Seeking justice for Je t’adore? Looking to avenge Verona? Or perhaps you simply want Andorra to be more than Anonymous? To mark the end of Eurovision Again 2020 and to celebrate the start of national final season, we’re giving YOU the opportunity to right those wrongs!

On Saturday 19 December we’ll be streaming a Eurovision Again Semi-Final Special on our official YouTube channel and you get to choose the 26 competing songs and vote for a winner!

How will it work?

Throughout November on Instagram Stories we’ll be asking you to let us know your favourite song from every country that has failed to qualify for the Grand Final more than once since the Eurovision Semi-Finals were introduced in 2004.

We’ll also be asking 12 (douze!) sites and podcasts from the Eurovision fan community to select their 10 favourite non-qualifiers.

The 26 most popular songs will be revealed LIVE in a specially curated running order on our Eurovision Again Semi-Final special at 21.00 CET on Saturday 19 December.

Our friends at #EurovisionAgain will be running a poll on Twitter, allowing you to shower your forgotten favourites with the love, attention and points they deserve.

Open up to new favourites

Rob Holley, the journalist behind Eurovision Again, said: “the loveliest thing about Eurovision Again is how it has created new space in the fandom for brilliant acts like MFÖ (Turkey 1985 and 1988), Paul Oscar (Iceland 1997) and Anne-Karine Strøm (Norway 1973, 1974 and 1976) to bask in a level of appreciation they might have missed out on originally. This Semi-Final Special makes that space even bigger and I can’t wait to see which old friends we welcome back with open arms.”

The only way to make sure your favourite isn’t forgotten is to check out our Instagram Stories every day between 6 and 23 November.

We’ll also select 1 reply per day at random to win a fabulous goodie bag filled with Eurovision merch! You can read the Terms and Conditions for this competition HERE.
