In absence of our annual host country special for obvious reasons, the team decide to dabble in speculating an alternate Eurovision timeline. A timeline where Italy didn’t withdraw from Eurovision during the 90’s and 00’s, and their entry was the Sanremo winner of that year.
How will they have fared on the scoreboard? Would they be fan favourites? Would Eurovision have been better off if Italy was competing during that time? All those questions and more are answered in this episode…
National final season is over for 2020, and the team take time to reminisce over the highlights of the past six weeks and list the songs that will be sadly missed. There is also a brief discussion about how the current coronavirus pandemic could affect this year’s contest. We also have our last round of listener’s questions.
NOTE – since recording, the coronavirus situation has escalated further, but most of our comments on the situation still apply.
We’re almost at the end of national final season as we look at the selected entries over the past week, and preview the last set of finals in Israel, Denmark, Finland, Portugal and Sweden. We also have our weekly news roundup.
