Would this work?

As eager Eurovision fans I would say the answer to that question would initially be a resounding "no".

Give it some thought though, a contest every two years would have immense build up and would make it a lot more financially viable for certain countries to enter (Andorra, Bosnia & Herzegovina etc). It would make it much more of an event that's not to be missed, maybe making it more popular? It could also (hopefully) encourage countries to pick better songs, making the contest a lot more competitive overall.

i think the EBU will most definetly be looking for new ways to handle the contest going beyond the 60th anniversary, but would this change be a welcome adaptment or cause the contest to lose popularity?

Would love to hear what you think of this suggestion.

Of course not - if it aint broke, dont fix it ;)

This idea would never be considered anyway, the contest generates too much money.

I'll join you!!

While I'm all for Eurovision having more participants (would love to see the Microstates return, along with the Balkan nations) I think in terms of format, it's fine. As someone said earlier, if it ain't broke...

... besides, I'd become unbearable if Eurovision was once every two years... :lol:

Actually ::mt 'no' is simply 'LE' ^^

I see the point of this topic but my answer is also, 'no' :)

Seems like we're kind of unanimous about this, huh?
