Another year has gone by, a new one is about to begin. Wherever you are, and whatever your plans are, on behalf of the entire Eurovision Song Contest family, we would like to wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas! To celebrate, many of the participants of the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest have contributed to an exclusive Christmas video, just for you!
For me the Eurovision Song Contest is a powerful symbol and I would say, even a weapon in that fight against the dark forces that want to drag us back to the middle ages again. It is more relevant than ever. I feel that during those hours, those bright, uplifting hours when the Eurovision final is on the air, that’s one of the few times nowadays when Europe gets a sense of what it’s like to be unified. To live in harmony.
