2017 Eurovision Song Contest

Tonight is the final of the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest, held this year in Ukraine’s capital city, Kyiv.  There were 42 participating countries, with 26 making it through to the Grand Final, including both The Netherlands and Australia.

Since the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest, Australia has somehow become an “honorary” European country.  This year Australia is competing with a song called “Don’t Come Easy” by Isaiah.

The Netherlands has a three-sister team called OG3NE with a song called Lights and Shadows:

The contest can be cheesy but always a lot of fun to watch.  I had hoped to join The Hague International Network to watch the final, with representatives from the various embassies based in The Hague, this would have been a great party!  However it’s also my 12th wedding anniversary today so we have plans.
