The cancellation of Eurovision 2020 due to the coronavirus, made some countries reconsidering their selection process toward Eurovision 2020.
Ben&Tan won “Dansk Melodi Gand Prix 2020″ and therefore should have represented Denmark at Eurovision 2020 with the song “Yes”
A few days ago, Ben&Tan hinted in the social media that Denmark may hold another edition of “Dansk Melodi Grand Prix” in 2021.
Earlier today, The Danish Broadcaster DR has confirmed “Dansk Melodi Gand Prix 2021” as the selection process for Eurovision 2021.
DR welcomes Ben&Tan to participate in the national selection again in 2021.
However, their spot in the final of the national selection isn’t promised.
In an interview, Tanne Balcells (aka Tan) mentions that the duo won’t come back to “Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2021“:
“All the momentum that you build towards Eurovision is part of being part of it. With promotion and what else belongs to things, you have to. I feel it would fall to the ground if it were to be in a year’s time.
I feel we would take the place from some others. After all, we have tried to be part of the show. It must be someone else’s trip next year. That is the most fair.
And you can run the risk of losing again and then lose, and that’s what people remember. So we would rather leave it to victory and then otherwise focus on our music.”
For the moment, 13 countries confirmed that they will keep the representatives of Eurovision 2020 for Eurovision 2021. The countries are:
- The Netherlands
While other 7 countries confirmed they will select new artists for Eurovision 2021:
