UPDATED 9/18 `12:24 PM ET with more info
The European Broadcast Union made it official earlier today – no matter what happens, or what kind of circumstances they may have to maneuver, Eurovision Song Contest 2021 WILL GO ON! YAY!
Methinks the earful they got about the cancellation last year has spurred them into motion. Preliminary info was released during the “Eurovision: Shine A Light” substitute special last May, but today’s video announcement makes it official. As the video below shows, they are going ahead, with one of four possible scenarios – Full Show, Socially Distant Show, Travel-restricted show, or a full virtual show. But either way, ESC 21 WILL GO ON!
