Eurovision 2020 All 41 Competing Acts

While the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 won’t be taking place, fans will still have the opportunity to enjoy the thrill of the Eurovision semi-finals. The EBU has announced it will hold the Eurovision Song Celebration 2020 — two online events to honour the competing acts of Eurovision 2020

The two Eurovision Song Celebration events will take place on Tuesday 12 May and Thursday 14 May — the dates originally intended for the semi-finals of Eurovision 2020. The shows will stream on the official Eurovision YouTube channel.

The semi-final allocations were drawn back in January — and those allocations will be kept for the shows. As well, the songs will be played in the producer-decided running order that had been intended for the now-cancelled live Eurovision shows. This running order will be revealed at a later date.

While the EBU has not specified details of the song performances, it is thought that they will use existing national final performances or music videos, rather than new “at home” performances.

As Eurovision 2020 has been cancelled, this event will be non-competitive and no vote will be held. The events are intended to “spotlight the songs” that would have been competing in the song contest this year.

The EBU says the Eurovision Song Celebration will complement the show Eurovision: Europe Shine a Light, which will screen on Saturday 16 May.

The show will include “Fan Recaps”

Eurovision fans are being given the opportunity to get involved with “Fan Recaps”. Instead of the classic Eurovision recap of the previously seen performances, this time fans will be given the opportunity to “sing, dance, jump and party along to your most-loved Eurovision songs of 2020.”

Fans are asked to perform along to the EBU’s recap video and submit their own videos by 5 May. See full entry details here.

I would definitely NOT start a show like this with a ballad, and second in the running order I still consider the start. I can’t understand why everyone would place a ballad right after the first performance. For me it breaks the rhythm so soon, and we should wait until at least third or fourth to make it a rest from the uptempo ones.

SF2 was a nightmare to sort through since in the first half, you have mostly radio-friendly pop songs (with one or two exceptions), while in the 2nd half, you have 2 fan favorites, 2 “crazier” songs, 5 ballads, 2 radio-friendly pop songs, and a partridge in a pear tree . ___ .

Your openers and closers for both semifinals are spot on. Since I love LAT, I would switch that one with Armenia.

The first half of SF1 was kinda hard due to the reason there is only one ballad (Slovenia) and mostly up-tempo songs

Arrivederci
Guest
Arrivederci

If we use these numbers with the tie breaker rule (since everyone technically has nil points) this would make Australia the winner by default

Arrivederci
Guest
Arrivederci

For example, in 2015, Austria and Germany both got nil points, however Germany still came last because it was performed later than Austria.

Denis
Guest

No, Germany came last because Austria was the host. Technical default.

I guess they will be put among the semi finalists just as if they were semi finalists too. What would be the point to have a running order for a non competitive show if they give us three more songs at the end that are qualified for a final that will never exist ?

Apologies but I must be totally stupid. Am I missing something here. They are running all the songs on their official YouTube channel. You can already watch them any time at your leisure. Surely they must be some extras like a presenter or commentary of some kind. I don’t understand why they are doing this.

Andy

I quite hope that EBU has learned a lesson from this about business continuity plans. Of course a pandemic of this scale is one-off hopefully but I am surprised that there was no plan b at all. Personally, going forward I would ask the countries to prepare videos of their song in a stage-type setting instead of videoclips. It probably costs the same money and then there is uniformity across all participants. In that way, even if the contest is cancelled, you can at least have a show which is easier to the eye rather than watching MTV in 2000… Read more »

They probably have a contingency plan for every situation except a modern-day pandemic.

Yes, such a ridicoulous decision to cancel Eurovision to fight such a silly pandemich that killed over 3 milion of people in the world!
What were they thinking?

I first said to myself : wait is their running order really based on the alphabetic order ?
Then I re-read this “Full running order will be revealed at a later date.”
I guess it’s morning glory !

To complement the show on Saturday.

Yes, but it should have been the replacement all along. Not that Light a Light show or whatever it’s called

Keep telling yourself that. Whatever makes you feel good..
I think we are more fans than you, the person who spams and trolls every person who aren¨t happy over the fact that we won’t get a contest of any kind,at all. Since that is the essence of the show and why we are fans to begin with. So ow much of a fan are you?

They don’t have a ready accounting firm to scrutinize votes from 41 countries.

Milo Epsilon

I’dd add to James and Ana’s reasons that juries couldn’t be in the same room. When you see we already have some problems (not to say suspicious voting) when they are, I could easily imagine how easily they could do what they want if they are seperated. Also, it would be problematic as they usually vote the night before, now with two seperate votes to add in a single night, including one for which you have to gather individual votes from 205 people from 41 countries (Of course you could ask juries to vote earlier, but what guarantees do you… Read more »
