Today’s Eurovision ‘news‘ features the apparently exciting news that this year’s contest – under the tagline ‘Celebrate Diversity’ will be presented by three men, all of them white, and at least one of them delivering his excited piece to camera with an adopted American accent.
It’s a shame that Eurovision has failed to capitalise on its otherwise inspiring call to action. Last year the combined viewing figures for all three Eurovision shows amounted 204 million. That’s a considerable platform – a powerful opportunity – for saying something bold.
How far we’ve come.
