Open up is the slogan for ESC 2020 and the design is still under development and will be presented soon.
Rotterdam, will host the Eurovision Song Contest on the 12th, 14th and 16th of May 2020.
Sietse Bakker, executive producer of Eurovision Song Contest 2020, and Jon Ola Sand, executive supervisor of Eurovision Song Contest, explained the meaning and importance behind choosing this very original slogan.
According to Bakker "The slogan 'Open Up' is intentionally incomplete: 'Open Up' to the other. 'Open Up' to the song. 'Open Up' to Rotterdam. 'Open Up' to ... whatever you want to choose! Take the freedom to complete the slogan in your own way. With this freedom, he added, we were looking for a theme and a slogan that reflects what the Netherlands stands for and with which the Dutch can identify themselves; a country with an open mind to the world.
The invitation is done! Open Up ... Now!

Arcade won last saturday but right after the second semifinal it jumped to the higher places in the immediate charts like iTunes or Spotify. Those charts predicted somehow that Duncan was going to win. After the weekend, Arcade is registering a big success in those charts all over the world. We will wait till next friday to see how the song will rank in the official charts but so far, this is how it is doing in the real time charts (14:49 CET; 20th May).
Number 1 at 16 different countries!
iTunes (11x #1):
Apple Music (6x #1):

Another Eurovision has come to an end! The long awaited victory of the Netherlands, a country that has made big bets over the last few years, was a well deserved victory for a simple song and a beautiful interpretation of Duncan Laurence. The Netherlands thus become one of the countries with the most victories.
But what were the highlights of the Eurovision night?
The performance of Madonna that was much anticipated by the fans seems not to have been liked by all. The demeanor characterized the performance of the Queen of Pop.
The subliminal protests of the dancers of Madonna were also much talked about in the social networks, while showing a flag of Palestine next to one of Israel.
But the biggest protest was from the singers from Iceland who showed the flag of Palestine. Nothing that surprises the spectators but that was worth much displeasure in the arena.
Putting Foureira, Conchita, Mans and Verka to sing songs of each other was the highlight of the night, but for those who do not follow Eurovision and the life of their icons, it was a normal moment.
About the results, the victory in the televoting of Norway that led to the victory of the Netherlands that neither was the favorite of the public nor the jury.
San Marino and Northern Macedonia have achieved their highest rating ever. In the first ten surprises were nil. The top bottom was the one we expected, again with three of the Big 5 and the host to suffer the usual humiliation. France and Italy escaped one more time.
The new form of voting was strange and must have been confusing to less attentive viewers. EBU, remember that not all people are eurofans.
The production of the show was bad! Still image plans or filming ladders showed some lack of experience as it has not been seen for a long time in a show as scheduled as Eurovision. The Netherlands will do better! Let's wait for 2020!

Last week, we announced the final results in our poll and the Top 5 had Italy in the number 1, followed by Switzerland, Netherlands, Belgium and Cyprus.
We wanted to go a bit further and decided to separate the results by country (not by users as we did, but gathering all the users from one country) and giving the typical 1 to 12 points.
The results were a bit different and finally Netherlands won! But the more interesting thing is that the results are very similar to what the current odds reveal. Considering this will happen next May the battle will be between Russia and The Netherlands. These are the final results:
