Eurovision is underway in Sweden. It may seem like an unlikely place for Asian pop, but actually Eurovision contestants are often fans of Asian pop!

 

Dami Im

This Korean-Australian singer is no stranger to the world of Asian pop. With her favourite K-pop star being BoA, Dami's also a BIGBANG VIP!

When asked what she thought about a possible Eurovision Asia , Dami said that it would be "Epic!"

"There are so many genres within that, that could participate: Bollywood, K-Pop … J-Pop is different again too.” If she could nominate a hot contender, it was a no-brainer for Dami. 

“Hmmm…. Well I’m a big fan of Big Bang. I mean, if they entered, it’d be game over for everyone else.”  

Here is Dami covering Taeyang!

Conchita Wurst!

Although these Swedish acts didn't quite make it to represent their nation, they were definitely representing Asian pop in their regional finals!
