American version of Eurovision has been announced


The Eurovision bosses have recently announced their plans to introduce the American spin-off of the European song contest which was broadcast in the USA for the first time ever this year. Eurovision Executive Supervisor Jon Ola Sand, who runs the annual contest, said: “When it comes to the US we also have a deal there with the broadcaster Viacom to broadcast Eurovision in the US.We also want to see if it’s possible to create an American version of the Eurovision Song Contest”. However he insisted that they are yet to find the common conclusion of whether the Eurovision concept may work somewhere else but Europe and even if yes, it will take time and won’t happen immediately.Mr Ola Sand said: “We have already launched an initiative in Asia, and this is done in conjunction with our Australian partner, SBS, who participates in the ESC. We are working with them to stage a similar concept to Eurovision in Asia, essentially to have a Eurovision Asia.”He hinted that Eurovision was building bridges in “several markets in that region”, including New Zealand and China.
