It's the talent show that has more viewers than the Super Bowl and Oscars® combined. The Eurovision Song Contest is an annual, three-day event in which Europe's fastest-rising stars compete to become the next international music sensation. In its 50 years, the show has given artists like ABBA, Julio Iglesias, Riverdance and Celine Dion their big breaks.

This May, contestants from 42 European countries will meet in Moscow to battle it out. One of the most buzzworthy acts is Germany's Alex Swings, Oscar Sings—a producer/singer duo with a mesmerizing act, complete with backup dancers.

Before they head off to Eurovision rehearsals, they perform "Miss Kiss Bang Bang" via satellite from Hamburg, Germany. Producer Alex Christensen says winning the competition would mean the world to them. "This would be the biggest moment in our life," he says.
