 Eurovision Song Contest - Article from FactBug.org - the fast Wikipedia mirror site
Up until 2003, participation in the Eurovision Song Contest was dependant on a country having performed with a reasonable amount of success for the previous few years.
Following the dominance of English language songs, particularly Sweden's 1974 victory (with ABBA's "Waterloo"), a rule was passed in 1977 that the song had to be sung in one of the official languages of the performing country.
Many viewers of the contest view the event as a combination of camp entertainment and a musical train wreck (a fact played upon in the English-language broadcast with the sardonic BBC commentary of Terry Wogan) and a subculture of Eurovision song contest drinking games and the like has evolved in some countries.

The highlight for many fans is not the singing of the 20-plus songs but the voting carried out by viewers in each country, with results conveyed by local broadcasters, who invariably try to make the most of their moment in the spotlight (the UK's Colin Berry is especially guilty of this).
Some musical trends have emerged during the contest's history: love songs dominated early on; bouncy, kitsch pop songs with ridiculous titles ruled for a long time (from La La La to Diggi Loo-Diggi Ley); before soaring ballads came to the fore, thanks to a spate of Irish successes.
In the early days, Eurovision winners always went on to win a place in the British hearts and charts but that tradition ended in the 1980s, even though the contest still attracts a big audience on BBC1.
