Will the UK be unceremoniously turfed out of our beloved Eurovision Song Contest once Article 50 does whatever it’s supposed to do? Who knows. So better soak up this year’s preposterathon in case it’s our last.

With Russia involved in a ‘will they, won’t they perform’ politically charged furore and Spain surrounded by accusations of rigging to get their pretty-boy entry the gig, Eurovision once again has tongues wagging and fingers getting ready to invade social media.

In usual ‘No-shit Sherlock’ style, Lucie Jones, the UK’s entry, has dire odds of winning (everyone hates us) – although not as bad as the host Ukraine who clearly threw in a stinker just in case they won and have to host it again next year.

Romania have their yodelling but it seems if you want to get ahead, get a dancing gorilla which is what Italy’s entry threw into the pot, making them this year’s favourite to win at the final on May 13th.

So as Twitter gets ready to go into its annual Eurovision meltdown, Universal music present the “Eurovision Song Contest 2017” album. The album features all entrants to the competition – whether they make the final or not (full tracklisting below). Digitally released on April 21st with physical 2CD set released on April 28th. A DVD and Blu-Ray will be released on June 23. Available to pre-order now at: https://Eurovision.lnk.to/2017PR

200 million viewers make the Eurovision Song Contest the world’s biggest TV Music show of the year. But it is much more than just a show, and millions of people listen to the music all through the year (are they mad?).

Now the serious bit….
The 62nd Eurovision Song Contest in 2017 will be hosted in Ukraine in the city of Kyiv. Kyiv fought off strong competition from Odesa and Dnipro to host the Eurovision Song Contest following the Ukranian entry Jamala’s win in Sweden last year with her song 1944
Ukraine has a proud history when it comes to the Eurovision Family of Events. Kyiv last hosted the Eurovision Song Contest in 2005 after Ruslana won with Wild Dances the year before. In addition to this, Ukraine also played host to the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in both 2009 and 2013.

Europe continues to face challenging times and that is also true of the world of broadcasting in general. The way in which people watch television and engage with broadcasting is changing. People rarely make a date with the TV set, instead, many prefer to watch on catch-up, on tablets and smartphones.

Yet, the Eurovision Song Contest remains an event in which the live moment matters. Each year, for one night only, dozens of countries join together, and through a shared love of music, they set a date to watch the Eurovision Song Contest live. The competition embraces variety each year as it travels to different host countries. In the spirit of this tradition, which is now enjoying its seventh decade as an entertainment format, all are invited to embrace the event and celebrate its diversity.

Celebrate Diversity is the central message for this year’s event and is complimented by a creative logo design based around a traditional Ukrainian bead necklace known as Namysto. More than just a piece of jewellery, Namysto is a protective amulet and a symbol of beauty and health. It is made up of many different beads, each with its own design and celebrates both diversity and individuality.
