Get Ready for the Fifty Sixth Eurovision Song Contest!
The Eurovision song contest was designed in 1956 and the idea was that the European Broadcasting Commision, would unite a war weary Europe through Song. Any Country that had the European Broadcasting commision in it, could enter. Course as Europe Grew, its grown so much that now there are not enough time for all of Europe...so they go through sort of heats.
Each Country hosts nominations, the winning nomination goes into the application process, the ones that make it by vote through to the final round are presented to Europe in its entireity. Each Entrant, also has a pannel of Judges who award points 1-10 and 12. The winner gets to play host for the next contest
