When the Eurovision Song Contest was cancelled last Spring, previous Executive Supervisor, Jon Ola Sand, promised the Contest would return ‘stronger than ever’ - and that’s exactly what we're going to do!
Not only can you enjoy three incredible live shows from Rotterdam, there will also be a huge array of content across Eurovision.tv, our official YouTube channel, and our social media platforms, to make sure you’re as close to the action as possible.
Joining the online team is Finland's 2013 Eurovision participant and bridal wear icon, Krista Siegfrids.
The Marry Me singer will host an exclusive backstage series, Krista Calling, covering every square inch of the show from the red carpet to the Rotterdam Ahoy, leaving no shred of confetti unturned to bring you all the stories, gossip and drama from behind-the-scenes across the month of May.
Make sure you’re subscribed to the official Eurovision YouTube channel so you don't miss a single episode.
Eurovision Song Celebration: Live-On-Tape
As well as guiding us through the backstage action, Krista will host the second edition of Eurovision Song Celebration, which last year saw the streaming of all 41 official videos in place of the cancelled Semi-Finals.
This year, to honour the hard work each country has put into their 'live-on-tape' back-ups, we'll be creating a special program showcasing all 39 of these performances.
As a condition of entry to this year’s Contest, each broadcaster had to record a live-on-tape performance that can be used in the unfortunate scenario that an artist cannot travel to Rotterdam or has to quarantine on-site.
All live-on-tape entries have been scrutinised by the EBU and a representative from an independent voting observer, as well as the host broadcasters, to ensure the integrity of the Contest.
We hope to see as many acts as possible on the Rotterdam Ahoy stage, but you’ll get the opportunity to enjoy all the live-on-tape performances (as well as bonus material) one week after the final, during Eurovision Song Celebration: Live-On-Tape on Saturday 29 May. Stick it in your diaries.
And of course, what’s a Eurovision celebration without the fans? Keep an eye on Eurovision.tv as we’ll be asking you to dress up, dance along and submit videos of you enjoying your favourite entries from 2021.
