Dutch Radio 2 has announced and confirmed that DJ Afrojack will perform as interval act at the grand final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2020. The internally acclaimed DJ will do a gig together a 65-piece orchestra.

Glennis Grace, who failed to make it to the final in 2005 on behalf of The Netherlands and starting the series on non-qualifications that lasted until 2013, will also have a part in the interval act.

Earlier in the season, host Broadcasters NPO/NOS/AVROTROS revealed the first names of opening and interval acts for the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest. Featuring more winners than ever before, the Contest’s 65th anniversary will become a celebration of music and diversity, building a bridge to connect generations.

Interval acts at Eurovision 2020

During the Grand Final on 16 May, 7 former winners will sing their Eurovision evergreens during a medley. Bridging between the live audience in Ahoy and hotspots across Rotterdam, we’ll open up to former Eurovision winners and the Host City like never before.

Gigliola Cinquetti (Italy 1964), Lenny Kuhr (Netherlands 1969), Teach-In’s Getty Kaspers (Netherlands 1975), Sandra Kim (Belgium 1986), Paul Harrington & Charlie McGettigan (Ireland 1994) and Alexander Rybak (Norway 2009) will perform. And of course, moments before passing on the trophy to the next Eurovision Song Contest winner, Duncan Laurence will sing his Arcade once more.

During each of the 3 live shows, Eurovision Song Contest presenter Edsilia Rombley (who represented the Netherlands in 1998 and 2007) will be Eurovision’s favourite taxi driver, driving around the streets of Rotterdam together with 4 past Eurovision winners: Ruslana (Ukraine 2004), Anne-Marie David (Luxembourg 1973), Izhar Cohen (Israel 1978) and Niamh Kavanagh (Ireland 1993). They will talk about winning the Eurovision trophy and what the Contest has meant for their careers afterwards. And who knows what else will happen while on the road!
