THE NETHERLANDS – On August 9th the two finalists for the hosting of the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest, Maastricht and Rotterdam, will hand over the final bid applications. With the announcement coming closer and closer some photos on the web made us wonder.
Duncan Laurence was spotted with a camera crew filming in Maastricht, sparkling rumours for the host city already chosen. His manager though denied giving more information but he said that Duncan will be filming in other Dutch cities soon.
The 2020 edition’s co-producer NPO and a spokesperson from the township of Maastricht will not reveal anything about the visit either.
While in Lumburg, last June, Duncan expressed his preference for Rotterdam hosting the 2020 Eurovision edition as the city is closer to the city he grew up. Also media in The Netherlands recently reported that Maastricht is the preferred choice of the EBU because the city promised to spend lots of millions for the contest.
Our guess is that next week we will have the final decision.
