2015 Eurovision Song Contest

This years Eurovision did not disappoint, but than again when has it? For those of you who are hearing about it for the first time, the Eurovision Song Contest is a television show in which different countries in Europe get to send a representative to sing and compete against each other. But you may find that there are two or so non-European countries participating on it.

The show has been running for about 60 years, and is normally broadcast on the television stations of the participating countries. For those of us who are not in these countries, there is always the Eurovision Song Contest website which broadcasts the show for anyone else who wants to see, and enjoy, the show. But they also have the contestants performance and music videos available on their YouTube Channel.

I am always crossing my fingers for Portugal but so far they haven’t taken the first place trophy home, but hopefully one day they’ll have the right song, that will grab the viewer’s attention and let them get the winning points.

With Portugal off the race I had my eyes on Poland with Monika Kuszyńska singing In The Name Of Love, or Montenegro with Knez singing Adio, for the win on the Grand Final. Regardless of not taking the first place, making it to the top ten of 40 contestants is already a win.

The winner of the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest was Sweden with the song Heroes, sang by Måns Zelmerlöw. The song Heroes did have the makings of a winner. Meaningful lyrics, a catchy sound, good performance, a great singer.

Måns Zelmerlöw’s performance was very energetic and also pleasing to the eyes with the incorporation of projection mapping technology. Congratulations Sweden and Måns Zelmerlöw, on another Eurovision victory!
