Oh the joys of computer generated images.
1 - it makes it appear that it'll be in the open air. It won't as the EBU won't let it.
2 - the stage is wayyy too small for the competition - and with that block of grey seating, there's a lot of unused space in the total area for the proposed performance hall.
3 - but at least they've provided a handy illustration of where the power generators and the broadcast compound/scanner base will be!
My user name might look like Hatton Cross, but it's pronounced Throatwobbler Mangrove.

Mastricht would bring the least benefit to the rest of the Netherlands as many would fly into, and stay in, Belgium and cross the border. That could be a factor in the decision.

That's why I think Rotterdam is the best choice.
They said they were 85% ready and they have multiple halls in the Ahoy for the main stage and the Green Room.

Rotterdam always seemed more likely - nowadays far more international sporting events seem to come from there than from Amsterdam, who somewhat seem to be discouraging tourism at the moment.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.

If it is gonna be Rotterdam, you know I'll be heading there in May.

The city needs more love tbh.
Also they recently hosted the MTV Europe Music Awards back in 2016
