Eurovision Again is an interactive Twitter viewing party of past editions of the contest created by British Eurovision fan Rob Holley. It was a way of filling the void left by the cancellation of the 2020 contest due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Format

From 28 March to 27 June 2020, viewings were held every Saturday at 21 CET.  15 minutes prior to air time, the year was revealed sometimes by a past artist connected to that particular edition.  As of 18 July 2020, viewings are held on the third Saturday of each month.

Since the EBU came on board, the official Eurovision social media accounts also give clues and puzzles for fans to figure out which year was being presented.  The shows are presented on the official YouTube channel.

After all the songs are presented, fans vote on their favorite songs, and the results are presented about 15-30 minutes following the end of the show.

The EBU's Involvement

As the event gained popularity, the EBU came on board with their support following the airing of the 2006 contest and have asked their member stations to help unearth some of the classic contests.  Contests prior to 2004 are still under the property of their respective broadcasters, and because of this these contests are only available for viewing for one week following the initial presentation on YouTube.
