EUROVISION.TV REPORTS / THE NETHERLANDS – After the unprecedented cancellation of the Eurovision Song Contest this year, multiple participating broadcasters announced that they will continue into 2021 with the same artists they selected for Rotterdam 2020.
These 10 – at the time of writing – artists are set to compete in next year’s Contest with entirely new songs.
On Wednesday 18 March, EBU regretfully had to announce the cancellation of this year’s contest due to the uncertainty created by the spread of COVID-19 throughout Europe and the restrictions put in place by the governments of the participating broadcasters and the Dutch authorities.
After the cancellation, the following countries announced that they will be represented in 2021 by the representative initially selected for this year: Azerbaijan, Belgium, Bulgaria, Georgia, Greece, Israel, Spain, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Ukraine.
With the unusual situation of 10 artists for the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 already selected in March, more than a year before the Contest will take place, the national selection season for 2021 will be very different from previous years.
