The Eurovision Song Contest, commonly known as the "ESC" or the "Eurovision," has been a staple of European culture since 1956. This competition began with just seven participating countries and now features over forty countries sending singers to perform in front of hundreds of millions of viewers. With such a long-standing history, tracking all the important things during each contest can be challenging, but we'll try. 😊

To start our journey down memory lane, we must travel back to when seven nations decided they wanted something more significant than their regular music festivals. An event that could celebrate Europe's shared love for music while boosting morale through intercultural exchange between radio stations around European countries and, more broadly, televised entertainment shows—which is precisely how Eurovision was born!

When looking at former participants, you may be surprised by some names appearing here and there. Those might include ABBA, Celine Dion, Tina Turner, or Julio Iglesias, who all made appearances competing year after year without winning the title.

Moving onto actual winners were often mixed genres styles ranging from hard rock and pop but always ensured every nation had the chance to shine. On the same note, the judging panel is usually caused of stars and industry professionals, providing fair standards evaluation when deciding the winner. The unforgettable experience is watching broadcasters open an envelope containing a glittering official card announcing results on live TV.
