TEA Tuesday takes a page from Eurovision

#TEAdigital programming took a melodious turn on May 19, 2020 with the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) Europe & Middle East Division TEA Tuesday European Song Contest.

The format for this digital mixer was inspired by the Eurovision Song Contest - a longstanding, annual event organized by the European Broadcasting Union - which sadly had to cancel its 2020 gathering in Rotterdam due to COVID-19.

The mixer was hosted by TEA EME Division Board member Danielle Tanton of Viacom, and Alex ("Conchita") Tyrrell of Electrosonic. Each participant adopted a country to represent, and in that role - and possibly also in costume - watched and voted on a selection of 10 top Eurovision songs from the past four decades.

The votes were tallied and rankings shared and celebrated in the group. 

Participants hailed from LA to Beijing and many European places in between. The winning song was Russia's Little Big with Uno.
