SONG CONTEST – the Almost Eurovision Experience has been translated into 22 languages including Czech, Danish, Dutch, Estonian, Finnish, Flemish, French, German, Hebrew, Hungarian, Icelandic, Spanish, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese and Swedish. All done in Google translation and just for the hell of it. We believe in being prepared for the rush that is coming.
Minsk is the capital of Belarus, where Song Contest is being held. It translates to White Russia and they still have wild Bison roaming in the countryside. Yup.
We estimate there will be approximately 24.7 cast and crew directly involved in every performance, but if you include the audience (who strictly speaking will be involved in the voting bit) then this will make Song Contest one of the biggest shows in the world as we know it. And that does not include staff from front of house, side of house, on top of house, under the house, house painters, plumbers, electricians, that guy with the dodgy cherry picker who does the venue signage, ticket sales, wardrobe staff, set contractors, maintenance, office staff, advertising, publicity, mechanics, stockbrokers, hairdressers, florists, roadside workers or nurses.
Song Contest has won a Grammar Award for constant use of “none is.”
