“Wonderful, wonderful Copenhagen
Friendly old girl of a town
‘Neath her tavern light
On this merry night
Let us clink and drink one down

To wonderful, wonderful Copenhagen
Salty old queen of the sea
Once I sailed away
But I’m home today
Singing Copenhagen, wonderful, wonderful
Copenhagen for me

I sailed up the Skagerrak
And sailed down the Kattegat
Through the harbour and up to the quay
And there she stands waiting for me
With a welcome so warm and so gay

Wonderful, wonderful Copenhagen
Wonderful, wonderful Copenhagen
Friendly old girl of a town
‘Neath her tavern light
On this merry night
Let us clink and drink one down

To wonderful, wonderful Copenhagen
Salty old queen of the sea
Once I sailed away
But I’m home today
Singing Copenhagen, wonderful, wonderful
Copenhagen for me”

The Eurovision Song Contest (French: Concours Eurovision de la chanson), often shortened ESC, or Eurovision, is an annual song competition held among the member countries of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) since 1956.

Each member country submits a song to be performed on live television and radio and then casts votes for the other countries’ songs to determine the most popular song in the competition. The contest has been broadcast every year since its inauguration in 1956 and is one of the longest-running television programmes in the world. It is also one of the most watched non-sporting events in the world, with audience figures having been quoted in recent years as anything between 100 million and 600 million internationally. Eurovision has also been broadcast outside Europe to such places as Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, Egypt, India, Japan, Jordan, Mexico, New Zealand, the Philippines, Suriname, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, the United States, Uruguay and Venezuela although these countries do not compete. Since 2000, the contest has also been broadcast over the Internet, via the Eurovision website.

Winning the Eurovision Song Contest provides an opportunity for the winning artists to capitalise on the surrounding publicity and further their career. Artists whose international careers were directly launched into the spotlight following their participation at Eurovision include: Italian- Domenico Modugno, who came third with the song “Nel blu dipinto di blu” (Volare) (meaning to fly) in 1958, ABBA who won the contest for Sweden in 1974 with “Waterloo”, Céline Dion, who won for Switzerland in 1988 with the French language song “Ne partez pas sans moi (Don’t leave without me, the Spaniard Julio Iglesias, who has sold over 300 million records worldwide, and Bucks Fizz, who won in 1981 for the UK with “Making Your Mind Up“.

Britain’s Entry for the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest

Eurovision 2014: Who is the UK’s entry? Molly Smitten-Downes to represent Britain

Eurovision Song Contest 2014 Molly-Smitten-Downes-pa

Molly Smitten-Downes has been selected to represent the UK at the Eurovision song contest this year.

The singer-songwriter from Leicester, who goes by her first name “Molly”, was relatively unknown until she was scouted by the BBC to represent the UK.

The 27-year-old wrote her Eurovision entry “Children of the Universe” herself, and has since signed a record deal with Warner UK.

Meet the Eurovision 2014 contestants

Initial public reception suggests Molly could be Britain’s most popular Eurovision entry in years.

The UK will be crossing its fingers on Saturday 10 May that she does better than recent British Eurovision entries Bonnie Tyler (19th), Engelbert Humperdinck (25th), Blue (11th) and Josh Dubovie (25th).

She released an official video for her Eurovision entry …, which you can watch below:

    Believe it or not digital was first introduced as a kind of “upgrade” to its older cousin ‘ analog. If Grant could be defined (not that easy to do), it would sound something like this. Why don’t you bring a shaker or maracas to the next gig.
