A medley of past winners of the Eurovision Song Contest are set to perform across Rotterdam as one of this years interval acts.
Head of Show Gerben Bakker has revealed that the 65th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest will look back at the contests history. Mr Bakker confirmed to Ad.nl that a medley of past winners will feature during the show. The segment in the Grand Final will see live performances from the Ahoy Arena, as well as recorded performers across the host city of Rotterdam.
We know such a mix of live and pre-recorded videos that works well. To the public it seems as if it all happens simultaneously in Rotterdam: the beautiful illusion of making TV.
The segment will be similar to that of the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest interval act performance by MADCON which featured live performances from the Telenor arena and pre-recorded flash mobs across Europe. It has been confirmed that past Dutch winners Lenny Kuhr and Getty Kaspers will feature.
Update (22:44 CET) – The eight artists performing as part of the medley are:
- Gigliola Cinquetti (1964)
- Lenny Kuhr (1969)
- Getty Kaspers (1975)
- Sandra Kim (1986)
- Paul Harrington & Charlie McGettigan (1994)
- Alexander Rybak (2009)
- Duncan Laurence (2019)
