The Eurovision Song Contest 2021 was held at the Rotterdam Ahoy in Rotterdam, after it was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Netherlands won the 2019 contest in Tel Aviv, Israel, represented by Duncan Laurence with his song "Arcade". The event was co-hosted by NPO, the umbrella public broadcasting organisation in the Netherlands, and two of its members, AVROTROS and NOS.

The semi-finals were held on 18 and 20 May, and the grand final on 22 May. Italy won the contest, represented by Italian rock band Måneskin and their song "Zitti e buoni". Therefore, Italy will host the 2022 edition.

The official artwork for the 2021 contest was revealed on 4th December 2020, and was designed by Rotterdam based agency CLEVER°FRANKE who also designed the logo of the cancelled 2020 contest.

The 2020 logo looked back at the contest's history, the 2021 logo is inspired by the world map of Rotterdam as the beating heart of Europe in May 2021.

Like 2020, it's also data-based, this time the designers used data from the distance of each competing country's capital to the host city, Rotterdam (Armenia and Belarus withdrawn two months before the contest, despite that, the design is retained).
