The Democratic National Conference was choosing it's presidential candidate which meant, one by one, a representative from each state was connected by video link to read out their votes for each of the two contenders, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.

Sound familiar? Plenty of viewers in Europe thought so – so much so, in fact, that #Eurovision began to trend on Twitter...

Watching the states' delegates offer their votes at the #DNC is like watching the voting portion of #Eurovision. (I prefer Eurovision.)

Some thought the DNC had more still to learn from Eurovision...

...and maybe vice versa...

Can we get Stephanie Rawlings-Blake to present the voting in Kiev? #Eurovision #DNC #DemsInPhilly

In the end, Hillary won, of course – but at least at least Bernie Sanders didn't get nil points...
