If this was for my favourite contests that I watched live or through live stream, then it wouldn’t be fair, because the first (and as of so far, only) contest I have ever watched on time was this year (2013). The previous two contests I couldn’t watch through live stream because a) it was AP season and I had to review for exams or b) I was at a Quiz Bowl tournament. In both cases, nobody knew about or cared for the contest (except for this one guy who couldn’t stand Jedward).
2010 is also pretty special for me because it was the year I discovered the contest and the reason I’m obsessed. And it started all the way from listening to Germans singing “Schland, O Schland” at the World Cup to Lena winning the contest to downloading all 39 entries of 2010.
If it was just for the music, then some of my favourite contests would be 2003, 2009, and 2012.
