Asiavision contest to begin next year
Starting from next year Asiavision Song Contest will be also held in accordance to the format of the Eurovision Song Contest.
The blueprint of the competition was unveiled at the General Assembly of the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union in New Delhi.
It is supposed to be launched at next year’s General Assembly in Seoul, South Korea. Kenny Kihyung Bae, a senior producer of the South Korean broadcaster KBS will be responsible for the project. Bae is a Eurovision fan and is planning to attend the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest in Baku in order to “watch and learn”.
He also said that the winner in Baku might be invited to perform at the Asian event. The name for the show has not been found yet, but Bae thinks “Asiavision Song Contest” may be a possible designation.
