Yes, Eurovision 2020 is not working out as planned, and some things change. But some things will remain, such as Juke Box Jury. After all, we started last week, so we’d better keep on going.

The Eurovision Song Contest 2020 Has Been Cancelled

The Eurovision Song Contest 2020 Has Been Cancelled

In its press release, the EBU goes into detail around the cancellation of the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest:

It is with deep regret that we have to announce the cancellation of the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 in Rotterdam.

Over the past few weeks we have explored many alternative options to allow the Eurovision Song Contest to go ahead.

However the uncertainty created by the spread of COVID-19 throughout Europe – and the restrictions put in place by the governments of the participating broadcasters and the Dutch authorities – means the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) has taken the difficult decision that it is impossible to continue with the live event as planned.

There are a number of questions resulting from the cancellation. Not all of them can be answered immediately, but the team at Eurovision.tv has started an FAQ, which you can read here. It talks about the alternatives that were considered for staging the Song Contest in 2020, what happens to the songs selected for this year’s Contest, and what happens to the tickets purchased.

These are unprecedented times in the world, and the fight against COVID-19 is affecting society at every level. Although the Eurovision Song Contest may be cancelled, its spirt of co-operation and togetherness are more relevant than ever.

And it’s okay to grieve. You’re not alone, we’re in this together.
