We feel so sorry for the acts lined up to appear on Eurovision 2020. They were ready to perform on the biggest stage in the world, and ended up staying at home in their pyjamas with a takeaway and broken dreams.
Eurovision fans are an excellent bunch though, and we won’t let these singers be forgotten.
All 41 acts will get a moment in the spotlight on Saturday night as participating countries will broadcast Eurovision: Europe Shine a Light, a special non-competitive tribute to this year’s event.
Of course, now that we have semi-finals in the run up to the big event, not all 41 songs would have made it to Saturday night. But they are all getting recognised as part of this event.
