Saturday May 14th @ 3pm Hibernia Bar NYC and our new location the Winslow NYC will be Airing the Eurovision Song Contest live.
We hope to have an amazing party, we will have our now famous balloon drop, we will have a prize for the best scorecard and also the random flag picking pool. Here at Hibernia and now the Winslow we are proud to be one of the very few to celebrate the ESC in NYC. It’s glam, it’s eurotrash and we love it, come join the party. Please remember that we have communal tables for everyone to enjoy and get involved with the show so unfortunately we cannot reserve or let people hog long tables. Check out our new sister space at http://www.thewinslownyc.com
The Eurovision Song Contest 2016 is the 61st edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. It is currently taking place in the Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden, following Sweden’s victory at the 2015 contest in Vienna with the song “Heroes“, performed by Måns Zelmerlöw. This is the third time the contest has taken place in Stockholm, after 1975 and 2000, the latter also being held at the Globe. The contest consists of two semi-finals on 10 and 12 May and the final on 14 May 2016. The three live shows are hosted by Zelmerlöw and Petra Mede.
Forty-two countries participate in the contest. Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia and Ukraine will return after absences from recent contests, while Australia will also return after debuting as a special guest in 2015. Portugal withdrew, largely due to their national broadcaster’s insufficient promotion of their music-based media, while Romania had originally planned to participate, but was forced to withdraw due to repeated non-payment of debts by their national broadcaster to the European Broadcasting Union (EBU). The contest will also be the first to implement a new voting system since 1975, with each country now awarding two sets of points: one from their professional jury and another from televoting.
Twenty-six countries will again compete in the final. The Czech Republic qualified for the final for the first time at the fifth attempt. Bosnia and Herzegovina and Greece both failed to progress out of the semi-finals for the first time ever, the latter being absent from the final for the first time since 2000.
The Eurovision Song Contest is one of the longest running television shows in the world. It was on the 24th of May, 1956, that Europe saw the first ever Eurovision Song Contest. After 60 runnings, the contest is one of the most typical European traditions and without doubt, Europe’s favorite TV show! More than 1,400 songs already have taken part in the Eurovision Song Contest. In 2006, the song of Ireland’s Brian Kennedy was number 1,000. In 2003, Cyprus delivered the 900th song for the Eurovision Song Contest. In 1999, Lydia’s No Quiero Escuchar was the 800th song.
Number 100 was T’en Va Pas, performed by Esther OFARIM for Switzerland, De Troubadour performed by Lenny Kuhr was the 200th song in 1969. Malta brought number 300 in 1975; Singing This Song. He, He M’sieurs Dames was the 400th song performed on the Eurovision Song Contest, this time by France in 1980.
Luxembourg had the honour of presenting the 500th song in 1986, L’amour De Ma Vie, Portugal the 600th song in 1990 with Ha Sempre Slguem and in 1994, the Polish representative performed song number 700, To Nie Ja. The 1,100th song has been performed in 2008. After more than six decades featuring some 1,400 songs, the contest has become a modern classic, strongly embedded into Europe’s collective mind. “Did you know that not only stars like ABBA, Celine Dion, Cliff Richard and Julio Iglesias took part, but also dance act Riverdance thanks its fame to the Eurovision Song Contest?”.
