Six countries will shoot Live On Tape next weekend in Sofia. As we first revealed to you on March 15, the production company that hosted the Junior Eurovision 20215 in Bulgaria, has prepared a scene with high standards and specifications for the video of the live on tape, the live show that the EBU is asking of everyone the participants of this year’s contest.

What is Live On tape?

According to what was announced, all participating broadcasters were asked to record a live performance of their participation in their country or somewhere else. This recording will be delivered before the contest and will take place in a studio. The recording will take place in real time (as it would in the Contest) without making changes to the vocals or any part of the show itself after the recording.

There will be freedom in the missions, to present as they consider their entries better, but instructions will be given which will ensure the fairness and integrity of the competition. There will be no audience and the recording should be unique and not be published before the event in May.

Delegations are allowed to use similar technical capabilities and dimensions that would be available on stage in Rotterdam, but are also free to choose a more limited production facility. Video recordings must not contain augmented or virtual reality, overlays, confetti, drone shots, water, color use or green screen.

Initially, as we wrote in our previous articles, it is a song that has nothing to do with Prison, last year’s song of Natalia Gordienko in the contest. It is quite sexy and very special. It is loyal to the pop music scene that is currently breaking ground in Eastern Europe. Characteristic songs of the genre are many recent releases of Svetlana Loboda, Max Barkish, Zivret, Dima Bilan etc.

It is a sound like the one that Maruv first tried to bring to the Eurovision Song Contest in 2019, the Siren Song. The difference between them is that Gordienko’s song is more melodic, while its orchestration is more with western elements.

You have already read about the statements of both Gordienko and Kirkorovas well as others, which predict a very positive result in Eurovision 2021. In our opinion, the chances for the top 5 are high, as it is certain that it will do extremely well in televoting of Eastern Europe but also in Western European countries, where significant populations of the former Soviet states live, as it is a sound very familiar to them.

The title of the song has not been announced yet, but Natalia Gordienko promised us a sweet surprise. The music is written by Dimitris Kontopoulos and Philipp Kirkorov, the lyrics by Sharon Vaughn, the director is Fokas Evangelinos, while the vocal teacher is Victoria Chalkiti. Project manager of the project is Elias Kokotos.

The video clip of the song is expected to be announced by March 8.

Stay tuned to Eurovisionfun for all the news regarding Moldova’s entry in Eurovision 2021!

Moldova: Producer of a Eurovision winning song predicts top3 for Natalia Gordienko!

The Dream Team is in the final stretch for Moldova‘s entry with Natalia Gordienko in Eurovision 2021. In fact, after the statements for victory of the singer herself, but also of Philipp Kirkorov, a new relevant statement comes to further strengthen our expectations, for the Moldovan entry in the upcoming contest.

“We are preparing the winning song”

Natalia Gordienko, together with Dimitris Kontopoulos and Elias Kokotos, is in the last days in Kiev, where she is preparing the video clip of her song. The information tells us that this is a blockbuster video, which we rarely see in the contest, the costs of which have been borne by the singer herself.

From Kiev and shortly after the official announcement of the Moldovan public television that Natalia Gordienko will represent the country again, the popular singer said that together with Dream Team they are preparing the winning entry in Eurovision 2021.

It is an honor and a privilege to represent Moldova at Eurovision 2021 in Rotterdam! I look forward to working with this incredible dream team! We have already started working on creating the winning song in the most important song contest in the world!

“Moldova will be at least in the top 5”

Yana Rukdovskaya, one of the most important music producers in Russia and responsible for Dima Bilan’s two songs in Eurovision, took the baton of statements. Among others is wife of Evgeni Plushenk, the gold medalist in ice skating, who appeared with Dima Bilan on the stage of the competition in 2008.

Yana Rudkovskaya uploading a photo with Philipp Kirkorov saying that she has already heard the song, also knowing many other secrets, in relation to the Moldovan entry (obviously the script of the stage appearance), expresses the certainty that Natalia Gordienko with her song will definitely be in top5 and most likely in top3.

“A sweet surprise with a Greek signature”

The song that both Natalia Gordienko and Philipp Kirkorov presented as a “sweet” surprise has a strong Greek presence. Of course it is a melody by Dimitris Kontopoulos, while the vocal teacher is Victoria Chalkiti. The director is Fokas Evangelinos, while the project manager of the whole project is Elias Kokotos.

As you first read in Eurovisionfun, the new song will have nothing to do with Prison, that is, last year’s participation of Natalia Gordienko. The song will be dance… a lot of dance! Its sound is in a style that flourishes in the countries of Eastern Europe. It’s a piece about sex and youth. Natalia is expected to set fire with her sexy presentation. The song along with the clip is expected to be presented by March 8.

We can assure you since we are lucky to have heard the song, that Yana Rukdovskaya’s prediction is not at all excessive!

Natalia Gordienko: “We started working the winning song of the contest”!

Moldova: Natalia Gordienko officially announced for Eurovision 2021!

As we informed you in our article on June 23, Natalia Gordienko is going to represent Moldova at Eurovision 2021! Now we have the official confirmation from the country’s public television, TRM.

The members of the TRM Organizing Committee for the European Song Contest met to decide on the conditions under which Moldova is able to choose its representative at Eurovision 2021, under the conditions of the pandemic and the restrictions.

Due to COVID-19, they decided not to hold a national final this year, as the members of the Organizing Committee noted that only the creative staff and the minimum technical staff required to organize the pre-selection show exceed the limit of 50 people imposed.

So they decided to give Natalia Gordienko the opportunity to represent Moldova at Eurovision 2021, as last year’s event was canceled due to a coronavirus.

As you first read at EurovisionFun, the new song will have nothing to do with Prison, last year’s participation of Natalia Gordienko. The song will be dance… a lot of dance! Its sound and not its melody, we can say that it will be reminiscent of Maruv’s song, with which she would represent Ukraine at Eurovision 2019, the Siren Song. It’s a piece about sex and youth.

Editorial: How fair will the “live on tape video” be for Eurovision 2021?

The announcement of the EBU and the Dutch organizers for the live on tape video that will be made by the 41 participants of Eurovision 2021, although it ensures that the contest will take place even in the worst case scenario regarding the course of the pandemic, but leaves many questions in the part of justice and equal conditions that should govern the competition.

What exactly is live on tape video?

According to what was announced, all participating broadcasters were asked to record a live performance of their entry in their country. This recording will be delivered before the contest and will take place in a studio. The recording will take place in real time (as it would in the Contest) without making changes to the vocals or any part of the show itself after the recording.

There will be freedom in the delegations, to present as they consider their entries better, but instructions will be given which will ensure the fairness and integrity of the competition. There will be no audience and the recording should be unique and not be published before the event in May.

Delegations are allowed to use similar technical capabilities and dimensions that would be available on stage in Rotterdam, but are also free to choose a more limited production facility. Video recordings must not contain augmented or virtual reality, overlays, confetti, drone shots, water, color use or green screen.

How to ensure meritocracy and fairness in the contest?

In addition to the above, the EBU also announced a series of safety valves, which will ensure that the 41 live video tapes will have been made under the same conditions. Indicatively, we mention that those present in the video recording will be a representative of the Dutch public broadcaster, while the shooting will be watched by the executive supervisor of the contest, as well as a representative from an independent voting observer (E&Y). The duration of the shooting will be one hour and at this time the participants will be able to videotape up to three times their appearance. The selection of the shot will be made by the Head of Delegation and another authorized representative.

Our doubts about live on tape video

First of all, let’s say that even under normal conditions, not everyone competes on equal terms. What do we mean by that? We see in recent years on the eurovision stage, impressive appearances, with the help of the use of technology. Technology that not all broadcasters can use. Fro example Serbian public broadcaster cannot spend the money that Swedish public broadcaster spends. Albanian television cannot spend the money spent by Russian or Azerbaijani television and so on.

So, many times the countries participating in the contest can start from different points of view, but what mitigates the above a bit is that they share the same stage and it is ensured that everyone sings live. With the advancement of technology, and given that each country can use any studio it wants, even that is in question.

We read that Russia uses virtual reality in its appearance for Junior Eurovision 2020, where the contest will take place via live on tape video. An effect that other countries probably will not have at their disposal, for economic and technical reasons.

Of course for the live on tape videos of Eurovision 2021 the EBU has banned such special effects. However, LEDs are not prohibited and it is possible for different sized scenes, something that, as you understand, will differentiate the final result.

What we all hope is that everything you read remains on a theoretical level only. The situation with the pandemic to improve and to have a Eurovision as close to normal as possible, with the 41 artists performing their songs on the stage of the Ahoy Arena!

What is your opinion about the live on tape video? Are equal conditions guaranteed for all?
