Eurovision Song Contest: Annual song competition held among the member countries of the European Broadcasting Union
The Eurovision Song Contest is an annual international song competition, held every year by the Eurovision broadcasting organisation since 1956, with participants representing primarily European countries. Each participating country submits an original song to be performed on live television and radio, then casts votes for the other countries' songs to determine the winner. At least 50 countries are eligible to compete as of 2019; since 2015, Australia has been allowed as a contestant.
