I thought I would blog about how I sit at home and work, live and sleep caused by Corona but as you can see from the headline Corona also impact other things. For a majority of you all Eurovision is more or less unknown or something you might watch if you have nothing else to do on the nights of semifinals and the final. So this news is not a big thing and make perfect sense.
For me who watch the Eurovision, more or less, as the meaning to live this is HUGE…
I was 100% sure EBU would postpone the contest until August or September, or change the place of venue from a huge arena to a smaller one and broadcast without an audience, but to cancel never hit my mind really.
So this is a chock, something I don’t like at all and not only for me and all the Eurovision fans but also for the performers who now won’t be able to have their 3 minutes of fame. And I hope most of them will have a chance to return 2021 even if the song must change. I guess for all countries with internal selections this won’t be a problem. Both Spain and Ukraine have already announced that their artists will be in Eurovision 2021 (if they want).
But it is another thing for countries with a selection, I will get back to this in my blog posts the upcoming days.
In the meantime I will use the evenings, during this lock down in France, to watch old contests and actually use this time under Corona lock down to update my Eurovision Section on this website. With nothing else to do as long as we have to stay home it’s a golden opportunity.
But for now… I’m frankly pissed over the decision to cancel it completely. Now we just hope that Azerbaijan and Slovenia will release their songs on iTunes so at least all songs will be up for purchase. I think the rest already is there if only not all revamped version.
So, Corona, you finally knocked me down.
