Eurovision song contest


As the Eurovision Song Contest is one of the most beloved annual events in Europe, fans around the world are already eagerly anticipating the 2023 edition. It is the biggest music competition in the world, and the upcoming 2023 contest promises to be the most spectacular yet. Here is what we know so far about the upcoming Eurovision 2023.

The host city for this year's Eurovision contest is Liverpool, England. It was supposed to be hosted in Ukraine, as they had won last year's competition and the rules state that the winning nation must host next year’s contest. However, the European Broadcasting Union decided it would not be safe to hold it in Ukraine given Russia's ongoing war there, which is why the second place of 2022’s Eurovision contest gets to host the competition, England. This year’s Eurovision contest is being held at the Liverpool Arena, which has a seating capacity of 11000.

As usual, the Eurovision Song Contest will feature representatives from countries all over Europe. The 2023 contest features 37 countries, each of which will present a single original song to compete for the title of Eurovision champion. The voting system for Eurovision 2023 will be similar to previous years. Each participating country will award points to their favorite songs, with 12 points going to the top choice, followed by 10, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 point for the rest of the top 10. The country with the most points at the end of the voting will be declared the winner.

Eurovision is known for its extravagant performances, extreme costumes, and catchy tunes. Each year, the contest has a unique theme that is reflected in the stage design, graphics, and performances. The theme for Eurovision 2023's theme is “united by music”. Fans can expect diverse musical styles, breathtaking choreography, and innovative performances.

Eurovision has a rich legacy that spans over six decades. The contest has launched the careers of many successful artists, including ABBA, Celine Dion, and Conchita Wurst. It has also played an important role in promoting European culture and diversity.

Eurovision is not a real music event, at least not anymore – it is a lightweight kitschy entertainment show, with music being just a part of it along with the visual elements, the competitive spirit and some humor. Even some hardcore Eurovision fans usually will not listen to the songs after the competition is over because those songs are mediocre at best. Many entries are bizarre because they are aimed to be memorable, funny, or controversial. Others are meant to deliver some social messages, but also in humorous or unusual ways. Of course, there are some very cheesy songs presented as attempts to please everyone, some folk entries to show certain elements of traditional culture, and many visual effects to keep the audience entertained even if they dislike the musical performances. Many song lyrics are written in English by non-native and not so fluent speakers, which results in extremely simple and even grammatically incorrect texts.

A lot has been said about the contest being political, which seems to be the case at least partially, but this makes little sense, because the contest has very small fanbase in most countries and does not represent anything especially valuable or interesting about the participant countries.

Eurovision 2023 promises to be an exciting and unforgettable event. With its impressive history, diverse array of performers, and unique themes, Eurovision continues to capture the hearts and minds of audiences around the world. As we eagerly await the announcement of the host city and theme for Eurovision 2023, we can be sure that the contest will continue to bring people together through the power of music and creativity.
