I don't know why, but it's true that historically the Eurovision Song Contest is sort of associated with the community. It must be said that many LGBT fans went to the site to attend this great show. So, expect to see the rainbow flags waved in the crowd and that's not all. After the rainbow stamps, PostNord, the company that manages the postboxes in the city repainted a few in the colors of the Pride flag on the main axes of the city and around the arena that will host the Eurovision to welcome LGBT fans.

So Saturday, and as every year, all European countries and some of their neighbors will come together to enjoy this show, in addition to China, to Australia, for a second year, and to the United States as for the first time, Eurovision will be aired on Logo.

According to journalists who were able to attend rehearsals and from what we could see during the semi-finals, they would not have zany candidates or feathered costumes or other choices that always made us laugh a lot. However, serious candidates will go before you: Austria will surely surprise you with its song entirely in French, Spain still offer us hit with the song "Feel Good", Australia's chances too, a small preference for the French candidate, Amir, I love his song "J'ai Cherché (I've Been Looking For)" Youhouhou ouou.

So who will win the Eurovision Song Contest 2016? The bets are open!
