Hvert år stemmer millioner af indbyggere i Europa og de omkringliggende lande via telefon på deres yndlingssange i Eurovision Song Contest (eller det europæiske Melodi Grand Prix). European Broadcast Union har afholdt den direkte sangkonkurrence siden 1956. Eurovision er kendt for kitschede optrædener og politisk farvede stemmer, men er stadig grunden til en enorm national stolthed og spænding, ikke mindst for de vindende lande.

I 2012 vil konkurrencen for første gang blive afholdt i Baku, Aserbajdsjan, takket være landets sejr i Tyskland i 2011. Dette vil helt sikkert sætte fokus på korruption, menneskerettigheder og ytringsfrihed i landet. Aktivister i den olierige republik refererer allerede til det, de kalder ‘Eurovision-effekten'. Aserbajdsjans fortsatte konflikt med Armenien om Nagorno-Karabakh vil også være i fokus.

Hvordan vil den interne politiske udvikling og regionale spændinger vise sig i Eurovisionen 2012 i Aserbajdsjan? Følg Global Voices’ særlige dækning det næste år, og find ud af det.

Every year, millions of citizens in Europe and surrounding countries vote over the phone for their favorite songs in the Eurovision Song Contest. The European Broadcast Union has held the live music competition since 1956. It inspires famously kitsch performances and politically-inspired voting but still triggers enormous national pride and excitement, not least for the winning countries.

In 2012, the competition will be held in Baku, Azerbaijan for the first time, thanks to its 2011 win in Germany. This will inevitably cast a spotlight on corruption, human rights and free speech in the country, with activists in the oil-rich republic already referring to what they are calling the ‘Eurovision Effect'. Azerbaijan's ongoing conflict with Armenia over Nagorno Karabakah will also be in focus.

Just how will internal political developments and regional tensions play out in Eurovision 2012: Azerbaijan? Follow Global Voices’ special coverage over the coming year to find out.
