Melodifestivalen producer Anette Helenius says SVT has opted to cancel its participation as a precautionary measure. They believe that meeting participation can be done with digital tools.

“It’s an ordinary meeting for us. We have attended this meeting annually and know what is expected of us and then believe we can deliver what we need digitally. It is a simple precaution not to be present”.

When asked about everything they are doing around the internet about a possible cancellation or timing of Eurovision 2020,Anette replies that it is too early to say if Sweden should cancel its participation in Rotterdam.

“It is up to the organizers to evaluate if there is a reason to cancel the event. So we wait for their recommendations. I see no reason to be skeptical of their judgment”.
