The Ukrainian band Go_A , which was supposed to represent their country at the Eurovision Song Conest 2020 in Rotterdam with “Solovey”, were one of the first participants that were announced to be participating at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2021.
Earlier this week, we found out that their three potential songs for Eurovision 2021 are called “Tserkovka”, “Rano” and “Shum”. The decision on which of these songs is going to represent Ukraine was made by an internal jury, consisting of Jamala, the Eurovision winner of 2016, Yaroslav Lodygin, who is in charge of the UA:PBC television platform, Dmytro Khorkin, responsible for the UA:PBC radio platform, “The Maneken” vocalist Yevhen Filatov and music producer Ruslan Quinta.
Today it was announced that the jury decided on “Shum” to be Ukraine’s entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2021. It was the first time since 2004 that the Ukrainian entry was decided by a jury!
