The organizers of the Eurovision Song Contest decided to keep the results of the draw for the semifinals held for the 2020 competition, which was canceled due to coronavirus, in force.

There will be no new draw, scheduled for January 2021, according to the competition website.

“Since the same 41 countries will take part in the competition, the participants from which were supposed to sing in May in Rotterdam, the Eurovision reference group decided not to hold a new draw in January,” the organizers explained.

It is noted that thus, the countries that this year dropped out to participate in the first and second semi-finals will remain on the same lists in Rotterdam in 2021.

The 65th Eurovision Song Contest was scheduled to take place from May 12 to May 16 at the Ahoy Concert Hall in Rotterdam in the Netherlands, but was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Instead, on May 16, an online show was held with all the participants in the canceled Eurovision 2020.

It was reported that the members will be able to perform next year, but on the condition that they will need to write a new song.
