And hello to the rest of the world. We here at Eurovision America are a rare breed – we are fans of the Eurovision Song Contest from the west side of the Atlantic Ocean. (No, that doesn’t mean we’re pro-Western Europe. Or pro-Eastern Europe for that matter.) We hope to provide a unique view of the ESC as we see it. We’re not attached to any particular competitor country, nor any country that has any time competed (we’re looking at you, Italians!). As we see it, this gives us a unique perspective on the contest that we all love. Eurovision is important to us, even though we’re not European.
What we hope to be able to do here is bring together the Americans that are Eurovision fans. We know there are more of them out there, and there could be many more if they just watched one grand final.
To accomplish our goal, we’ll be bringing you Eurovision news and reviews. And yes, many of them will be published elsewhere in the European world, especially up to the time the contest rolls around in Oslo next year. But we’re a blog – we don’t just report the news, we give commentary on it.
The two authors that we have right now are both U.S. people. We are searching for more authors, so if you’re an American, Canadian, or other English-speaking North or South American, drop us a line, either in the comments or by e-mail. (We’re going to limit this to be English-only.)
