This week, the Eurovision Song Contest will be hosted for the 70th time. Every year families all around Europe (and in later times, Australia) sit in front of the TV to witness a music program where nations compete for the attention of Europe.
The competition has changed drastically over the last 70 years. For the longest time, nations could only sing in their own language on stage (all up until the early 70's). As most European nations tried to appeal to English speaking countries, the unlikely Ireland started an unprecedented winning streak, most notably in the early 90's when they won 3 years in a row, only to lose to Norway´s legendary Nocturne song and win the competition one year later in Oslo.
In late 90's, everything changed with the entrance of Iceland´s supernova Páll Óskar with his seductive hit Minn Hinnsti Dans (My final dance), backed by four women dressed in latex playing suggestively on a sofa behind him. In one swoop: Eurovision Song Contest became Eurovision Performance Contest, followed by winners such as Israel in 1998 (with the song Diva), Ukraine in 2004 (with their song Wild Dances) and Finland in 2006 (with their heavy metal song Hard Rock Hallelujah).
Performative music content now dominates the Eurovision song contest. Wild dances, colors, fireworks, surprises. It's the ultimate family fun television program.
The next step in bringing the Eurovision fun from the screen and straight into the living room is to allow viewers at home to participate in the crazy spectacle that Eurovision is, it is performative content after all.
It just happens to be that Overtune allows you to create music on the stop by arranging beats and then record a voice video. You can also find Eurovision beats you can play with to perfect a meme-tastic Eurovision video!
The official Eurovision winner of 2022 is you
