  1. An artist chosen does not mean there wont be an nf though. I can totally see nfs to select a song out of many for Go_A, Ana Soklic, Roxen, Montaigne, Eden Alene etc

  2. The more artists chosen means less 4 hour marathon NF’s. So there is a positive right there.

    Efendi returning is certainly another positive. Hopefully they give her a better song with this second chance.

    And give Samanta a “Stay” type song as well. Samanta returning is justice. She paid her dues.

    Have we heard anything about the Loca girl? And Hurricane? Or Lesley?

  3. It’s going to be interesting. I would think the countries already having chosen their artist will be looking hard at how this year’s entry was received and rated by the various means. I hope the 18 already picked manage to get something that ‘even betters’ their entries from this year.

    That will be an uphill battle for some countries that had excellent songs this year. :(

  5. Well hopefully there’s a backup plan (that isn’t cancelation), if that Dutch policy of no big events until there’s a vaccine comes into play next May.
