Every year around 40 countries take part to the Eurovision Song contest. Out of these, only few bring on the stage a song in a language different than English, the reason being that singing in English is indeed an advantage: you reach a wider audience, and as a result the countries daring to showcase their beautiful culture and language are disadvantaged.

"United in diversity" is the motto of the EU, and I'd like to extend it to this competition: providing the songs' translation on screen during the performance would encourage the countries to sing in their national language(s), and it would thus partially solve this problem.

This issue was already addressed by the EBU (European Broadcasting Union) in the past with the "language rule", which forced the countries to sing in a national language. This is maybe too extreme, while subtitles would really help the situation.

Another incentive would be to give a moderate point prize to those singing in a national language, with a view to encouraging the showcasing of the different cultural identities and to make up for the advantage that those singing in English get.
