The Esquarivision Song Contest, often shortened to ESC or Esquarivision, is an annual song competition held primarily among the countries of Esquarium since 1970. The contest's idea and format was inspired by the Lyonese show Lejonbhicss, which now functions as a selection process for Lyonsland's entry to the competition.
Each participating country sends a song to be performed live on radio and television, usually in front of a stadium or an arena. Following all of the performances, the juries and more recently televoters of each participating country vote for their favourite entry. The winning country also reserves the right to host the following year's competition, however nations are not obligated to do so. The show is held annually, usually in April or May, and is accompanied by the Junior Esquarivision Song Contest in November. It is one of the most watched television programmes in Esquarium.
