On 10 of May in Italy began the international music contest called Eurovision.
I know a lot of people who watch this show with interest, cheer for their country, vote. To be honest, I’ve never watched Eurovision, but I always know what’s happening there from my friends.
Last years the event was for fun and relaxation, people laughed and talked about it in a friendly manner. But it seems like this year everybody divided into two camps:
1.Those who believe that Eurovision has remained an honest and independent event, the main purpose of which is to show the diversity of Europe’s musical talents
2.Those who believe that Eurovision has become a political event, in which some are given the right to express their position through shows and songs, while others are limited in this, not even giving the right to perform.
Naturally, there are so many people and we will never come to a common decision, but I would very much like to know what do you think about Eurovision and the context of this show. Is it just music or something more? And isn’t music always more than just a music?
