It's almost 66 years since the first Eurovision took place. During the first edition in Switzerland, seven countries were represented by two songs. A host country artist Lys Assia performed the best song called Refrain. The tradition of the winning country hosting the next song contest began in 1958. It's also the longest annual music competition broadcasted live on the TV and one of the longest TV shows. The seven and the most wins have an Ireland, with six wins are Sweden, France, and Luxembourg, then with five awards are The United Kingdom and the Netherlands.
In the podcast, you will hear the story of two sisters, Deanna and Brenda Harrell, from the United States, who have been fans of Eurovision for almost 45 years.
They will tell how everything started and what they think about this year's song contest. Who is their favorite to win, and how did they react to the news of creating the American Song Contest. The third guest will be Jason Heberling, who became a fan in 2014, and he watches everything connected with Eurovision, even national eliminations of participating countries.
