#EurovisionAgain 2021 reaches a conclusion on Saturday - but where will it be?

Final #EurovisionAgain this Saturday 20 November 📼

The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) has been raiding the vaults of national broadcasters in order to give fans the chance to experience a classic Contest together via rewatch party #EurovisionAgain.

This Saturday (20 November) we’ll visit another classic Eurovision Song Contest at 21:00 CEST – but what is #EurovisionAgain and how can you join in?

#EurovisionAgain in a nutshell: the official Eurovision Song Contest YouTube channel premieres a classic Contest from yesteryear at 21:00 CEST on the third Saturday of each month – but the year isn’t revealed until 15 minutes beforehand.

📺 Watch: Eurovision Song Contest – Baku 2012

Fans are invited to watch the show in sync, download scorecards and Tweet along using the hashtag: #EurovisionAgain.

Baku 2012 was the destination for the previous #EurovisionAgain. You can still watch that Contest over on the official Eurovision YouTube channel.

About #EurovisionAgain

#EurovisionAgain began in March 2020 as a weekly way for fans to catch-up with one another online as COVID-19 restrictions led to national lockdowns and the eventual cancellation of the Eurovision Song Contest that year.

Eurovision enthusiasts followed the @EurovisionAgain account on Twitter and tweeted along to the retro shows using the hashtag #EurovisionAgain – causing the parties to become a globally trending topic on more than 20 occasions and raising over £25,000 for charities (Mermaids, Stonewall and Terrence Higgins Trust) in the process.

This Saturday marks the end of the synchronised re-watch parties (for now), as #EurovisionAgain steps aside for Junior Eurovision and National Final Season 2022.

As always, the Contest could be any of those available from the archives of Eurovision.tv or previous Host Broadcasters – and the year isn’t revealed until 15 minutes prior to it premiering on the official Eurovision YouTube channel. The EBU aims to keep each Contest online for at least one month after their debut (though this depends on individual broadcasters).

Fans are encouraged to prepare snacks, download the scorecards and tweet along using the hashtag #EurovisionAgain – because Eurovision is best watched together.

You have never been to my show…

Of course, some Contests are easier to secure than others – as you can imagine, broadcast rights for television shows are extremely complicated things, especially when you mix in the copyrights of a bunch of songs and consider that some broadcasters (and even countries) no longer exist!

Behind the scenes, broadcasters are going to great lengths to assist in the finding and signing off of classic Contests.

There’s a lot to unravel prior to 2004, but it’s our mission to bring you the highest quality versions of as many Eurovision Song Contests as we can over the next few years.
