Tonight is the night! Unfortunately not the night of the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest. However, there will be a show called Europe Shine A Light. It will start at 21:00 CET and you can watch it in every participating country of the Eurovision Song Contest.
You will see all the participants to be, and parts of all the songs that were supposed to be in the show. Europe Shine A Light will be hosted by Edsilia Rombley, Chantal Janzen and Jan Smit, the hosts of the ESC 2020. The place were it all happens will not be Rotterdam but Hilversum.
Apart from the participating artists you will meet Duncan Laurence, who has released a new song. You will of course see Johnny Logan, mr. Eurovision himself. You will see Ilse Delange (Common Linnets). Måns Zelmerlöw will sing his “Heroes” as a tribute to all the people, working in healthcare, to do the best they can in the Corona Crisis.
And there is a rumour…. in Dutch tv show RTL Boulevard, it is mentioned that ABBA will, somehow, be part of the show!! How? We don’t know. However, we think there are more than enough reasons to watch the show.
