In Eurovision this month, we look back on what happened in the world of the Eurovision Song Contest over the past month. In July, we said goodbye to Jon Ola Sand, Slovenia started their song search for 2021, San Marino's Senhit started a freaky trip to Rotterdam and Little Big's 'Uno' became the most-watched video on our YouTube Channel.
Summer is in full swing! Even though we can't celebrate it like we're used to, it doesn't mean nothing is happening in the world of Eurovision. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this overview of July.
Uno is number one on our YouTube Channel
Uno, Uno, Uno! Little Big's Music Video for their Eurovision entry in 2020 is now the most-watched video of all times on the Eurovision YouTube Channel, taking over from Netta and her song Toy. Within 4 months after its publication, the video has reached over 137 million views and counting! This leaves Toy in second place, with 'only' 134 million views. Check out the music video of Uno below:

Take it away!
Known for the iconic words, "take it away," Jon Ola Sand, Eurovision's Executive Supervisor since 2011, has become a legend at the Contest. We took some time to thank him for all he has contributed to the Eurovision Song Contest over the last 10 years.
