While Eurovision’s schtick has always been that it’s so bad that it’s good, American music has a history of being more like good so it’s good.

A key factor will be how it maintains – or even tries to match – the campness of its European inspiration, but it should be interesting to see how seriously it’s taken by both the competitors and Snoop alike.
