Eurovision has been hailed by many as being the ‘Gay World Cup’. So what if the format for Eurovision was more like the World Cup? The World Cup happens every four years, but we had so much fun with our Eurovision World Cup feature, that it’s become a staple of our Eurovision diary each year. Previous winners have included Nicky Byrne for Ireland (2016), Imri Ziv for Israel (2017), Saara Aalto for Finland (2018) and KEiiNO for Norway (2019). Who will win in 2020? Here’s how it works!
