At the touch of a button by Mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb, the Erasmus Bridge was illuminated in honour of the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest. This happened during a live broadcast of the TV programme 'Beau'. Host Beau van Erven Dorens drove the mayor to the Erasmus Bridge in a tuktuk from the Walhalla Theatre, where the studio was temporarily housed at the time. All the usual lighting on the bridge had been completely extinguished for the occasion in order to enhance the spectacular effect, and after the button had been pressed, the bridge didn’t just light up; thanks to the spotlights on the side, 'The Swan' looked as if she was flying.
