We have no details yet on which acts will be sent to the 2020 contest. Most countries decide on their performers using national selection competitions. Click here for more information on how different nation’s choose their entrants.
The “Big Five” – the UK, Germany, France, Italy and Spain – are all expected to send acts and all have guaranteed spots in the final, thanks to the large financial contributions they make to the European Broadcasting Union. As the host country, The Netherlands will also have a free pass to the final.
When does the UK decide on their Eurovision 2020 act?
Since 2016, the UK has selected its acts on Eurovision: You Decide which uses a public vote to narrow down a selection of entrants. The format is fronted by Mel Giedroyc and traditionally takes place in late January or early February.
In 2019, Michael Rice was chosen by UK viewers but his entry, Bigger Than Us, finished in last place with 16 points.
Who will perform at the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest?
2019 brought us a controversial half-time performance from Madonna. No details yet on who will grace the stage in 2020, but it’s likely that 2019 winner Laurence will be involved in some capacity, potentially belting out a tune during the semi-finals.
