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)
:am: / :cy: / :de: /:mk:

Secretive Pieces of Shit

Please select a different artist section

lol i just like being snarky and bitchy and flippant i am a chaotic neutral, dwi!!!

(which is also why i'm utterly LIVING for Jan Bors's hilariously acrimonious social media posts rn. Somebody cast him on an rtv season ASAP)
I hope someday Mr. Bors throws shade to Jacques Houdek. I'll be eyeing his facebook profile with a huge pop corn bowl on my hand.

"SHAME ON YOU, Jan Bors! SHAME ON YOU!!! Is this how a HoD of the Eurovision Song Contest is supposed to speak out? You tried so hard to portray yourself as a humble man, as a true head of delegation, and you may have tricked the entire Europe, but you did not fool me!"

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 ;)
From the current line-up only :sl: have small potential for it.

Disco is possibly my least favourite music genre. Also it's very hard for any girl group to impress me now, because my heart was stolen and belongs to my Lithuanian strawberries from YVA.

They will be very close to winning at the very least. Curious to see who enters now and if The Roop will perform in one of the heats and semi to promote their song going into the final.
No one will want The Roop as an opponent! :lol:

Should we count Aistė Pilvelytė in? She certainly doesn't care about who's here and who's not :LOL: And as we say: thirteenth time's the charm.

14 so far, that's already pretty good and seems like the majority of broadcasters are doing the right thing (in my point of view ofc) xcheer
13 so far. Croatia never confirmed Damir.

Every country without a culturally important NF will just send the same artist again, bank on it.
