Except each country is represented by one act that they already have chosen, and the prize is not a recording contract but instead the prestige of hosting the contest next year... And also it is one night not many weeks...
If you want something like American Idol you could search its original 'Pop Idol' in the UK or the current 'X Factor' in the UK, and of course all countries have _____ Idol now so you could search them... :P

Yeah the costumes were cool but I saw no point in them... still dont to be honest... unless of course their butt-ugly

Don't forget Music Idol!

Music Idol tryouts are hilarious, I remember one time, a Japanese person sang a song in a different language (not Japanese), and she said it was english... Here is the link:

Oh it's a hell of a lot more fun. Watching all those countries vote... far better than * Idol / XFactor.

Indeed, and the fact that each country cannot vote for itself adds a lot to the competition However as of late there is much doubt thrown over the system with 'Eastern Bloc voting' where it is thought that countries vote due to their relation to other countries not the song they delivered... This led to the implementation of a new rule where public voted counted towards 50% of the countries overall marks and the other 50% was given to music professionals in each country who cast their votes in the dress rehearsals...

Did you know that the country that has never won but has been in it for many years is Portugal, it has never won since it joined in the 1960s... And to be honest, U quite liked their song this year... It was nice and free and the lyrics were very nice hippies ftw?

Gotta love hippies. Speaking of which, my parents just forced my into yet another haircut. Grrr.
I do like the semi-pro voting now, it's broken up the Eastern Bloc (mostly, not completely).

Well it wasnt just the Eastern Bloc, it happened everywhere really... Balkan countries, Scandinavian, Western Europe... However you may have a point, but then again... one year is not enough to tell... but it is safe to say that it may have had an effect on Norways votes? biggest win ever...

I think it is worst now as before, till now always one of the best songs won (and only that matter, cuz only that will be remembered) but this time, Norway.... i dont say it was bad but actually rather good (i would take it to the 3rd place), but on other hand what about Malta, it was the best song from this year and last year but ended at the bottom in final ???? that is mafia =). And about judges the "profesionals" who do 50% of voting, they suck because they have their own interest and also they are giving the best point (12) to the best song that they think it is (and there is not for quality of the song but rather what they like more) and other they just distribute to the naighbours or to the countries that are political related and if they run out of ideas they just give some points to some other good songs hey like.

That is my point that this new sistem is very bad (maybe just worked for Britain =P),so Malta should won.

You're missing the entire point, Kire. The reverse is true, it's better than it used to be. The eastern bloc no longer always put Russia or a similar former-Soviet country at the top. It's not perfect, but it's better.
