Dance Song Wins Eurovision Song Contest
The Trance/Dance hit 'Euphoria' by singer Loreen (S) has won the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 this weekend at the finals in Baku, Azerbaijan. This proves once again the rising dominance of Electronic Dance Music on the world stage. Most but not all European countries that are part of the European Broadcast Union enter an artist into the playoff style competition. At one time singers had to sing in their native language but as you can tell, Loreen was singing in English, not Swedish. Past winners include Celine Dion (CH) and ABBA (S).
