Welcome to Eurovision this month. This is your update for October 2019!
Last week, the slogan for Eurovision 2020 was released: Open Up!
Two countries announced their artists this month. Belgium was, like in 2017, the first to reveal their participant. Hooverphonic will represent Belgium in Rotterdam. Spanish broadcaster RTVE followed a few days later. Blas Canto will represent Spain at the upcoming edition of the Contest.
Sad news from Russia. Natalia Pugacheva, who was a part of Buranovskiye Babushkiye, died last week.
The group helped Russia place second in Baku in 2012.
Natalia Pugacheva passed away at the age of 83.
