41 countries will participate in the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 with Bulgaria and Ukraine returning after withdrawing for 1 year! The Eurovision Song Contest 2020 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands will be hosted by Chantal Janzen, Edsilia Rombley and Jan Smit.

The uncertainty created by the spread of COVID-19 throughout Europe-and the restrictions put in place by the governments of the participating broadcasters and the Dutch authorities-means the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) has taken the difficult decision that it is impossible to continue with the live event of Eurovision 2020 as planed!
