Eurovision Song Contest Final Today

For the past 56 years Europe has held a song contest. This year there is 42 countries competing for the title of best song. Such groups as Abba got their start by winning the contest for Sweden with Olivia Newton John finishing second that same year. Celine Dion won representing Switzerland in 1988. You can watch the show beginning at 3PM EDT on http://www.eurovision.tv/ . It should be great and will take a few hours to watch but hey if it is raining outside it's perfect.

Here is who we are cheering for in our house. It is a beautiful song representing Iceland this year. The link is just below. Enjoy!
