Six formers winner of the Eurovision Song Contest will perform on Rotterdam rooftops as an interval at this years contest.
NPO/NOS/AVROTROS has announced today that six former winners of the Eurovision Song Contest will feature as an interval act in this May’s contest. The artists are: Lenny Kuhr (De Troubadour, 1969), Teach-In with Getty Kaspers (Ding-a-dong, 1975), Sandra Kim (J’aime La Vie, 1986), Helena Paparizou (My Number One, 2005), Lordi (Hard Rock Hallelujah, 2006) and Måns Zelmerlöw (Heroes, 2015).
The artists will be performing on rooftops across the host city of Rotterdam from the Hotel New York to the Boijmans Van Beuningen Depot museum. Head of Show Gerben Bakker commented:
“The Eurovision Song Contest is back after a year of absence. Reason enough to treat the millions of viewers to unique performances from three locations in the middle of the city. The title of this great act is “Rock the Roof” for a reason. By literally filming at great heights, we want to surprise Europe creatively and visually. In addition, I could not have wished for a better city than Rotterdam. Every shot in this city hits the spot. Rotterdam will not soon be forgotten.”
He went on to add that:
“Because this is the 65th Eurovision Song Contest, we are taking a journey through time. We are particularly proud that Teach-In will reunite the original line-up after a very long time. Every performance will have its own unique atmosphere.”
The Eurovision Song Contest 2021 will take place on May 18, 20 and 22 in Rotterdam. A total of 41 countries will take part in the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Eurovision 2020 was due to be held in Rotterdam after Duncan Laurence gave the Netherlands their first victory since 1975 with the song “Arcade”. After the cancelation of the 2020 contest, it was decided that Rotterdam would host the 2021 contest instead.
