39 songs: This is the line-up for the Eurovision Song Contest 2021

by | Mar 26, 2021 | 2021 ESC General, Eurovision, Featured

The EBU has confirmed the exclusion of Belarus from the Eurovision Song Contest 2021, and so it’s pretty safe to say: We finally know the complete line-up for this year’s edition!

39 countries are expected to participate at the upcoming 65th Eurovision Song Contest, which will be held on 18, 20 and 22 May in Rotterdam, Netherlands.

Some insecurities about various countries’ participation, and thus the total number of entries, had been circulating in recent weeks:

Armenia withdrew from the contest on 5 March due to the situation in the country after the recent war.

In North Macedonia, a heated controversy was triggered by the submitted music video of Vasil Garvanliev’s song “Here I Stand”, revolving around an alleged display of the Bulgarian flag and the singer’s Bulgarian background. As a reaction to the hateful protest of many angry compatriots, the North Macedonian head of delegation published a statement which was understood by some as an indication that the artist, and thus the participation of the country, could be withdrawn. In the end, the broadcaster confirmed Vasil as the country’s representative at the Eurovision Song Contest.

Belarus submitted a song that was rejected by the EBU (after initially being accepted) as it was found to not comply with the rules of the contest. They were offered to submit an alternative entry, but today it was confirmed that the other submission didn’t meet the EBU’s requirements either, and thus Belarus was excluded from the competition.

Like every year, we at escgo! will be examining the participating entries in our upcoming Line-Up Check series – beginning with the host country, the Netherlands. Stay tuned for that!

We complete our reviews of the semi 1 songs with the current bookmakers' favourite to win #Eurovision 2021: Malta! 🇲🇹

The Maltese PR machine goes into overdrive at this time of year - so what can it achieve with a genuinely marketable package like this?
