Eurovision Song Contest 

Graham NortonGraham Norton







Graham Norton, who commentates for the UK's BBC Eurovision coverage, has said the song contest will go ahead this year despite the coronavirus pandemic.

"There's definitely going to be a Eurovision... The competition element is going to happen," he said. 

Contest organisers told the BBC: "We can confirm the Eurovision Song Contest will definitely take place this year." 

But pre-recorded performances may be used if acts cannot travel to Rotterdam or have to isolate when they get there. 

Last year's contest was cancelled due to the pandemic. It was replaced in the UK with a programme looking back at the event's history, including a vote to find the greatest Eurovision song of all time. 

Norton told US radio station Sirius XM that if some artists are unable to travel to the Netherlands in 2021, "they can Zoom in a performance". He added: "I doubt we'll be in a stadium full of 20,000 people."
