EUROVISION DANCE CONTEST

To quote Wikipedia:

"The Eurovision Dance Contest was an international dancing competition that was held for the first time in the United Kingdom on Saturday 1 September 2007.

The contest was inspired by the television show Strictly Come Dancing, a 2004 revival of Come Dancing in the United Kingdom, which is a massive hit in over 25 countries around the world. The contest was in addition to the Eurovision Song Contest. On 9 May 2007 the International Dance Sport Federation (IDSF) officially announced its association with the Eurovision Dance Contest. IDSF credits the contest to Richard Bunn of rbi network, Geneva, former EBU controller of sport, who convinced the EBU to create this TV programme."

The BBC was host broadcaster for the first two contests in 2007 and 2008. The 2009 competition was to have been held in Azerbaijan, but was cancelled due to a "serious lack of interest" in the contest. Currently there are no plans to ressurrect the Eurovision Dance Contest.
