Should The Big Five Be Disbanded? You Decide!

Eurovision s

Eurovision is a widely viewed international musical contest where some of the countries musical talents participate in a contest to determine who’s the best. It’s almost like the Olympics, but with music rather than various sports.

Of course something this widely popular and watched has it’s own line of controversies. But one of the big ones other there is something called the Big Five. Today we will be looking at the controversy and raising points for and against the disbanded or not.

Reasons Against Disbandment

First let’s take a look at what this rule actually entails as a lot of the arguments for that stem from this rule being in place. This rule is in place to bring five countries: UK, Spain, Italy, Germany, and France into the finals of this competition regardless of their standing overall in the competition.

On the surface it sounds completely unfair, however it’s important to note that Italy didn’t participate for 13 years before joining back on regularly every year. Furthermore the other four countries are the largest backers of Eurovision. Essentially without these countries involved, Eurovision wouldn’t be as lucrative, or as massive as it is now.

This rule is put in place as a sort of incentive in the end. For Italy, being part of the Big 5 is more of a “thank you for coming back” gift. After all, it would dampen anyones mood if this was the first time they joined the contest in a long time only to fall short and not participate in the contest fully. For the other four it’s due to the amount of money they put in. A lot of times you only need a small glimmer of winning as a good incentive to invest.

Another thing to keep in mind with this rule is since this rule has been in place there’s been only one winner from the Big 5 since the year 2000. As much as it’s a big advantage it’s also fair since the other performers still have good chances if not the same chance as the other competitors.

Reasons For Disbandment

Reasons for disbanding the Big 5 is also prominent as well and there are many good points for disbanding the Big 5. The first of which is looking at consumer engagement. For most users watching from outside the event they will more than likely be watching during the semis that are held. They wouldn’t care much about what led up to that. What’s also important to note is the Big 5’s musician of choice only performs during the finals. There’s certainly promotion done during the semis, but no live performances until the actual finals.

Because of this, a voter will more than likely be swayed to vote for a semi-final content who made it to the finals rather than someone who was already in the Big 5. This can explain why out of the years this rule is in place, only one instance has a Big 5 member actually won the contest.

Another thing to note is also the countries choice in band to send as well. Because the Big 5 are guaranteed a spot it means they can send anyone they like. In many instances the fans have noticed that the Big 5 tend to serve up bands that aren’t as great as the other countries participants. It’s fair to say that because of this particular status it’s led the Big 5 to get comfortable with sending bands only for exposure rather than putting a quality performance and winning.

Because of this fact it makes sense to disband as the Big 5 have no distinct advantage and use this rule as a means of sending lower quality performers. They also gimp themselves because the band doesn’t perform until the end of the week in the finals.

What Are Your Thoughts?

Each side has it’s own good cases to keep the Big 5 or to disband it, but let’s hear your thoughts below on the subject! What do you think they should do? Should they keep it? Disband it? Or maybe make some changes to the rule?
