The Eurovision Song Contest is the world’s largest live music event. The European Broadcasting Union (EBU), the world’s leading association of public service media (PSM), organises it yearly.
The competition, in which participating Members of the EBU send a new original song to represent their nation, has taken place every year since 1956 except in 2020.
