Will Ferrell: 'Eurovision Song Contest is the craziest thing I've ever seen'

Will Ferrell: 'Eurovision Song Contest is the craziest thing I've ever seen'”

Eurovision Song Contest 2021 will take place in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

With the coronavirus pandemic stopping mass events and worldwide travel, 2020 saw the Eurovision Song Contest cancelled for the first time in the competition's 64-year history. The programme began the BBC's replacement Eurovision coverage and was followed by Eurovision: Europe Shine A Light, organised to honour all the 41 songs which would have made up this year's contest, in a non-competitive format. The EBU has confirmed today that Rotterdam will host the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest next year, after the untimely cancellation of the competition this year due to the COVID-19 global pandemic.

We are extremely happy that we can now move forward.

"As we look back over 64 years of Eurovision, I am sure that for many of you, Sir Terry was a highlight over the years".

Will Ferrell was "intoxicated" by the Eurovision Song Contest when family in Sweden suggested he watch it.

Developments surrounding COVID-19 will clearly affect planning in the coming year for a complicated global broadcast with many worldwide stakeholders. In this ever-changing and challenging environment, the EBU will, therefore, work with its Dutch Members and the City of Rotterdam to ensure the continuity of the event in a number of different scenarios.

"It still remains one of the most genuinely joyous events of the TV year and it's so disarmingly European", he said in a recorded video message. "We will do everything in our power to arrange a very special Contest", said NPO Chairman, Shula Rijxman.

Their Eurovision entry is titled "Volcano Man" and pretty much nails the necessary hamminess of the songs usually seen in the competition.

18 of the artists deliberate to carry out in 2020 have confirmed that they are going to characterize their nation once more in 2021, although it's unclear if United Kingdom entry James Newman will probably be again.

Although the plan is for the Eurovision Song Contest to go forward in 2021, developments surrounding COVID-19 and evolving social distancing pointers are anticipated to influence planning and probably the ultimate type the occasion will take.
