Bugün Avrupa Yayın Birliği (EBU) merakla beklenen Eurovision kararını açıkladı. Hollanda’nın Rotterdam şehrinde 12, 14 ve 16 Mayıs tarihlerinde yapılması planlanan yarışma korona (COVID 19) salgını nedeniyle iptal edildi.
Yapılan açıklamada birçok sorunun cevabını veren EBU, en çok merak edilen sorulardan birisi olan “Seçilen şarkıcılar gelecek sene ülkelerini temsil edebilecekler mi?” sorusu için ise açık kapı bıraktı. Bu konu üzerinde henüz alınmış resmi bir karar yok ve bu durum “referans grubu” ve katılımcı ülkelerle görüşülecektir. Yapılan paylaşımın ardından ülke delegasyonları da birbiri ardına alınan kararları açıklamaya başladı. Peki ya hikayenin ana kahramanları!? Haberimizin devamında ülke temsilcilerinin bu kararın ardından paylaştığı duygu, düşünce,his ve mesajları sizler için derledik.

Hey guys, I am absolutely devastated about the cancellation of the Eurovision Song Contest 2020, but in the view of this current situation it is the only right thing to do. No matter what, health simply comes first. In these hard times we have to take care of each other and stick together to overcome this crisis.

Dear friends! We want to thank everybody for your amazing support in this hard day for every Eurovision fan and participant. EBU had to make a difficult choice to postpone the contest till 2021. We hope that every artist who was chosen to represent their country this year will make it to the next Eurovision. It’s currently unknown if the songs are gonna be changed or not. Anyway, we are looking forward to writing and producing new songs ASAP! #esc2020 #eurovision #valmusic #davidna #belarus #openup
While we regret the unfortunate chain of events, we fully understand and support the EBU’s decision to cancel the Eurovision Song Contest 2020. World health, safety and security will and should always be anyone’s top priority. We wish to express our deepest sympathies to every party involved, and would also like to thank all people that are risking their lives on a daily basis, in order to help and cure others.
We hope to send you some positive vibes about ESC soon!
In the meantime, stay healthy, stay safe & stay positive! @eurovision #esc2020

Tears Getting Sober is a project that means the world to me as an artist and to the great team behind it. I understand and respect this necessary decision but I also believe we, the 2020 #Eurovision artists, should be allowed to perform our songs in 2021. #iCardEurovisionBG #OpenUp @eurovision @eurovision.bg ??

My dear all. In life you must know that everything happens for a reason. And in my experience, when something goes wrong or not as scheduled, ALWAYS something better and bigger comes after. That’s what I also believe now. Whatever happened, happened ONLY for good. And time will show. I keep that I met amazing, precious and unique people, my team, my Armenian family❤ They worked so hard and they TRULY believed in me. This is the biggest gift. Be patient, NEVER give up and remember that after rain ALWAYS comes the rainbow. In the end our work will be rewarded no matter what. Love you always and thank you for your love and support from the bottom of my heart. Please take care of yourself. The best is yet to come. We’ll be back stronger.
Your Athena??? #StayPositive

Performing on Eurovision is a dream come true and I can’t wait to stand and sing on that big stage one day. Under normal circumstances, Eurovision is a joy of music enjoyed by Europe and much of the world. The show is watched on average by 180 million people who enjoy music and, diversity of music, culture and that is the beauty of Eurovision. The conditions in which the world is currently are neither cheerful nor optimistic, they are daunting and it is a priority to preserve the health of ourselves, our loved ones and all the people around us. That is why I welcome the decision of cancellation and I cannot wait for the end of the pandemic and Eurovision 2021 performance in Rotterdam. Love you all. Take care.
Hollanda – Jeangu Macrooy
Hi everyone, I’ve just heard that the Eurovision Song Contest has been cancelled for this year and will be postponed to next year. It feels unreal, I was in such a good flow with my team. The preparations were going well and just as many others, I was looking forward to the contest. However, there’s something way more important right now: everyone’s health and wellbeing. So I completely understand the decision that has been made. I will use the upcoming period to rest and hopefully later this year, in good health, we can all look forward to a wonderful Eurovision Song Contest. Together with #TeamJeangu. Thank you AVROTROS for your support. For now, I’d like to wish you all strength and a good recovery for the people who are ill. Get well soon and take good care of each other! ❤️

I entered Story of My Life into the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 to spread the message that we can overcome difficulties in life and we can be triumphant again. We have to continue to believe in ourselves and stay uplifted especially when we feel knocked down. I will continue to support those who want to tell their stories and those who are brave enough to not give up. I will continue to be brave and I will continue to tell my story. I want to thank the organizers of ESC for working so hard to make such a difficult decision and putting the safety of individuals first. I want to thank @rte @michaelkealy1 @rte2fm , @phillymc , @thisispopbaby , and of course my new hero @philipstuff for all they have done to assist me in sharing this song and message with everyone. I want to thank the people of Ireland and everywhere in the world for your support, it means so much to me. I will always be proud to answer the call to represent my beautiful country of Ireland whatever year! My heart goes out to my fellow artists and Eurovision fans. We will continue to love and support each other and it is through this connection that we will all become stronger together.
SOML wouldn’t exist without my amazing co-writers Robert, Catt and Tom I love you!

We of course respect the decision that has now been made. During the current emergency crisis situation that we are all in, the problem is bigger than the fact that we can’t go to Rotterdam.
Of course, we are incredibly sorry on a personal level that we and our song are now not allowed to compete in the world’s largest music competition after winning the Swedish competition. We’ve so looked forward to being able to represent Sweden with Move. We hope that people continue to listen to our song with the message that we can move mountains together, something that feels extra relevant today when everyone has to take responsibility and do the right thing. If we help each other in this difficult time, maybe something good can come from it in the end. Our thoughts go out to the organizer of ESC, who has worked hard in the head-wind. Take care of each other! – The Mamas
İzlanda – Daði og Gagnamagnið
Eurovision 2020 has been cancelled.
It’s disappointing as I was really looking forward to performing in Rotterdam with Gagnamagnið.
The support has been overwhelming and many new opportunities have presented themselves.
I am really excited for the future.
Thank you so much! <3

THE ROOP press release about the cancellation of Eurovision in Rotterdam
Official news about the cancellation of this year’s Eurovision song contest reached THE ROOP. The band feels upset, yet understands that the current situation forces such decision.
“It is very sad; we don’t want to deny it. But health comes before any contests. We promise not to let our hands down and continue to promote our song and dance around the world. Currently the song is starting to reach foreign radio stations. We noticed that “On Fire” is very well liked and its path to people’s hearts is just beginning”, – says THE ROOP leader Vaidotas Valiukevičius.
The band calls everyone to remain united. Stay in quarantine and spread your good mood with “On Fire” dance at home and on your balconies.
“We managed to create something that unites people and spreads positivity. It is very much needed now. And remember that it is not the contest that gives meaning to the song, but the listeners. So, each and every one of us can be an “On Fire” ambassador and promote it”, – says THE ROOP drummer Robertas Baranauskas.
“This year Lithuania was rated very high and that is an achievement in itself. We already proved that we can be notable, brave, professional and leading. We wish all to remain that way in their lives,” – said THE ROOP guitarist Mantas Banišauskas.
The band is not aware of the future of the contest. Would they have an opportunity to participate next year, or will new selection take place? Everything will be clear in the nearest future. Currently THE ROOP members remain in quarantine and use their time at home for writing new songs. The band does not plan to slow down and will continue promoting their music. .
THE ROOP wishes everyone health and unity in this difficult period.

I am very sorry. As you know, the @eurovision 2020 has been cancelled. A painful but inevitable choice for our health. But the music stays and, nowadays, it can give us the strength to go on. #Freaky is a song to celebrate life, freedom, love in all its forms. Today, more than ever, we need to feel close to each other, to dance and to smile. Nevertheless, do not stop doing that. ?
For this reason, in the next few days, I will share with you the choreography of #Freaky that I made together with @lucatommassinireal “cause life goes by too quickly now not be freakin up”. ?
