Organizers of the Eurovision international song contest that had to be cancelled in 2020 due to the coronavirus spread will hold a special show on May 16 featuring musicians and singers who were supposed to be performing at this year’s edition as well as participants from previous years, the contest’s official website says.
Axar.az reports citing Russian media.
"Sadly there will be no Eurovision Song Contest this year. Instead, we intend to unite Europe on 16 May with a unique prime-time TV programme. We are encouraging all broadcasters who were due to take part in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, and European Broadcasting Union — TASS Members in other countries, to air this show in the spirit of unity and togetherness," the website quoted Jon Ola Sand, Executive Supervisor of the Contest, as saying.
The show is expected to run for two hours. The full list of singers and broadcasters will be revealed in the coming weeks. It is already announced that Eurovision’s YouTube channel will live stream the show.
