The Eurovision Song Contest 2021 will take place in Rotterdam. The Dutch city was due to host the Contest in 2020 before the event was cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The venue for the 2021 Contest will, like in 2020, be Ahoy in Rotterdam.
In February it was announced that a "normal" Eurovision Song Contest could not take place under the current circumstances and that organizers were “determined yet optimistic” that the 65th edition of the world’s largest live music event could take place under ‘Scenario B’ - a scaled down but ambitious version of the Contest with strict health and safety measures and social distancing. Under Scenario B the number of people in each delegation has been reduced from previous editions, and the number of journalists who can attend the event will also be capped at 500 with a further 1,000 able to cover the show in a new online press centre.
According to the bookmakers our own Hooverphonic has a good chance with ‘The wrong place’ to make it into the final Top 10.
