What is the Eurovision Song Contest?

The Eurovision Song Contest is an international songwriting competition organized annually by the European Broadcasting Union. Broadcasters from every participating country select one song to represent them at Eurovision, usually through a national competition. This year, 37 different countries from Europe and beyond will be competing. The songs must be original and no more than three minutes long, and no more than six performers can take the stage for any performance. The winner of Eurovision is decided by two forms of voting — a jury of five music industry experts from each country, and live votes cast by viewers, who can vote by telephone, SMS, or via the official Eurovision app.

The Grand Final features winning artists from two semi-finals that aired earlier this week. If you want to watch it all, Peacock is streaming all three events.
