Watch in sync. Tweet along. Vote for your hero, that’s what you must do.
Every Saturday at 8pm (UK time / 9pm CEST) for the foreseeable future we’re picking a classic Eurovision Song Contest and inviting others to watch it in sync with us while tweeting along using #EurovisionAgain. Because Eurovision is best watched together.
To add to the anticipation we don’t reveal the contest year until 7.45pm (UK time) – 15 minutes before the show is due to start. We’ll share the show link on our Twitter feed, so look out for it – and as of April, the official Eurovision YouTube channel will livestream the year we have picked. Neat!
We’ll also share a link to a printable scorecard and sometimes iconic contestants will cameo on our timeline.
But that’s not the end of it…
Once all acts have performed we publish a voting site where you can award points to nations as if you were a jury (again, check Twitter at the right time). The votes are counted and verified by our EurovisionAgain Executive Supervisor before we reveal the full scoreboard and, of course, our winner.
This week we are raising money for Mermaids, Terrence Higgins Trust and Stonewall. Please consider giving if you can.
We’ve already watched Malmö 2013 and have voted on Athens 2006, Moscow 2009, Vienna 2015, Dublin 1997, Helsinki 2007, Stockholm 2016, Birmingham 1998 and Brighton 1974. You can find info and the all important #EurovisionAgain twitter poll vote results here.
We script the tweet-along and only ask that you share your pix, comments, scores and screen grabs for the rest of us to enjoy… we also sometimes try and raise money for charity… oh, and one more thing… stay the right side of kind xx
