    In Asia obviously, like Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia.

    To participate in Eurovision you need to be a member of The European Broadcasting Union and to have broadcasted the contest in the previous years.

    Wikipedia wrote:The European Broadcasting Union (EBU; French: Union européenne de radio-télévision (UER)) is an alliance of public service media entities, established on the 12 February 1950. As of 2014, the organisation comprises 72 Active Members in 56 countries,[2] and 37 Associate Members from a further 22 countries.

    Wikipedia wrote:Eurovision has also been broadcast outside Europe to such places as Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Brunei, Canada, China, Colombia, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Japan, Jordan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, South Africa, Suriname, Taiwan, Thailand, the United States, Uruguay, Venezuela and Vietnam, although these countries do not compete. However, Australia has been invited to compete as a guest country in 2015 for the 60 years of Eurovision celebration.

    It's not a ranking is the performing order so tomorrow Israeli singer is going to be the third artist to go on stage.

    MOSCOW, RUSSIA – Moscow’s Patriarch Cyrill wished Russia to loose the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest in order to avoid an “invasion” of bearded singers in his country next year, targeting Conchita Wurst, the winner of the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest.

    Polina Gagarina who’s representing Russia this year is already a hot favourite to win which means that Russia will be hosting the event next year. The Russian Patriarch suggests that the nation needs to have its own competition to promote the Russian culture to the world! Continue reading.
