Hi everyone.

I'm trying to compile a list of every 2020 artist that will be featured in the upcoming 2021 contest (which I assume will be held in Rotterdam).

Returning artists, confirmed by the broadcaster:
:au: - Montaigne
:at: - Vincent Bueno
:az: - Efendi
:be: - Hooverphonic
:bg: - Victoria
:cz: - Benny Cristo
:ge: - Tornike Kipiani
:gr: - Stefania
:il: - Eden Alene
:lv: - Samanta Tina
:mt: - Destiny
:nl: - Jeangu Macrooy
:ro: - Roxen
:sm: - Senhit
:sl: - Ana Soklic
:es: - Blas Cantó
:ch: - Gjon's Tears
:ua: - Go_A

The following countries and/or artists have implied they will send the same act (no official confirmation from the broadcaster)
:hr: - Damir wrote on his instagram he'll be back for 2021
:ie: - Leslie Roy confirmed herself twice on a Facebook livestream after Europe: Shine A Light.
:pl: - OGAE Poland reports that TVP will send Alicja again.
:rs: - Insider reports state that Hurricane have been selected, but RTS won't announce until they have figured out the selection format.

The following countries will hold an NF, possibly to decide their participant and/or song.
:al: - FiK will be held at the end of december 2020. Arilena's involvement currently unclear.
:dk: - Dansk Melodigranprix, no guarantees or free passes for Ben or Tan.
:ee: - Eesti Laul confirmed, Uku autoqualified as a semifinalist.
:fi: - YLE will organise an UMK in 2021 - Aksel to join the line-up.
:lt: - Pabandom is naujo is back, The Roop are back, with a direct pass for the finale.
:no: - MGP is back, Ulrikke is not.
:se: - Sweden confirmed they'll use Melodifestivalen 2021 as the selection format. Not a word about the Mamas.

Likely to send a different act (no official statements have been yet made)
:by: - May hold Eurofest?
:is: - Daði & Gagnamagnið stated they would return via invite only, not via Söngvakeppnin. It is unclear what RUV will do rn.
:md: - Kirkorov really doesn't care which SovBot sings his songs, as long as it gets the job done.
:uk: - thanked James for "the work he's done"

Confirmed as not returning: (for now anyway)
:dk: - Ben & Tan
:it: - Diodato
:no: Ulrikke
:pt: Elisa
:se: The Mama's


Countries that could select the same artist for 2021 (No official statements have been yet made)

Just imagine that you dislike almost all songs and acts from 2020 line-up like me.
Would do you want to see them on ESC 2021 in this case ?

Lithuania finally gets a chance to win, and then is told to drop that song, but the singer is welcome back? Totally unfair. Almost humiliating.

I really hope EBU renege on what is clearly the wrong decision.

Think you are the only one who dislike almost everything from the 2020 contest. Why not do us & yourself a favour and lock yourself out for this year and next year since we are likely to get more than 50% of the artists from 2020 back in 2021.

For LastDreamer: there's still the possibility for the artists whose you didn't like their supposed entry this year, that they could come back next year with a song you'll like. For example, I can imagine Hurricane singing a 70s disco-styled retro bop ;)

Why is France on Please select a different artist section :D

I think Tom Leeb is actually an OK artist considering his works outside 'best in me'. I had spared my first place for him, only to be let down by the car wreck he presented us with. If they let him show his real personality next year, I can see him being one of the contenders.
