Break dancer and motivational speaker Redo will open the second semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2020.
Redo has been announced as the opening act for the second semi-final of Eurovision 2020. Redo was born with several physical malformations, but has never let this impact on his life. At the age of 14 he broke into break dancing and started taking dance classes.
Redo has gone on to create his own style and compete in international competitions and large crowds. According to Eurovision.tv, Redo proves to anyone who thought of disabilities as limitations that anything is possible.
Gerben Bakker, Head of Show of the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest, commented:
We would like to show Dutch talent in all its facets. Redo’s enormous talent and story fit perfectly with the inclusivity and diversity of this year’s contest and the theme Open Up!
