pity that the NL didn't have the contest since decades ago and when they can host it there's the pandemy and there can't be tourists, and a lot of people in the audience, and at same time they spent a lot of money to be the hostcountry. The Faves for this year are Malta, France, and Switzerland, let's hope in the next ESC the host country can make a normal contest as usual with lots of people there.

Augmented reality sounds exciting. They will literally be able to put anything they want on stage. They could add hundreds of people on stage, dragons, rainbows, even 10 orgies. Exciting times.

They had augmented reality in 2019 too! When Netta performed Toy, there were screens appearing from the roof that was AR and duplicates of herself on stage. And in the grand final they made the arena look like a massive runway for an airplane for the flag parade also using AR. I'm excited to see what they have in store for this year though.
