Televish? :P It was genuine question. Admittedly have not given it much thought but thought it was funny.

edit: mind that over here the (two) institutions are separate. I had problem with it before when I called BBC just television. Now I remember.

Eligibility to participate is not determined by geographic inclusion within the continent of Europe, despite the "Euro" in "Eurovision" – nor does it have any relation to the European Union. Several countries geographically outside the boundaries of Europe have competed: Israel and Cyprus in Western Asia (Cyprus is a member of the Council of Europe and a member state of the European Union), since 1973 and 1981 respectively; Australia in the Australian continent, in 2015[29] and Morocco, in North Africa, in the 1980 competition alone. In addition, several transcontinental countries with only part of their territory in Europe have competed: Turkey, since 1975; Russia, since 1994; Armenia, since 2006; Georgia, since 2007; and Azerbaijan, which made its first appearance in the 2008 edition.[30]


Which isn't to say that I don't think folk are not justified in thinking "surely this should be Europe only?"

I mean, the Americans get away with referring to the "World Series" despite it being anything but that.

Why dont the Americans take part? They could organise it like the World Football Cup.

And have countries bribing officials to stage it. :lol:

Oh good god, has this shite come around again already?
She battled through in every kind of tribulation,
She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.
Oh, my my! Oh my, she flies!

I wish that Graham Norton would take the piss a bit more, like Wogan used to do. I have a feeling that his hands have been tied a bit due to the pc brigade.
