Let's celebrate all of the 2020 artists, who are unable to perform as intended in Rotterdam, with Eurovision 2020: Big Night In! (Saturday 16 May at 7.30pm). SBS invited Australians to vote for their favourite three 2020 Eurovision acts from all competing nations; watch as we countdown the results of the poll over three massive hours.

Hosted by Eurovisionaries, Joel Creasey and Myf Warhurst the must-see TV event will feature special guest appearances from big names across the globe and an exclusive studio performance from our very own Montaigne, giving audiences the first look at the performance she would have unveiled in Rotterdam.
