After this afternoon’s unfortunate statement from the EBU that they have decided to cancel the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest, Norwegian artist Ulrikke, and broadcaster NRK, have both responded to the news.
Ulrikke had this to say;
We have been looking forward to being able to representing Norway in Rotterdam, but right now it’s about more important things than a competition, it’s about life and health. I have full understanding why the organisers have come to this decision, so that the focus is now on stopping the coronavirus crisis around the world. Of course, I’m also sad, but now I have to sit down with NRK and find out more about what this will mean.
And NRK released this statement;
We have just become aware of the decision of the EBU, and we therefore need some time to look into what it means. This is obviously a shame for anyone who has been looking forward to Eurovision and not least Ulrikke who was ready for departure to represent Norway. We will come back with information as soon as we have something to share.
