A forth Eurovision format – Talent Contest


The European Broadcasting Union seems to be up to a fresh idea. The Union has come up with a new Eurovision format: a Talent Contest. The ETC will feature participants displaying unusual abilities. The purpose is to present a non-verbal trick, so that people all over Europe can understand you. The EBU are also opening up the application procedure by introducing online application.

And a quick reminder: another fresh show, hosted by the BBC, took off this autumn. The Eurovision Dance Contest enjoyed great interest and is expected to grow in the years to come. The first edition featured dancing couples from 16 countries across Europe – Austria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Lithuania, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the Ukraine and, of course, the UK. And the winners came from Finland – Jussi Väänänen & Katja Koukkula, who, with their fiery Rumba got the biggest vote from the audiences in all the participating countries.

The Eurovision Talent Contest will be the forth pan-European format produced by the EBU along with the Eurovision Song Contest, the Junior Eurovision Song Contest and the recently launched Eurovision Dance Contest.
