Eurovision Song Contest Is Canceled

The 65th edition of Eurovision, set to take place in Rotterdam in May, has been officially canceled. 

News that the 2020 Eurovision has been called off amid Coronavirus fears has been confirmed by the event’s organizer, the European Broadcasting Union. 

“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 has taken the difficult decision that it is impossible to continue with the live event as planned.”

This will be the first time the competition has not taken place since it started in 1956.
