Eurovision? Hasn't America suffered enough?

Americans will screw it up.  Probably by taking it too seriously.

Lord. My husband already makes me watch America's Got Talent and Britain's Got Talent via YouTube. I can't take anymore of this stuff.

We need another few Law & Orders instead.

"American Song Contest"

In case you needed an example today why everyone in every position of power in this entire country is an absolute drooling imbecile.

Thanks to Covid, Little Big was *robbed*.  That totally would have swept the whole thing this year.

This video is very catchy.

But be warned, if you follow it down the rabbit hole, Little Big get NSFW very quickly.  "My Dick is Big", for instance.

Considering that singing is one of the best ways to spread Covid-19 - this seems quite ill-timed.

Only America could take an International contest based on co-operation and make it all about itself.

I would probably watch some of these talent shows if not for the endless backstories.

As it is, nope, not one.

America will probably miss the entire point and try to get good acts instead of strange acts.

Hm. I found and watched that video. Very catchy. I wonder how long that song is going to be stuck in my head, and what are the chances I will accidentally sing it out loud at the wrong time?

Hey, Eurovision helped foster a sense of unity and camaraderie over a continent that barely two decades prior was exterminating everyone and blowing each other up.

Yeh you're right actually, bringing Americans together is not even in the realm of plausibility at this point

Eurovision doesn't have that.  They go through several acts back to back with long intermissiom breaks with some comedy and post game I terviews. There's a good chance America would add it though like Ninja Warrior.

Russia would have been my pick this year, but the overall favourite was definitely Iceland.

I liked America's Got Talent before it became a competition of sob stories with more time spent on the sob stories than the acts.

The sound of the female vocalists' voice makes me want to stab my own ear drums out.
