Ewan Spence looks beyond the sequins, pyrotechnics and key changes to explore what Eurovision really means, from the finer details of the contest to the myth of political voting. This book examines whether the best song ever wins, the media perception of the contest and the ability of this mad, wonderful institution to represent Europe and the people of the continentEurovision is more than three hours on a Saturday night in May. It's something that lives and breathes throughout the year. But what happens between the end of one contest and the start of the next? In those fifty weeks before rehearsals start once more, the Song Contest doesn't stop. It doesn't die. It's still a huge sprawling exploration of culture, music, people, and politics.

    As frothy as Eurovision itself

    A quick and breezy read, and informative for the Eurovision newbie, but Spence needs an editor badly.
