For the first time in its history, the Eurovision Song Contest was cancelled because of bloody Rona! Now we all live in a world where we social distance and wear face masks for the foreseeable. Nobody knows exactly what the future holds in terms of the virus but we do know that Eurovision has been confirmed again for the 18, 20, and 22 May 2021 in Rotters.
Shine A Light
I think it was a bit of a chuffin shambles that it couldn’t have taken place in a more socially distanced format but at least we had Europe Shine A Light to get us through the night. There were too many stupid rules and regulations in place as always but we can breathe a sigh of relief that the EBU have made some rule changes for 2021. They weren’t prepared for a global emergency, and now it’s time to adapt the rules as to meet the times.
From 2021, live backing vocals will be banned, which will mainly help teams to travel with smaller delegations, and help the Host Broadcaster be less put out by heavy technical burdens.
What’s your thoughts on the rule changes? Get in my comments and let’s have a natter!
