5. Sing along to the music
One of my favorite moments of the entire Eurovision experience happened in the restroom at Euroclub.1 A short line had formed outside the stalls and the DJ had put on “Loin d’Ici” from last year’s Contest. There were probably four or five guys in the restroom at this point, all quietly singing along to themselves.
I have no idea where these folks were from, but there is something profoundly awesome about folks from all over the world converging in a restroom in Kyiv singing along to the same song. This feeling also happened while waiting for the first semi-final to start, with folks of all backgrounds and experiences sharing this common language.
It’s not too early to start planning for next year’s Eurovision Song Contest. Hope to see you there!
