Eurovision 2014: Why You Should Watch It

Hundreds of millions watch Eurovision each year, but if you’re like most Americans, you’ve probably never even heard of the competition. Big mistake. Watching Eurovision, which concludes later this week, will be one of the highlights of your year. Eurovision Song Contest is sort of like “American Idol,” except that each European country enters one song in a contest to determine which is the continent’s best, as selected by public vote and panels of judges. Some of the songs are catchy – musicians like Celine Dion and ABBA have gotten their big break by winning Eurovision – but most of them are terrible. Laughably terrible.
