How to say EUROVISION SONG CONTEST in 50 languages with Europe in a Day!

Anyone familiar with Europe in a Day will know I’m a huge fan of the Eurovision Song Contest and will always include Eurovision trivia for wherever I’m writing about. So I decided it was high time to take a look at how 50 different languages from across Europe and beyond refer to the continent’s favourite TV show!

If you don’t know what Eurovision is, then you’re really missing out and need to educate yourself! Luckily, I can also help with that HERE 😉

NOTE: Some of the names on this list are not as widely used as they once were, especially as many countries nowadays use the English name for the contest “Eurovision” – but where’s the fun it that?! In a few instances, finding the name of the contest in the native language was near impossible, so in those instances I have put “Eurovision” with “song contest” or an equivalent phrase.
