Just days ahead of Saturday’s live show, Dutch singer Duncan Laurence, who won 2019’s Eurovision Song Contest, has had to cancel his performance after testing positive for COVID-19. After last year’s contest was cancelled due to the pandemic, Duncan currently holds the title as the reigning champion. But the global event, which is set to be broadcast on BBC, will have to see some last-minute arrangements.

Duncan was due to return to Rotterdam this weekend to compete once again in the biggest singing competition.

But it was confirmed on Thursday (May 20) he had tested positive for coronavirus and won’t be able to perform live.

It’s been reported that he is suffering from mild symptoms.

According to Independent, his management has said he is “very disappointed” to have to cancel his performance.
