Kyiv, 9 March 2021
Folk-dance band Go_A have finally released the finalized version of their song Go_A! We will not deprive you any further with our words, you can listen to it below:
Go_A had been forced to rewrite the original “Shum” because it exceeded the 3 minute mark and because it contained lyrics from traditional Ukrainian folk melodies. The updated version allows them to go to Eurovision with an entry that is fully unique and conform with EBU regulations.
We have included the orginal version below:
Ukraine is set to perform in the second half of the first semi final, on 18 May 2021. There they will face competition from Russia, Croatia and Cyprus. The slavic nation is one of the two non-Big Five countries to have qualified from every semifinal they participated in (the other being Australia).
