 After much deliberation, event organisers have put a stop to the international song contest, amid Coronavirus fears.

This year's Eurovision final was scheduled to take place May 16 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

According to Executive Supervisor Jon Ola Sand, the organisers and Dutch broadcasters are considering restating the event in 2021.

"We are very proud of the Eurovision Song Contest, that for 64 years has united people all around Europe. We regret this situation very much, but I can promise you: the Eurovision Song Contest will come back stronger than ever."

Its the first time Eurovision has been cancelled since its inception in 1956.
