What do we do with a cancelled Contest?

For understandable reasons, the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest has been cancelled. That’s sad and disappointing for fans but all the more so for the artists, writers and delegations who’ve been working hard towards it.

With the acts and songs all announced, I’d loaded all the artist information into Six on Stage already. So how to handle the unprecedented situation of a Eurovision Song Contest that’s no longer happening?

There are two changes to the site to reflect this. The first is that all the 2020 data will stay but it will be marked out on the relevant pages to clarify that the Contest didn’t happen. That’s only fair on the people who got this far and remains a useful reference source.

The second is that all the statistics shown on the site now only go up to 2019 and in future will only reflect the Contest once it’s broadcast. This also allows for last-minute changes to announced personnel (backing dancers have been known to retire injured!) while still enabling information for the upcoming year to be included and displayed.

On which note, the 2021 page is now live
