🎉🎉 Good morning Europe, and good evening Australia!
Today is September 1st 2020, so you know what that means? That’s right - the year is one month closer to being over!! Oh, and the Eurovision season has officially begun! Any song released between now and the submission deadline in March is eligible for this year’s contest!
The compositions (lyrics and music) must not have been commercially released before 1 September 20192020 (the Release Date). In case the composition has been made available to the public, for example, but not limited to, on online video platforms, social networks or (semi-) publicly accessible databanks and/or performed publicly, for example but not limited to during concerts, the Participating Broadcaster must inform the ESC Executive Supervisor, who shall have authority to evaluate whether the composition is eligible for participation in the Event. In particular, the ESC Executive Supervisor shall assess whether such disclosure prior to the Release Date is likely to give to the composition an advantage in the Event vis-à-vis the other compositions. The ESC Executive Supervisor shall authorise or deny participation of a composition which may have been available to the public as described above, subject to the prior approval of the Reference Group.
Even though the season has just begun, we’ve been getting news about the 2021 contest consistently since the cancellation of the 2020 contest, so let’s recap (strap in, this will be a long one).
The Show Itself:
The three shows will take place on:
18th May, Semi-Final One
20th May, Semi-Final Two
22nd May, Grand Final
The host city is once again Rotterdam, and the stage design from 2020 will be carried over for this year so get ready for some fancy LEDs and holographic screens! At present it is unconfirmed as to whether Chantal Janzen, Edsilia Rombley, and Jan Smit will host the 2021 contest. https://eurovision.tv/story/dates-for-eurovision-2021-announced
Unfortunately, as we head into the 2021 contest we say farewell to the iconic executive supervisor Jon Ola Sand. Martin Österdahl has taken the position and this year’s contest will be the first of many under his watch! https://eurovision.tv/story/jon-ola-goodbye
