THE NETHERLANDS – It was supposed to be a typical Eurovision night but instead, we had a replacement show due to the pandemic outbreak. The show was a live broadcast with… almost all of its content… not live at all!
Anyway, there were some important highlights the organisers added to the show which featured as highlights for all the fans.
We have to admit that we moan because we have to moan, under the depression of not having a contest and not a winner. But EBU officially promised us to return to normal Eurovision contests next year. It seems that the rare TV appearance of ABBA’s Björn Ulvaeus was the secret of the event.
But now that you have all highlights of the event in video, which was your favourite moment of the event? Watch the videos and have a say in our poll below by choosing three of your favourite moments.
