Following on from the cancellation of Eurovision 2020 in Rotterdam, the Ukrainian broadcaster UA: PBC announced that they will be participating in Eurovision 2021 and that they would be sending their 2020 representatives, Go_A.
Speaking on the television programme ЖВЛ, the lead singer of Go_A, Kateryna Pavlenko, spoke about both Vidbir and Eurovision, among many other things. The band were very happy to find out that they would be going to Eurovision 2021, but they were not as happy upon finding out that their Eurovision 2020 song, Solovey, would not be eligible to participate. "Initially, I was upset that the song Solovey will not sound at Eurovision. I did not think that we would need a completely new composition..."
However, in light of this news, the band has decided that they will prepare a total of five songs, with one of them going on to represent Ukraine at Eurovision 2021."...We received a lot of comments in which fans wanted our next song. We've decided that in that case we will prepare five of which the listeners will chose one."
At the moment, we don't have any details on when these five songs will be revealed, or how the winning song will be chosen, but it is likely that the band will work together with the Ukrainian broadcaster to bring their ideas to fruition.
Whilst we await new music from Go_A, check out Andy's reaction to Solovey
