The Eurovision Song Contest has been cancelled for the first time in its 64-year history over the coronavirus outbreak, organizers announced Wednesday.
The 2020 contest was due to take place in May in the Dutch city of Rotterdam.
Organizers said conversations were ongoing about holding the 2021 contest in Rotterdam.
“We would like to pay tribute to all the host broadcaster team in the Netherlands and our 41 Members who have worked so hard on planning this year’s event,” the statement from the organizers said.
“We are all as heartbroken as they are that the Eurovision Song Contest will not be able to be staged in May and know that the whole Eurovision family, across the world, will continue to provide love and support for each other at this difficult time,” the statement said.
