The magical number of VSC 100 has finally been reached. Over time, the United States have been the host of 11 editions, and the host-cities were New York, Las Vegas, Chicago, Salt Lake City, Albuquerque, Boston, Denver, Pheonix, Atlanta and now Los Angeles for the second time after VSC36.
Los Angeles is the second-largest city in the United States after New York City and the most populous city in California. Situated in Southern California, Los Angeles is known for its mediterranean climate, ethnic diversity, sprawling metropolis, and as a major center of the American entertainment industry.
Nicknamed the "City of Angels", Los Angeles is a global city with a diverse economy in entertainment, culture, media, fashion, science, sports, technology, education, medicine and research. It has been ranked sixth in the Global Cities Index and 9th Global Economic Power Index.
California is the most populous state in the United States.
Geographically located in the western part of the United States, California is bordered by the other United States states of Oregon to the north, Nevada to the east, and Arizona to the southeast.
California shares an international border with the Mexican state of Baja California to the south and the Pacific Ocean is on the state's western coastline.
The state capital is Sacramento, which is located in the northern part of the state. A majority of California's cities are located in either the San Francisco Bay Area or the Sacramento metropolitan area in Northern California; or the Los Angeles area, the Riverside-San Bernardino-Inland Empire, or the San Diego metropolitan area in Southern California.
California is regarded as a global trendsetter in both popular culture and politics, and is the birthplace of the film industry, the hippie counterculture, the Internet, and the personal computer.
ABC, the host broadcasting television of this edition, promises a lot of surprises: from an outstanding and jaw-dropping show in the Dolby Theater to a series of Interval Acts and performances that will celebrate the 100th Anniversary.
The two (or more) official hosts that will present the Live Listening that will be held on Sunday, 30th October are yet to be revealed!
Good luck to everyone and may the best have the honour to aquire the title of "100th victor of Veritons Song Contest"
