Eurovision 2010

I don't understand why American networks don't broadcast Eurovision. I would watch it ALL THE TIME.

For those of you who don't know, the Eurovision Song Contest is an annual show held within the countries of the European Broadcasting Union. Each separate country submits a singer and song to the contest, and the people watching vote through televoting or text messages (like American Idol). From what I discern, a tally of the scores within each country for each contestant determines who the country as a whole votes for (so whichever contestant gets the most votes within a country gets that country's vote).

So this year Germany's contestant won. Her performance, while lovely in its own right, was not EPIC. To see epic, you HAVE TO watch the Moldovan entry. The sax guy makes the performance, although the light-up violin is pretty good in and of itself.
