To close our coverage of the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest, and to perhaps draw a (bright) line under our many thoughts on the whole drama of Sweden not qualifying for the final, we are launching a competition that is either quite amazing, or absolutely ridiculous, we haven’t decided yet. And how you decide which camp it falls into, depends on your views on Eurovision. But we’re hoping to attract the more hardcore fans of the great contest, as they will have more of an appreciation of what we think is a nice piece of Eurovision memorabilia, but what others might see as a bit ‘WTF’! One man’s trash is another man’s treasure, and all that. etc etc.
If you watched Sweden’s participation in semi final 2 of this year’s Eurovision, you’ll remember perhaps what was the highlight of said performance, and one of the highlights of the whole night – the sea of red glow sticks that were waved as Anna Bergendahl sang ‘This Is My Life’. It was a beautiful moment on screen, but of course we didn’t see it on tv at the time, as we were there in the actual arena audience, waving one of the glow sticks in the scene that was broadcast to over 100 million people worldwide. And that, ladies and gentleman, is what we’re giving away in this competition. The red glowstick that we were waving during Sweden’s performance at the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest!
If you look closely, you might be able to see it here;
If you should wish to own an object like this, just drop us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to tell us what you think Sweden needs to do to get into the Eurovision final next year. Is there a certain artist they should send? A certain type of song? Does Melodifestivalen need a complete overhaul? Or anything you’ve been thinking of in light of Thursday’s events. There is of course no right or wrong answer though. We’ll just pick whatever idea is our absolute favourite, publish it on here, and send you a piece of Eurovision history!
We’ll leave the competition open for a few weeks or so.
And here’s the individual glow stick in all its glory in the cold light of day;
