OREANDA-NEWS. The organizers of the international song contest Eurovision, which was canceled in 2020 due to the coronavirus epidemic, will hold a special show on May 16 with the participation of artists who were supposed to perform at this year’s contest, as well as contestants of past years. A special show entitled “Eurovision: Europe Shine a Light” will honour all 41 songs that were announced for viewing in 2020 in an uncompetitive format.

This is reported on the competition’s website. “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 EBU Members in other countries, to air this show in the spirit of unity and togetherness,” the Contest Executive Supervisor Jon Ola Sand announced.
