In this article you will find everything you need to know about the upcoming grand final of the Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam. Be prepared for the conclusion of the biggest music competition in the world!
The show will begin at 21:00 CET, and will be presented by Chantal Janzen, Jan Smit, Edsilia Rombley and Nikkie de Jager. A total of 26 nations will take to the stage, all hoping to take the trophy home to their country.
Australia misses the final for the first time
This year marks the first where we will not see Australia compete for the trophy. The nation’s representative, Montaigne, unfortunately crashed out of the competition in the first semi-final with her song, Technicolour. Montaigne was also unfortunately the only competitor not to have rehearsed in Rotterdam due to COVID-19 restrictions. As a result, her live-on-tape was used in the semi-final.
