We. Are. So. Excited. BBC’s recent announcement that they will be hosting a ballroom dance competition “in the spirit of the Eurovision song contest” got our booties shaking with anticipation. Here at EuroCheapo global HQ, we’re huge fans of Eurovision and staffer Alex Robertson Textor has written previous posts covering the event and—dare we say—is a true Eurovision expert. (In fact, he has added several “Eurovision” playlists to the office iPod.)

The Eurovision dance competition will showcase couples from 13 countries each performing two dances, though the second dance must have a “national flavor.” Channelling Simon Cowell, viewers will decide the winner and BBC One controller Peter Fincham promises “an evening full of stars and sequins, and glitz and glamour.” Bring. It. On.
