The Eurovision Song Contest 2020 That Almost Was

The European Broadcasting Union has announced that because of concerns about the efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19, this year’s Eurovision Song Contest has been cancelled. It’s the cherry-shaped poop pellet on top of the crap cake that is 2020.

We’re going to keep writing our song reviews, though, for three reasons:

  1. These songs still exist as their respective countries’ national selections.
  2. We still have strong opinions about almost all of them.
  3. One of the ways we can ease stress during a time of uncertainty is to do things that we love, and we love to write about Eurovision.

We’re not going to speculate on what happens next, although we assume Rotterdam will be given the chance to host again next year if they want to. We just hope that each and every one of you stay safe and stay healthy.
