It is with shock today, that some readers of The Spoof found out that the Eurovision Song Contest continues to thrill and excite audiences around the world.
Many ex-pats believed it had died a death in the '80's only to find that it has indeed continued to be a much anticipated annual event. Admittedly, viewers are few and far between, mostly family and friends of the contestants.
The reason no one had been watching The Eurovision Song Contest over the past 25 years or so was that viewers had taken en masse, to fanatically following shows such as AGT, BGT and The X Factor.
Such shows have launched the careers of many, whereas the ESC has launched not even a helium filled balloon.
So, if you are feeling nostalgic for your 'youth', tune in to the Eurovision Song Contest or watch on Youtube or your Palm Pilot.
