This was asked elsewhere in the forum.

Java is the main programming language for applications built to the SDK. C is also used, but only for firmware development.

Languages that can run on the JVM without building their own bytecodes can also work on Android. However, you need to factor in the size of those languages' runtimes when choosing a language.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
