ⓘ United Kingdom in the Eurovision Song Contest 2020

The United Kingdom originally planned to participate in the Eurovision Song Contest 2020. The British broadcaster British Broadcasting Corporation returned to an internal selection in 2020, this time partnering with record label BMG who selected, recorded and produced the British entry for the 2020 contest in Rotterdam, Netherlands. However, due to the 2020 coronavirus pandemic in Europe, the contest was cancelled.
