Eurovision Song Contest has been held since 1956 and attracts the attention of about 600 million viewers from all over the world. Eurovision is held among the countries-members of the European Broadcasting Union and broadcasted live around the world and even in those countries that don’t participate in the competition.
Songs are performed in two semi-finals and in the final. The final automatically includes 6 countries: the country-winner of previous year and 5 countries of the “Big Five” – the founders of Eurovision: United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, France and Spain.
The competition is held in the country-winner of the previous year, and more often – in its capital. Eurovision 2016 will be held in Stockholm, as Sweden has taken 1st place in the contest of 2015.
