Announcement continuation for Eurovision 2021 Delegations!
“The changing conditions occurring both in the Netherlands and in the other 41 participating countries have made it impossible to ensure the protection of all persons involved in this celebration.
RTVE thanks our representative, Blas Cantó, for his commitment and for the work done to represent Spain at Eurovision 2020 and invites him to become a Spanish candidate in 2021.
RTVE will, as always, return to the competition, the largest music television show that annually attracts 200 million viewers from around the world when the situation is resolved”.
Blas,however, responded to RTVE’s proposal, saying that he would gladly continue the cooperation by taking part in 2021.
“I’m so sorry for that. A great job behind an incredible team for many months of work, not only in my candidacy, but globally, but I think it’s right … There are countries that are now starting the epidemic and it is not known when it will be able to stop.
There is a commitment on my part to continue working for our candidacy in 2021 and I am very pleased to have the opportunity to do so next year. There are things we need to do. We are going to get Eurovision in style, it will be my flag and we have time to do it so that we have a good performance in 2021.
All I want is for people to be together and stay home so that the pandemic can stop as soon as possible. Health comes first. We need to give priority to us. Because without us there is no festival. Doing it without the public was not crazy, because Eurovision is the world. Without them there is nothing. It was important to do it right because Eurovision is worth giving it its importance.
