It has an exception in order to "protect morals" so I'm going to say no, we don't.

Remember folks, the non-competive "let's see what they would have won" run through of Eurovision 2020 entries will be on BBC 1 at 20:00 tomorrow.

In the best BeeX tradition I'll probably sit in front of the telly with my laptop writing pithy reactions to each act, and then awarding a winner. All so we can totally confuse future us.

Yup. We’re watching it with friends and whatsapp too. It was so hyped here, first time in Nl in ages, every little thing was news. And then it was cancelled...

We were crying within about 20 seconds. It’s been very nicely done.

This is a brilliant choice of song to start with. Perfect, really.

The length of the snippets makes its hard to do a play by play. But I think Russia would have been in for a very early lead in every category.

Azerbaijan's video looked awesome. Would it have beaten Russia? We'll never know.

I was saying that to Russell. I hope that for the most part the performers get chance to perform next year.

I actually think the UK might have done well with that Newman song, and not just due to the splits.

This is quite difficult to watch in parts. Beautiful, but tough.

Ok, I missed the introduction toon, but what IS that song they are singing on the carpeted staircase? I know it in Wnglish but can’t get the words in my head.

Ah!! It was released in English too, and when I googled it, it turns out that I knew it from school assemblies! Thanks, Kern!

:luv: Netta.

Well, genuine tears quite a few times through that. Graham Norton has a wobble, and that made me have a wobble.

This. Sums it up perfectly.
A very strange and subdued evening, but I found it strangely comforting. Woul dhave liked to hear more of the songs, but the usual Eurofrolics just wouldn't have been appropriate. Might check out some of the songs over the next few days.

Bjorn's message was really touching.

Normal service resumes this time next year.

But evey other country hates us. It doesn't matter how good our entry is, we won't get many votes. We have to accept that a good result would for us not to be in the bottom half.

Never have entered the Peace Palace.. (builde as sort of proto united nations building in the hague in 1909), lovely to see the inside..and fitting for the song

Here the consensus was that Iceland had the best chance

Iceland clear winner for us too.

Plus the song is not only awesome, and has a cool dance, but it’s being sung to his tiny kid about how much he is looking forwards to hearing the young one talk, and is super cute.
