The alternative to the Eurovision Song Contest... it's the very first Isolation Song Contest.
The cancellation of the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 left a continentally huge cultural gap but comedian and 'Eurovizh' fan Tom Taylor asked fourteen friends from the world of entertainment - including comedy, music and drag - to help him recreate the magic of the Eurovision Song Contest from the safety of their own homes.
After being randomly assigned a country, each act was given one week to compose a Eurovision-style entry which "captures the spirit of that nation".
The money raised from the project is going to charity.
