Eurovision 2021 will be held in Rotterdam, but with new acts and new songs. All artists from this year will be invited back; but due to the rules, all current songs will no longer be eligible.

MOD EDIT: This is according to unconfirmed news reports - please await updates from the OFFICIAL news channels

I'm not seeing any source for this other than some random Twitter account claiming that it's going to be announced tomorrow. The ESC Twitter account just posted that they'll have 'more information shortly'.

Obvz it wouldn't really be surprising if this is the case but jumping the gun a little bit I think ~~

edt: apparently it was announced on Israeli TV so maybe it is real but it seems weird that they'd get that news before everyone else ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I really can't see how they'd be able to run it now, and at least this way Netherlands will still get to host a proper contest next year.

Very sad if true. Be interesting to see if the favourites from this year come up with better or worse songs, backing The Mamas if they can write something incredible in a year. You also wonder if Melfest would just become a Mamas selection show, for example, or if they’d run it like normal but without the prize of going to Eurovision.

I wish they’d just run Eurovision as a sent in live performance video contest, we could still vote at home as audiences as normal, and juries could assess remotely too.

I'm not believing anything until it's posted on Eurovision.tv. Either the EBU decided before everyone went home yesterday and they could've made an official announcement then, or a final decision hasn't been made. And with a couple of weeks until construction on the stage would in theory need to start, I think they'd still be trying to exhaust all possible options at this point.

It doesn't make sense to me either that due to the 'rules', none of the songs selected this year would be eligible next year? We're living in unprecedented times, surely the rule book is out the window laugh.gif

Postponing is, for most, the preferred option as I’m sure it is for The EBU, delegates etc. But to have everyone available again for a large chunk of time later in the summer and to then get everything ready for May 2021 in a shorter time period is an almighty ask. I also envisage the remote live performances being problematic for less wealthy countries who simply cannot compete with the likes of Sweden, Germany etc.

I really hope they postpone rather than cancel fully. Would be a weird year to have no Eurovision at all sad.gif

My preferred option from a selfish point of view is to just perform from their own countries, so we still have a contest this year. There is literally nothing to look forward to so selfishly I'll be really upset if we get nothing at all from this year sad.gif

Idk though, I really don't want a year withou Eurovision but I also wouldn't mind if they just postponed it, even if it was until next year. It seems unfair on Netherlands to not have a proper contest to host, and unfair on the artists who worked to win National Finals or sent in songs to be internally selected but just don't get a chance to show them off. To just pause and let everyone have their chance later I think is a good idea too.

This seems like a realistic option, I wouldn't be surprised if that is the announcement, I'd be very sad though if there was no way to find out a result of some description to this contest, the songs make up one of the better years in recent memory and you have to imagine not every act will be able to make it to 2021.
