Eurovision Song Contest 2021, first semi final review: Triumphant resurgence of music, togetherness and the absurd


The first semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest is usually thought-about, on this nation, appropriate for followers solely. That’s most likely why the BBC all however conceals it by broadcasting it on BBC 4. The Grand Final, against this, can be on BBC One on Saturday evening. 

However the semi-finals are, for any Eurovision lover, simply as unmissable as the fundamental occasion. In any case, if the cause that you just like Eurovision is the fully unpredictable weirdness of it, watching out for the most weird costumes and strangest characters and most incomprehensible dance routines that make you are feeling you have momentarily misplaced your thoughts, the semis are the place it’s at, earlier than all the weirdest stuff will get filtered out in the first spherical of voting.


And this yr of all years, the first semi-final, with performers from throughout Europe singing and dancing on stage stay in entrance of an viewers, felt like a particular second. Eurovision was cancelled in 2020, like all the things, and its 2021 return marks a triumphant resurgence of music, togetherness and the absurd. By no means thoughts BBC One, it must be on the information. I by no means thought I’d be so emotional to listen to the phrases “Good Night Europe”.
