EBU announced it! Europe Shine A Light will bring audiences together on 16 May. The Eurovision Song Contest 2020 might be cancelled but the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) will broadcast “Europe Shine A Light” on 16th May at 21:00 CET instead of Eurovision.
Eurovision: Europe Shine A Light will honour all 41 entries submitted for the Eurovision Song Contest 2020, as well as providing plenty of surprises for fans and viewers at home. The show will be hosted by Dutch Eurovision presenters Chantal Janzen, Edsilia Rombley (Eurovision 1998 and 2007) and Jan Smit.
The show also intends to bring together 2020’s artists, from their locations across Europe, in a performance of a past Eurovision hit, with unifying lyrics appropriate for the current situation we find ourselves in.
Well-known Eurovision artists from recent years will also be invited to participate in linking Europe through other familiar songs from the past, performed in iconic European locations
