Walking home from dinner in Istanbul, I noticed the Eurovision Song Contest Finals being broadcast on a cafe TV and zipped back to the hotel to watch. From what I can tell, Eurovision is a American Idol/Pop Idol combined with good-natured European nationalism. I have some vague recollection of years past when the musical acts were either terrible, super avant garde or kitschy traditional music. Always one to watch European countries compete, I followed eagerly, only to realize that I really don’t like European pop music!
