Some notes on the contest from Wikipedia:

On 18 November 2020, the EBU revealed that, as a measure to guarantee that all participants can take part in the contest, every national broadcaster will create a 'live-on-tape' recording prior to the contest which can be used if a participant cannot travel to Rotterdam, or subjected to quarantine on arrival. The recordings will take place in a studio setting, in real time (as it would be at the contest) without any edits to the vocals or any part of the performance itself after the recording. A set of production guidelines was also revealed to ensure fairness and the integrity of the recordings.

On 18 June 2020, the EBU announced that pre-recorded backing vocals will be allowed for one year. The use of recorded backing vocals will be entirely optional. Each delegation can choose to use backing singers, whether on or off stage. A combination of live and recorded backing vocals will also be allowed. All lead vocals performing the melody of the song, including an eventual use of a so-called lead dub, shall still be live on or off stage in the arena.

I've always had a little party. It's an excuse to get drunk and act like the big old gay that I am.

Also can we take a moment for the best Eurovision song that's never been topped;

I mean, yes, Verka is an absolute legend! Every Eurofan should dance to Lasha Tumbai atleast once a year!

My favourite of all time is Spain's 2009. So robbed as Spain's broadcaster at the time showed some sports over the Semi-Finals and Spain got to the wrong side with the juries (2nd last in the Finals). Love Soraya so much!



From this year, I really like our (Finland) song, finally we send some good stuff.
Moldova's Natalia Gordienko however is stuck in my head and the song and the music video are goddamn catchy...



And the background dancer on her far left (from our pov) is so goddamn yummy...
