Song contest held every single year in Europe. There is what as called The Big 6, The UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the hosting country, these 6 automatically qualify for the Grand Finale, all the other countries however, have to qualify through the semi-finale.

It is a very political contest as The United Kingdom consistently finishes in the bottom 5 and Greece and Cyprus will religiously give each other the full 12pts every single time, the votes from these two countries, are very predictable. There is also the Nordic friendship with Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Iceland, generally supporting each other. Malta will often vote for Italy and occasionally the UK. Azerbaijan and Armenia just simply don't really vote for each other as well due to political tension.

In Tel Aviv politcalness seemed to be the theme of the night with Iceland's group holding up Palestine flags after receiving their votes, and Madonna did a similar thing as well in the the break between the contest and voting session.

This year (2019), The Netherlands🇳🇱 won with Duncan Laurence's song 'Arcade' in Tel Aviv, Israel 🇮🇱. This means, The Netherlands 🇳🇱 will host the 2020 event and will automatically qualify.

Song competition between European countries and Australia (WTF?!).
Was meant to bring Europe closer together and is now the main reason why we hate each other.
Best European invention ever.
Europe lets Australia participate at the Eurovision Song Contest, but not America. Why? Well, because we hate you, America.
