ESC I

Yesterday was the ESC, the Eurovision Song Contest. Except, of course, it wasn’t. Virus hits again.

Normally there are two semi-finals of 2 hours each during the week and a final of 3 to 4 hours on the Saturday, not including all the rehearsals, press shows etc. That’s an awful lot of live television to an awful lot of people in so many countries.

Suddenly, after a year’s preparation, it wasn’t going to happen. No visit to Rotterdam, no UK coming last, nothing.
