A nostalgic and resplendent official celebration of the Eurovision Song Contest. The fun and the feuds, the high points, the dismal lows, the scandals, the most outrageous outfits, the innovators, and the copy cats, this glorious book captures the singular flavor of Eurovision, charting its journey from the first competition in 1956—just seven entrants, broadcast from a tiny venue in Switzerland with a studio audience of 200—to the international extravaganza watched by millions of viewers that it has become today. It's a completely unique event in modern pop music, with its own agenda entirely, that has spawned almost as many anti-heroes as it has stars.
