The History of Eurovision

The Eurovision Song Contest is an annual international singing competition held among member countries of the European Broadcasting Union since 1956. The contest was initially created to promote unity and peace in the aftermath of World War II through music. It began with just seven participating countries but has since grown to include over 40 participants with Australia and Israel also taking part. The UK have been victorious in the competition five times, with acts including Lulu (1969), Bucks Fizz (1981), and Katrina and The Waves (1997).

Eurovision is renowned for its flamboyant performances, unique stage shows and, at times, controversial songs. It has become an essential part of European pop culture, launching the careers of many international artists such as ABBA, Céline Dion and Conchita Wurst. Following Sam Ryder’s acclaimed performance in Eurovision 2022 which won the jury’s vote and gained the UK second place behind Ukraine, the 2023 event hosted in Liverpool promises to be celebration of music, culture, unity and diversity that truly showcases the best of what the competition has to offer.
