The BBC is to air a social-distancing-compliant Graham Norton-hosted Eurovision celebration on Saturday 16 May - the date when the 2020 Song Contest was scheduled to take place in Rotterdam, before the coronavirus pandemic led to its cancellation.


Advertising the event, the BBC said: “BBC One and Graham Norton bring the country together for a special Eurovision broadcast - Eurovision: Come Together on Saturday 16 May.

“Produced by BBC Studios, the show will feature classic Eurovision performances, a look at what would have been in 2020, and entertaining interviews, including this year’s UK entry James Newman.


“Eurovision: Come Together will be produced by BBC Studios for BBC One.”
