Eurovision Song Contest

It's time again for the very popular Eurovision Song Contest, an annual event I grew up with in England that is virtually unknown in the US. Held this year in Athens the competition is a big deal in Europe and really rather fun as each country submits a song and performer to the contest. This year has at least 2 a cappella entries, Estonian singing sensations Cosmos with "I Hear Your Heart" and Spain's very successful female group Las Ketchup with an a cappella version of Remedios Amaya's 1983 classic ¿Quién maneja mi barca?. Read an interview with Cosmos here.
