American Song Contest will debute in 2021

The EurovIsIon Song Contest gets a new famIly member: the AmerIcan song ContestThe Eurovision Song Contest is expanding to the US market. During the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest it was announced that the EBU is working on a Eurovision Song Contest for the American market. This becomes reality as it seems as Christer Björkman gave more details about the debute of the competition in the new “Mellopodden” podcast.Therefore producers will try to bring the American Song Contest to the US market in 2021. Christer Björkman states:“We use a lot of the same theories as in Sweden, Mellotänket. It should be a mix of new stars and established artists. The difference of the competition to the rest in the US market will be that the artists will sing new songs instead of covers. Of course, the competitions from the other music shows on television are great. But competitions like the American Idol are getting old and watered down.”Christer Björkman also announced that each state will compete against each other:“Yes every state will send one entry. What is interesting is that the states usually have a pretty clear musical identity and the neighboring states as well. We will get different genres automatically.”After Melodifestivalen 2020 the producers – including Christer Björkman – will meet different broadcasters in the USA. Christer told that big broadcasters already showed interest in the competition.What do you thInk about the amerIcan song contest?

I have many qualities, including musical ones, which I maybe did not demonstrate at competitions in 2016 and 2019. I do not exclude the possibility of going to Eurovision once again, but I declare with all responsibility: this will definitely not happen in 2020.”While the Russian superstar is ready to take the responsibility again to represent Russia at the biggest music show in the world, he also thinks that some new faces should try, stating:“In my opinion, some new names, a new artist should go.

On both occasions, the singer placed 3rd in the grand final.Would you lIke to see Sergey Lazarev returnIng to EurovIsIon for the thIrd tIme?

Eurovision 2020: stage design revealed!

Open up! – The stage desIgn for EurovIsIon 2020 Is revealed!We have been waiting for it and it’s finally time – the stage design for the biggest music show in the world is revealed!NPO, AVROTROS and NOS just revealed the stage design for the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest.  The design is inspired by the typical Dutch flat landscape and this years slogan of the Eurovision Song Contest – Open Up! The green room will be back in the arena itself. Stage designer Florian Wieder stated: “The design shows the connection between the sky, the sea and the land. The horizon links these elements and that horizon will work as a window to open up the world of Eurovision 2020. The floor plan of the stage is inspired by the canals and bridges that connect land and water in the Netherlands. With this design, we want to bring the artists as close as possible to the audience. I was inspired by the unique characteristics of Dutch Design. Based on that, I wanted to create an unconventional, minimalist and modern concept for next year’s show. I am very happy that the Dutch public broadcaster has been so openminded and has enthusiastically embraced this design. As far as I’m concerned, this is a new chapter in stage design, a wish I have had for a long time.”Sietse Bakker, Executive Producer of the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 is very happy with the choice stating:“The design is innovative, modest and functionally smart. This way we can create a completely different look for each of the 41 participating acts, opening and interval acts and during the voting results. We’ll present an innovative stage design, grand in its simplicity and yet full of surprises. The designer has perfectly translated this wish into his design. While his experience is clearly reflected in this design, he knows how to surprise.”Florian Wieder designed the stages for the Eurovision Song Contest 2011, 2012, 2015, 2017, 2018 and 2019. He also designed stages for big international shows like the MTV Awards, Emmy Awards and more. The stage of the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest will be build in the first weeks of April 2020 in Rotterdam Ahoy – the venue for the 2020 competition.What do you thInk about thIs years stage?
