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!

Szansa na Sukces is a popular Polish TV show that originally ran from 1992 to 2012. The show returned to Polish screens in 2019 and served as a means for Poland to choose their Junior Eurovision act. The show proved hugely popular and the winner Viki Gabor went on to win Junior Eurovision 2019. You can understand why then that Polish broadcaster TVP has decided to use the format for the main Eurovision selection in 2020.
The first of September begins a new Eurovision season and we at Eurovision NI want to keep you updated on all the latest goings on. We’ve created a new table for the 2020 Contest that will let you know which countries will participate, information on the selection process, the artists and their songs. This page will be updated on a regular basis, but this is what we know so far!
