The 65-year old mainstay of the European cultural calendar, the Eurovision Song Contest, heads across the Atlantic this week. A new show will pit all 50 states, five US territories and Washington DC against each other in a spinoff of dazzling proportions. We chat to the show’s producers about the challenges of Americanising the format, and Robert Bound is joined by Emily Yahr and Fernando Augusto Pacheco to discuss what might be in store.
