  • the definition of "what is europe" is pretty damn wobbly and since the "eurovision song contest" isn´t held by the european union but by "eurovision" (a broadcasting, not governmental union), everything goes.

    • i see... i noticed also Australia (!) took part dis year... o_O

      but Israel takes part since 70s... so dunno how it goes...

      also Israel has been part of some UEFA Euros as well... pretty bizarre isn't it?

    • again. eurovision isn´t Europe. it´s a media institution, not a government. they don´t care about geography, they care about profit.
