Eurovision Explores 'Alternative Programming' After Coronavirus Leads 2020 Contest To Be Cancelled

By Daniel Welsh

After ending up at the bottom of the leaderboard last year, the UK took a different approach to Eurovision in 2020, teaming up with record label BMG to decide on a song and artist to represent the UK.

This year, we had planned to send singer-songwriter James Newman, who has previously penned number-one hits for Rudimental, Calvin Harris and his famous brother, John Newman.

The UK last won Eurovision in 1997, with Katrina And The Waves’ song Love Shine A Light.

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating effect on the entertainment industry, with Glastonbury organisers confirming that this year’s event was also being cancelled on the same day as the Eurovision announcement.
