 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.

 EUROVISION SONG CONTEST
Because it is the highest-profile event distributed by the network, the Song Contest itself is often simply called "Eurovision" (especially in the United Kingdom, which transmits fewer Eurovision Network broadcasts than most continental countries).
