Paul de Leeuw presents the Open Up Daily talk show every day in the online Eurovision Village. In the show there will be several artists including triple song festival winner Johnny Logan, Sergey Lazarev, Keiino and OG3NE.
“ In Open Up Daily, the talk show that is on show all over the world, I talk to my guests about everything that is happening around the Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam”, says De Leeuw. “We talk about the latest news, but also about everything there is to see in Rotterdam. And of course there is a lot of music every day, a lot of music.”
The first broadcast on Monday 17 May is dedicated to inclusivity and is in line with the theme of the 65th Eurovision Song Contest: Open Up. They talk about issues such as diversity, prejudice and being yourself.
