✿ Eurovision: Why I disagree with it. ✿


So, today the Eurovision song contest is happening. My mum loves it and watches it every year, but I've always found it pretty disgusting.

I'll start with the positives of the whole contest. I understand that the competition helps to bring people of different cultures together and helps to spread the music of different people, I suppose, even though a lot of the songs get forgotten in a matter of days.

Right, so, I basically believe that the money that it takes to host/stage the whole Eurovision song contest should be going to much better things. For example, the money could be used to help Greece get through it's current money problems, or to help people in Africa etc.

It disgusts me that money, that's pretty hard to get nowadays, is being wasted on a bunch of people singing. Bearing in mind the people that come on the show are forgotten about in a couple of days, is it really worth it? Is it worth wasting that much money that could be going to such better places?

I know that the opinion of one teenager on the internet probably won't change much, but I just wanted to get my opinion out there.

Comment and let me know how you feel about it :-)


  1. The neighbour voting, despite acts being shit, really irritates me. Then again, we have a washed up old man! x

    1. Yeah, it's stupid. What annoys me really is that nobody thinks about where the money that it costs to phone up to vote goes to.. x
