Oh my, this is really sad, a bunch of Asian countries have decided to form an Asian version of the Eurovision contest.
They’re going to call it Asiavision, and they say that “the universal language of music will help bring people closer together”. OK, I understand that, peace and people liking each other is very important, but surely they can come up with a better model than Eurovision!
The last Eurovision was in my opinion a complete disaster, most of the acts were a joke, and the few who went there to perform and get some recognition were dropped out fairly quickly with the way the voting was done.
I really enjoy Asian music, some Japanese pop can be really quircky and interesting, and I adore Indian music, so I hope they plan to broadcast the series in Europe, or if they don’t, maybe put it online so I can watch the acts.
The countries that have signed up for it so far are; China, India, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Japan, Pakistan, the Philippines, Cambodia, South Korea, Taiwan, Laos, Macau, Hong Kong, and Singapore.
