Congratulations to Azerbaijan, who won the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest on Saturday. You can read about the press conference with the winning act by clicking here.
And well done to all the other participants too, it was a good show.
So, you are wondering why we have covered the Eurovision Song Contest this year and think that it has nothing to do with the European Union (and yes, you’re right, Azerbaijan has not joined the EU overnight) read the article “Sunday music -Eurovision Pidgin English” on the blog for the Hungarian EC Presidency, as well as this article about European identity on the website of Deutsche Welle.
We are already looking forward to next year!
