Eurovision 2020 Cancellation 

On March 18, 2020, the European Broadcasting Union gave a press release in which they said that Eurovision 2020 would be cancelled. As was the case with many other public events, Eurovision was cancelled due to health concerns because of the COVID-19 epidemic. 

The Union stated that the contest is in the midst of talks about the contest taking place next year with the same participants. This would mirror the decision made by UEFA in regard to Euro 2020, which was also moved to 2021.

Eurovision: Europe Shine a Light

Instead of Eurovision 2020, the May 16 television slot will be taken up by an event called “Eurovision: Europe Shine a Light”. During this event, all of the 2020 songs will be played, but no winner will be chosen. 

Eurovision Betting Odds

Note: the odds below were relevant during the Eurovision 2019 contest.

The final will see 17 countries. These include the 10 finalists that proceeded thanks to the vote. Additionally, the Big 5 (UK, France, Spain, Italy and Germany. And finally, the host country (Israel) and Australia. Bookmaker 22Bet has shared the odds on the top 10 contenders:

  1. Netherlands 13/20
  2. Australia 5/1
  3. Sweden 12/1
  4. Switzerland 12/1

  6. Italy 15/1
  7. Azerbaijan 16/1
  8. Iceland 22/1
  9. France 30/1
  10. Norway 70/1

Australia’s Kate Miller-Heidke’s has surged from a 9th to 2nd place among the favorites. Even though Duncan Laurence of the Netherlands is largely in the lead, Kate’s earlier precedent can pose a challenge.

Other finalists are mostly performers that were predicted earlier. However, the contest did not go without some upsets. Armenia didn’t qualify for the final, while Albania unexpectedly came out on top. Check out all the performers of the Grand Final in a video below:
