Eurovision 2021 to be held in Dutch city of Rotterdam

Eurovision 2021 to be held in Dutch city of Rotterdam”

Norton told viewers: "I know this isn't real Eurovision, but this is song nine, and it is a tradition that we raise a glass on song nine for the late Sir Terry Wogan". Rotterdam will host the contest, as it was planned in 2020. Instead of a traditional contest, the organisers of the event opted for a broadcast that celebrated the artists that were due to perform this year, meaning that no victor was selected - except in Germany.

Evening all, and welcome to this year's Eurovision liveblog!

The EBU and the Dutch trio of broadcasters responsible for the hosting of the cancelled 2020 contest have tonight confirmed that Rotterdam will host Eurovision 2021, with an emotional video closing the Europe Shine a Light show tonight. This was confirmed during the Eurovision: Europe Shine A Light.

From humble beginnings in 1956, the contest has become a vector of camp and kitsch with nearly 200 million viewers tuning in for the finale.

In this Saturday, May 16, 2020 image provided by EBU/NPO/NOS/AVROTROS, Winner of the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest Duncan Laurence performs during the Eurovision's Europe Shine A Light remote television show, in Hilversum, Netherlands. The competition is held every year since 1956, and is one of the most popular non-sporting events in the world with an audience of 600 million viewers. "It additionally means that you can escape and be joyful". Eurovision features live musical numbers from each participating country - more than 50 in recent editions - reaching beyond Europe to Israel and Australia. "But we hope this show will comfort you in some small way, knowing that it will be back next year", he said.
