Round one: completed! Our Eurovision Home Contest is now well and truly underway, having sent 10 more acts to the Grand Final! Let’s discover them!

The cancellation of the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 amid the COVID-19 outbreak might have deeply disappointed the Eurovision community, but our website has decided to honor in its own way the 41 artists chosen to take to the stage of the competition in Rotterdam.

Following in the standards of our beloved contest, today, Tuesday, we kicked off our #EurovisionHomeContest by holding a live voting for the 17 acts that were due to compete in the first semi-final of the competition on 12 May. Starring in this event is none other than you, who are voting for your favourite country from your home’s comfort.
