The Eurovision Song Contest Map


It has become a bit of a tradition on Google Maps Mania that each year, when the Eurovision Song Contest rears its ugly head, Soren of microformats.dk creates a Google Map of videos of the entries.

This year Soren tells me his ears have been saved from the aural torture of endless Europop thanks to Danmark Radio's Kort og Videor. That's right some brave soul at the Danish national broadcasting station has volunteered to create this year's video map.

Using the map you can select any of the countries that have reached the final of the competition and watch a video of that country's song.

Now my patriotism may be colouring my judgement but this year I think the UK has a good chance of winning with Engelbert Humperdinck's entry 'Love Will Set You Free'. I haven't heard such an awful song for many a year. Therefore it must be the odds on favourite to win this year's Eurovision Song Contest.
