Eurovision Insight Podcast: Grand Final Commentary 2021 Written by on May 22, 2021

The day is finally here! It’s time to #OpenUp with Ellie Chalkley and Ross Middleton in ESC Insight’s Alternative Commentary track for the grand final from Rotterdam’s Ahoy Arena. 

The grand final of the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest is almost here, which means it’s time for the ESC Insight Alternative Commentary ‘Riff’ Track for the show. Having spent the 2021 Season with ESC Insight, why not join us for the final step as we find out who will lift the mighty glass microphone.

You’ll be able to watch the show on your national broadcaster (or head over to for the free live stream without a commentator which is available in some territories).

For a million reasons, legal, technical or otherwise, we can’t automatically sync up with the live broadcast, so  you need to do a little bit of work. Grab the MP3, cue it up in your audio player of choice, be it portable on headphones, or on your computer or tablet. Feel free to start listening whenever you want, but starting five minutes before show starts is just about enough – more makes it comfortable.

I’ll remind you in the show, but when you hear the beep, you pause the track, and start up again when our hosts say “let the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 begin!” 

Enjoy! And you can still follow me real time on Twitter for updates direct from the Contest.
