The Australian ambassador in The Netherlands, Matthew Neuhaus, is one of the few Australians present in Rotterdam for the Eurovision Song Contest 2021. Due to the corona travel restrictions, the entire Australian delegation including Montaigne is not in Rotterdam. We focus on Australia in the first episode of the ESCDaily Show in Rotterdam in 2021.
The ambassador came to our show, taped at the Maritiem Musuem in Rotterdam. He spoke about Eurovision and the Australian connection, the situation of Covid-19 in Australia and about the naval connections between Rotterdam and Australia.
Check out the first episode of the ESCDaily Eurovision Talkshow below:
Montaigne also talks herself about her Eurovision experience and how hard it is to see all the other artists do their thing in Rotterdam. Meanwhile she is missing out on that experience. Montaigne gets really emotional about that, which obviously also strikes the ambassador.
In the episode we also see Eurovision Event Supervisor Sietse Bakker. He explains what will happen if there is a positive Covid test later this week for one of the artists.
The ESC Daily Show 2021 is produced together with OGAE The Netherlands
