  1. Please EBU don’t let associate members join! You’ll just ruin the contest and it’s tradition. Its called EUROvision there are a few countries not even in Europe competing which is bad enough but please not more. If they allow them to join I’m finished with eurovision 🙁 syria,south korea, Japan etc in eurovision? NO THANKS! oh my god I’m freaking out

  2. JUST Kazakhstan, please 🙂 I would love to see Kazakhstan as Kazakhstan is part of Europe (a small part) 😀 The EBU has to create an Euro-Asian contest with the ABU, which would be amazing! 🙂

  3. I have a suggestion: Australia should be eligible to take part since they’ve broadcast the countest for nearly 35 years and the interest is huge. Eurovision is already a global contest; Canada, the US, Argentina and China are just a few examples of countries broadcasting the event. Why not let them take part in a non-competitive way? Each of the broadcasters may send an artist to let him/her promote his/her music for the rest of Europe and the world. They may perform as an interval. There is proof that “Can’t Stop The Feeling” was highly promoted to others via Eurovision; it stayed at number 1 in the Swedish charts for weeks.

    So to make a long history short, so to say; Let all associate member stations take part, but as a type of interval act, sending an artist to let him/her promote his/her music. 😀

    1. You know what? I actually kinda like the idea of global stars being the interval act at Eurovision. This should happen every year. I was thinking that Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, Britney Spears, Carly Rae Jepsen, Justin Bieber, or Nicki Minaj could be the interval act in Kiev. 🙂

  4. only Kazakhstan should be able to participate as a normal european country. if other countries want to participate they participate in only one year. for exemple in 2017 Canada participates, in 2018 New Zealand and so on. It would be cool to have a (different) guest country every year, they would be already in the final as Australia 2015, to bring some music from other places. But don’t make eurovision a global contest, if the EBU wants to make a worldvision create a new contest and leave eurovision as it is now.

  5. I think the EBU will make a zone for the associate members that are allowed to compete. I’m assuming countries like Kazakhstan who have an interest in the contest, will be in this zone. 😀

  6. How about this idea?

    1. European Song Contest (remove Australia, keep Israel and add Liechtenstein)
    2. Asian Song Contest (- Israel )
    3. Americas Song Contest (+ Oceania)
    4. African Song Contest

    Top 5 (or 6) of all four contests (+ winner of previous year) compete in World Song Contest

  7. The only good thing that would come of this would be in the United States if we were to take part the contest would have to air on CBS, ABC or NBC for us to be eligible. As long as Logo TV is our broadcaster we can’t enter because Logo TV isn’t an associate member.
