Host broadcasters for Eurovision 2021, NPO, NOS and AVROTROS, have revealed that a spectacular interval act is being planned for the grand final of Eurovision 2021 in Rotterdam.
Dubbed “Rock The Roof”, the interval act will see former Eurovision winners taking to the stage once more. Lenny Kuhr (1969); Getty Kaspers (member of Teach-In, 1975); Sandra Kim (1986); Helena Paparizou (2005); Lordi (2006) and Måns Zelmerlöw (2015) will all be performing in the interval act.
They will each perform their winning Eurovision songs on top of the roofs of three different venues in The Netherlands – Maassilo, a party venue, Hotel New York and Boijmans Van Beuningen Depot museum.
The head of this show, Gerben Bakker, has explained the story behind “Rock The Roof”, and how all six acts came together for this once in a lifetime performance:
“The Eurovision Song Contest is back after a year of absence. Reason enough to treat the millions of viewers to unique performances from three locations in the middle of the city. The title of this great act is “Rock the Roof” for a reason. By literally filming at great heights, we want to surprise Europe creatively and visually. In addition, I could not have wished for a better city than Rotterdam. Every shot in this city hits the spot. Rotterdam will not soon be forgotten.”
“Because this is the 65th Eurovision Song Contest, we are taking a journey through time. We are particularly proud that Teach-In will reunite the original line-up after a very long time. Every performance will have its own unique atmosphere.”
