In three months' time, Vienna, Austria will be hosting visitors and performers for the 2015 Eurovision contest. Have you seen the videos for all of this year's participants? Some countries are still determining their finalists. Australia will be participating in Eurovision!

Next week, the Eurovision Song Contest will be on! Have you chosen your favourite performers to follow?

In preparation for the festivities, Vienna has made changes to its pedestrian traffic signals to show couples rather than a gender neutral individual. http://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/eurovision-song-contest-host-vienna-launches-gay-themed-traffic-lights-n357606

Sure would like to see some of the competitions in a restaurant or bar in the US-more of a switch from the usual sports tv blaring from the screens.

The Eurovision semi-final competition is live now. There are two viewing options-through the song contest website after installing a program or viewing through the Youtube channel. http://www.eurovision.tv/page/webtv?program=132903

The Youtube channel just requires you to find it and it's streaming live! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TGVo3Bdm6Ag

Good singing wishes for all of the competitors! Let's all learn some new songs.

Sweden won the competition this year-guess the country is hosting the 2016 one! Even my local television station made mention of the contest coming down to votes for Sweden or Russia in the final voting in this morning's segment. Pity that Ontario TV stations did not actually show parts of the grand final competition!

May 9 is the start of the Eurovision competition live from Kiev! Can't wait to see the songs performed by the artists. Think there are some North American channels carrying the show live so not all of us need to rely on the web.
“Logo is proud to return as the exclusive U.S. broadcast home for the global phenomenon that is the Eurovision Song Contest,” said Pamela Post, SVP of Programming for Logo. “This cultural gem has taken worldwide audiences by storm and we’re thankful to once again partner with EBU so our viewers can watch the Grand Final live.”

The website mentions how geoblocking is in use in countries that cannot access the Live Feed of the
May 9 semi-final. At least there was acknowledgement of fans in those lands that are interested
in the coverage. The live feeds on the Eurovision channel on Youtube are also geoblocked. However,
it is possible to see the daily update videos, the official music video for each country's song and some
other useful coverage.

Canadians won't be able to see Logo TV's channel on YouTube for the May 13 final event.

Montenegro's song failed to continue past the first semi-final and fans are upset.
