals up to collect the points...
So, it feels good to see that there is a blog devoted to explaining Eurovision for Americans, trying to make the whole package a little bit more understandable. Go in there, read it and applaud the initiative.
And all you other non-European fans - if you feel like it, I would love to hear what makes the contest special to you. Leave a comment and tell me.
And, to celebrate the American blog, one of the Americans that have taken part at the ESC through the years.
