This year’s Eurovision Song Contest is due to be held on 18/20/22 May in Rotterdam (as it was supposed to be last year before the contest was cancelled due to the pandemic). And despite said pandemic still raging, the EBU and Dutch broadcasters are better prepared this time, with a few fallback scenarios. Originally all 41 countries that were due to compete in 2020 were all confirmed for this year, however a couple of major developments have subsequently occurred: Armenia withdrew from the contest on 5/3/2021 due to domestic political issues. Belarus were disqualified from the contest on 26/3/2021 due to a song submission that did not meet the EBU guidelines and threatened to bring the contest into disrepute. The semi-final lineup will be exactly the same as was drawn last year, minus the above-mentioned withdrawals: At best, there will be a *very* limited audience in the Ahoy Arena. We now know that it will be a “Scenario B”, ie. most/all acts will perform live in Rotterdam in the Ahoy arena. The size of the audience (if any) will be determined in the coming weeks. In the meantime, here is the lineup for 2021... Albania : Israel : France : Ukraine : Lithuania : Croatia : Czechia : Norway : Finland : Spain : Cyprus : Germany : Ireland : Slovenia : Belgium : Romania : Netherlands : Moldova : Australia : Serbia : Estonia : Denmark : Portugal : Italy : San Marino : Russia : Austria : Greece : Switzerland : Bulgaria : United Kingdom : North Macedonia : Poland : Latvia : Sweden : Iceland : Azerbaijan : Georgia : Malta :
