Aha, I love Eurovision :') A night full of cheesy euro-pop that everybody in the house watches can never be bad. The UK never win though D:.

I'd be quite interested in watching this, just to see what it's like (: It'll probably have to be on Youtube though.


Yeah. UK should send Leona Lewis! (j/k) I'm expecting Japan and Korea to take advantage of the raves their artists have been getting; so more bubblegum pop. A lot cheesier than Eurovision I guess.

Leona Lewis wouldn't be too bad actually, the contestant we've put through this year is pretty poor ;D.
Yeah, it will be a lot cheesier (something never before thought possible ;D), because there is no chance of them sending somebody that isn't insanely popular throughout Asia - DBSK would mean an instant win for Korea.

They should make it a rule to sing in their native language. Once most of the participants started with english the whole eurovision songcontest went down.

No but it is part of the pacific, Hence the ASIA-PACIFIC
3 billion people, man thats huge,soon asians are going to take over the world



LOL. The 3 billion is largely due to the inclusion of China (1 billion I guess) and India.


Yea,no doubt, both those countries are coming up real fast and soon they are going to be huge powerhouse. just the inclusion of one of those two countries in any event would bring a significant crowd.

As per the tentative rules, they can sing in any language. Singing in English would be an advantage because it's a universal language. Almost everyone in Asia tries to learn English.

DBSK might be a contender. However, Asia is really diverse; I changed my mind :), bubblegum pop wouldn't be a hit, it's the power ballad! (Eurovision is geared towards that as well as per the latest winner). Asians just love ballads, the last Asian Idol( a flop ) is a testament to this observation.

Can they really call it "Our Sound" if it is sung in english? I don't think so.

As long as they're the one who composed and sang the song, it would be 'our sound'.

I'm currently watching the 2nd semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest lol. (You're all aware that you can watch a live stream of the show directly from the official website no matter where in the world you are??)

I'm really excited for the prospects of the Asia-Pacific Song Contest. It should be a lot of fun to watch! Of course I'm really excited to see who will represent Korea and Japan! Eh and being half Filipino I guess I'm curious as to who the Philippines will send as well haha.

Oh, I recently had read about the rules and they are slightly different from Eurovision! Voters will get to vote twice! And one of their two votes can go to their own country! I really don't understand the point of this because isn't it assumed that EVERYONE will give one of their votes to their own country? So wouldn't countries with larger populations automatically be at an advantage? Hmmm...

I'm especially excited for the APSC because broadcaster ABS-CBN will be broadcasting the programme in the Philippines and my aunt has ABS-CBN! I'll get to watch the contest on her big screen tv! Does anyone know if the Philippines has HD programming? I feel like their HD is limited? It would be even sweeter to see it in high-def as well!

Does anyone know if the participating countries have made any announcement of the contest at all? The national selections start in July! Only a month and a half away!

Woohoo so excited!
