The Urthvision Songfestival, commonly known as Urthvision or abbreviated as USF, is an international song competition organized by the Urthvision Songfestival Broadcaster (UVSF).
The competition requires each participating country to submit an original song that will be performed live on television and radio, and transmitted to national broadcasters via the public broadcaster that joined the competition. The competing countries will then cast their votes to determine the winner of the competition.
Origins and history
The Urthvision Songfestival finds its origine in the national Blueacian songcontest ''Liet'' (Song), in Blueacia the contest is known as "Liet Ynternasjonaal" (International Song). Liet is a yearly event since 1956, after some rule changes and Liet losing interest with the people the organizers allowed foreign nations to join the national competition to ensure a filled roster. More and more nations joined and sterted winning Liet, at a point the organizers called for a change of the rules again. Then the international broadcasters (mostly from Aurora) came together and started the international competition we know now as the Urthvision Songfestival. It had it's first edition in November 2017 with 13 nations joining this edition and it had it's first edition in Blueacia.
