CZECH REPUBLIC – Following the initial statement of Jan Bors after Boris Milanov damned the cancellation of the 2020 songs, Ben Dolic, the German 2020 Eurovision representative attacked Jan Bors for his opinion. Now Jan Bors is back and escalates the drama.
The former Czech HOD stated very clear that the German singer is a liar as Ben mentioned Jan in his social media statement.
Jan Bors states that there was never direct contact with the singer and the German national broadcaster, speculating that it is Boris who’s hiding behind Ben’s message using lies.
“Hey Ben, thanks for answering me. Nice to meet you at last. Yes, I definitely wanted to work with you. Just to be sure I don’t like liars. I had never spoken to you or called you on the phone. The first thing. Secondly – as you may remember, I’ve never said how much I love your song. I felt the prospect and the challenge to work on it and suggested a nice idea. And that’s it. I would accept such a decision without saying anything different. My personal opinion is very consistent on this subject and in fact, Thomas (German HOD) knows this very well. And the other – there is only the NDR that could give me a chance, not a composer. I have nothing against Boris and other singers. Like their kind of music, but I don’t like it when someone uses someone else or sends kids to defend him and talk about disrespect. Such a violent thing and very inappropriate for the people who are the voice of all the delegations and people of the reference group. I would advise you not to lie first if possible – start working on your song and appearance for next year, as you will now have time to prepare properly. And most importantly – think about what you wrote (was yours?) And think logically. There are people dying, so you can’t interpret this year.”
Jan Bors explained how the communication happened with the German delegation regarding potential collaboration as the Facebook discussion proves.
It is so weird why Boris and Ben are insisting on using the same song for Eurovision 2021. It would be extremely risky to go and compete with the same song after 13 months while new songs and new music trends appear in the music industry every six months (or less).
Jan, we couldn’t agree more with you when saying: human lives are far more important and a priority right now. But it seems that stupidity is incurable!
