Although last night would have - in normal circumstances - probably seen Iceland's entry romp to certain victory, it's been confirmed that Rotterdam will again host Eurovision next year.

The news was announced last night during the 'Europe Shine A Light' event in place of what would have been the actual song contest, with Netherlands the winners of the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest.

"It’s vitally important that the Eurovision Song Contest returns next year, and we’re pleased to have the necessary commitment from our Members in the Netherlands to bring this much-loved show back to audiences across the world," said Martin Österdahl, the Eurovision Song Contest’s new Executive Supervisor.

So far, 18 out of the 22 entries for Eurovision 2020 say that they will be representing their country again in 2021, though it's not yet known if Ireland's entry - Lesley Roy - is returning for the contest. The EBU, which governs the contest, told local broadcasters that they are allowed to re-enter the same act in 2021 as long as they come up with a different song.

So far, RTÉ have made no comment on the matter, beyond confirming that they intend to take part in the 2021 contest.
