Ukraine | Freedom Jazz reject offer to represent Ukraine at Eurovision
Freedom Jazz, runners up in Vidbir 2019, have announced that they have turned down the offer from Ukrainian broadcaster UA:PBC to represent their country at the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv. This news comes just one day after MARUV also turned down the offer to sing at Eurovision 2019.
The trio revealed the news on their official Facebook and Instagram accounts, in which they said:
"Dear friends! Thank you for your support, love, excitement and for being with us all the time! We are infinitely happy that you helped us to get the 2nd place of national Eurovision 2019 contest! Our main victory is you!
We experiment, write songs, make incredible productions and do art for you. Maybe, once, we will try our forces again. But now we received a call from the NTCU and we want to announce that we refuse to take part in Eurovision 2019. For now, our "Cupidon" flies further.
We are in the process of signing a contract with the European promoter and we are negotiating about concert tours for the nearest future."
So now that both MARUV and Freedom Jazz have turned down the offer to represent Ukraine at Eurovision 2019 in Tel Aviv, that begs the question: who will sing for Ukraine? Or will Ukraine have to withdraw from the competition? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
