Thanks to Graham Norton we will have a chance to celebrate the beauty of music diversity this Saturday (16 May) on the BBC show – Eurovision: Come Together.This one-off special from BBC Studios will allow all Brits to take part in live online voting, giving them an option to pick their favourite Eurovision song from a carefully selected shortlist. The list has been prepared by the extremely critical industry experts and fans including Radio 2’s Ken Bruce, Eurovision commentators Ryan Clark-Neal and Scott Mills, as well as former UK Eurovision contestants SuRie and Nicki French.All viewers interested in showing their support to their favourite artists and favourite songs will be able to vote via the BBC website. The procedure is set to be quite straightforward – the voting will open once all performances have been aired on BBC One and it will come to an end once officially announced in the Saturday show.Don’t expect a dry, dull show! As part of the programme, Graham Norton has worked with James Newman who selected to represent the UK during this year’s Eurovision edition in Rotterdam. Get ready to see hundreds of fans and former contestants recreating the best Eurovision classics of all times… straight from their homes. Also, the rumour says, Sonia will take on the Epic Sax Guy solo which we all remember (too well!) from the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest.Which song is going to come on top and which tune will not find enough appreciation? Place your bets and stream the show on Saturday 16 May on BBC One from 6.25 pm. Don’t forget to refresh the lyrics to join the party!Eurostream 2020Eurovision Song Contest 2020 is cancelled due to the current pandemic.However, the competition has now been moved entirely online – a panel of expert will judge the contestants video-clips, all this streamed live for the public to enjoy!Several major Eurovision websites have joined forces to organise an alternative 100% online edition of the ContestWhat is Eurostream?Eurostream will serve as a direct replacement to the Eurovision contest by offering a similar concept but via a live stream instead of on-stage. Hence where the competition will take its name from.Eurostream has been organised by several major Eurovision websites who have joined forces to organise an alternative online edition of the contest.How Will It Work?Eurostream will take place 100% online where the three live shows will be streamed online – two semi-finals and one Grand Finale. The two draws will prelude the semi-finals which will dictate the running order of these events. The competition itself will feature the same countries and the voting systems in place.This means that 10 countries from each of the two semi-final broadcasts will advance to the Grand Finals and these will be based on a 50/50 split of voting between national juries made up of music professional and online public voting. Eurostream will also see qualifier announced in random order and detailed results will be released following the final – in identical fashion to the main contest.Following on from the semis, these 20 qualifying teams will be entered into the Grand Finale line-up alongside the Big 5: France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom, as well as the Netherlands who earn automatic qualification due to them winning last year. The voting system in place will also be the same here as it was for the finals, i.e. a 50% and 50% split between the jury and the public.Eurostream has also promised a few surprises that are due to pop-up over the course of the streams so there seems to be more up their sleeve that you will have to tune in to the event if you are hoping to enjoy.Eurovision – Overview of the ContestThe Eurovision Song Contest has been occurring annually for 64 years with the event that is scheduled for may due to be the 65th time the event has taken place – making it one of the longest-running tv events.With each year that the event has happened it has increased in spectacle and size and today, there are some 50 countries that are eligible to participate in the competition.Although today it is considered somewhat of a flamboyant affair that is not to be taken too seriously, originally it was conceived as a way by which to reconnect the war-torn European countries in a jovial manner.Clearly, due to the longitude of the competition, this has shown to have been more than successful and in recent years, it has branched out to include more of the world, with countries like Australia being added.How Does the Contest Proceed?The concept of the competition is very simple:→ Each country puts forward a song (which must include lyrics) that has usually been pre-decided based on each country’s own national preliminary voting stage.→ What then follows is a series of promotion where people will become familiar with the songs before the big night. At the main event, each of the participating countries will perform their song.→ When all the songs have been sung, the voting will begin. In the voting stage, each country has the chance to awards two sets of either, 12, 10, 8–1 points to their 10 favourite songs.One of these sets of points will be distributed reflective of the decision of a musical jury that each country appoints and the other will be distributed based on viewers from home voting for the song they like best.Naturally, whoever wins at the end will then be allocated the winner. As well as the glory for the performer who won and the nation, they also win the rights to host the event the following year. If there is a tie, then those who earned a higher number of top scores will be awarded the prize.
