Americans Are Confused AF Over Eurovision And Europeans Aren't Helping

What a beautiful annual tradition.

If you somehow missed it, tonight the 63rd Eurovision song contest is taking place in Lisbon.

BBC

An annual tradition where all of Europe comes together to celebrate terrible, terrible music.

But for America, the sudden flood of Europeans taking to Twitter to share opinions about music, pyrotechnics and glitter was more than a little confusing.
