The Mamas, who will represent Sweden at this year’s Eurovision contest, are among the first bidders to make a formal statement announcing the official cancellation of the competition.
In a post they stated the following:
“Of course, we respect the decision made, and during the current emergency we are all in, the problem is greater than the fact that we cannot go to Rotterdam. Of course, we’re incredibly sad on a personal level that we and our song can’t compete in the biggest music competition in the world after our win at Melodifestivalen. We were looking forward to representing Sweden with “Move”. We hope that people will continue to listen to our song with the message that we can move the mountains together, which is even more important today when everyone has to take responsibility and do the right thing. If we help each other in this difficult time, we will be led to something good in the end. Our thoughts also go to the ESC organizer who worked hard in an uphill race. Take care of your self!”
We remind you that all this comes after the official announcement of the cancellation of this year’s event by the EBU, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
