One of the world’s most popular singing competitions is headed to the United States of America.
The team behind the Eurovision Song Contest has announced “The American Song Contest,” scheduled to take place during the 2021 holiday season.
The Eurovision Song Contest is an annual competition that pits singers from participating countries against each other. To be eligible, contestants must be from a member country of the European Broadcasting Union.
It has helped launch the careers of artists including previous winners Celine Dion and ABBA. Eurovision is so popular worldwide that there have been viewing parties held across the globe.
The 2020 Eurovision contest was cancelled in May due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In June, Netflix released the comedic film, “Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga,” starring Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams as a pair of pop singers chasing their dream to compete in the contest.
