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)

Such a bad move for Ben & Tan. Did they even invite them back to be part of the finalists? If not, shame on the broadcaster.

According to the 2nd episode of Eurovision Home Concert series, Aksel announced he is making new music, and likely to audition for UMK again.

We can safely exclude Diodato for Italy next year for now, unless he participates and win San Remo 2021.

Today seems to be a day of confirmation of participants of ESC 2021:

Senhit, Samanta Tina and Ana Soklic have been confirmed to represent San Marino, Latvia and Slovenia respectively again.

And Destiny is also confirmed to represent Malta again as per official confirmation yesterday.

With the addition of 4 more 2020 artists, we are close to having half of class 2020 back for 2021 edition.
I hope we have more coming.

Somebody on Twitter said that Lesley Roy, who's doing a Facebook live at the moment, has confirmed her participation in ESC next year, is that true?

Yes, I heard the same rumours. This is unexpected, but good news. Can't do anything here until RTE confirm or deny this though.

In other news, it looks like TVP will confirm Alecja in the next few days as well. Could a Polish member look into this?

Hopefully we can add both of their names to the masterlist tomorrow.

W/R/T Serbia, I asked Stefan if Hurricane were still good and he said yes - basically RTS will only make it official once they figured out the selection format - NF with multiple songs or an internal selection of ONE song; depending on which option saves them the most money. It however definitely looks like Hurricane will be back next year.

Sometimes my tears are happy tears. Now I'm only missing Vasil for Macedonia and Arilena for Albania and I'll have my super strong ahead of the pack top 6 of this year back for the next.

I am super happy especially that Ana Soklic is returning. I hope she will have a strong song and gives us goosebumps again. :love:
