#Eurovision must long be among the most famous televised events in Europe, with last year’s semifinals and final design nearly 200 million viewers, according to organizers. Every participating country chooses one song to portray them in the competition, with winners determined by spectator votes. Over the years, the competition has become known for its elaborate set plans, campy pop ballads, and quirky characters. Notable winners of the 61-year-old contest include ABBA and Céline Dion, though few others have reached the same level of global success.
“We are thrilled that the world’s largest play show is being transmitted live in one of the biggest TV markets for the highly first time,” Eurovision Song Competition Executive Supervisor Jon Ola Sand said in a declaration announcing the Logo broadcasting deal.
Eurovision began in 1956 by just seven European nations and had gradually developed over the years to encompass more countries in Eastern Europe, the Balkans, and even Australia. Despite its immense popularity across this world, the opposition has never obtained the same public in this US. John Kennedy O’Connor, a longtime Eurovision commentator, plus writer of The Eurovision Song Contest: The Official History believes the Logo deal could change that.
