                        Eurovision: where the neutralist country *cOuGh* Switzerland *CouGh* says, “hey imma host a singing competition so we can all get back together after WW2 lol, I have no idea if this will work but everyone loves music so hey why not.”
                        Then it actually worked.

                                              With regard to the question of the USA not entering because they're not part of Europe (and also to address why Israel, Azerbaijan and Australia are in it), the rule is that if the EBU (the organising body) broadcasts in your country, then you can enter Eurovision.

                                              The EBU has been broadcasting in Israel since the 70s, hence why they can enter. Azerbaijan is the same. Australia are in because the contest is very popular down there, so they were invited to perform. It has now become a permanent thing due to the continued popularity of Eurovision there.

                                              So no, the USA should NOT be allowed in, because if they are, we are on a slippery slope to admitting all sorts of people for all sorts of reasons.

                                                Georgia and Armenia also have competed without beeing in Europe.


                                                In addition in theory the North African countries (Morocco, Algeria, Tunesia, Libya and Egypt) could also participate because they are members of the EBU.

                                              07:24 - my most favourite Eurovision song of all time, from Albania.

                                              Nothing has yet beat it in my mind.

                                                The Eurovision Song Costest was surely a way of bringing together the countries of the EBU. It was not the only one though. To me Jeux Sans Frontières was much cooler, the same fun in the background, but without politics involved. Just willing of having fun, and forget problems amongst the other nations... a combination of Eurovision and Takeshi's Castle.

                                                        I feel like is we joined that we would send a country singer that shows American culture the most, and all of Europe would just be like "what is this :o". Idk maybe Australia would vote for that.

Even if you didn't get any points for voting your still welcome back to compete. Besides, it's not just winning that's important, it's the spirit and joy of watching that makes it fun to win. If it was just about winning it wouldn't be as fun as it is today.
