Test Your Knowledge of The Eurovision Song Contest

What do you know about The Eurovision Song Contest?

While this competition has become something of an annual institution across Europe, it causes quizzical looks if mentioned to someone from outside of the continent.

Each year - now in May - nations who are part of the European Broadcasting Union put forth a song in the hope of persuading millions of television viewers and numerous national juries to vote as the winner of Europe's biggest song competition: The Eurovision Song Contest. The winner receives a nice, shiny trophy and the hope that their winning track will sell by the millions across Europe.

Over the years, many of the songs and their singers have hit the big time, but by the same token, just as many have fallen by the wayside. International success has been a rare thing, although both ABBA and Celine Dion began their global success following wins at the competition.

So, why not see if you are able to get douze points trying this Eurovision Song Contest quiz.

      I only got two right, but I'm a Yank. The only reason I know about Eurovision is the Father Ted epsiode "A Song For Europe". Now, thanks to this lens, I'll have "My Lovely Horse" stuck in my head all day :)
