Hungary and Montenegro have officially withdrawn from the Eurovision Song Contest 2020. Still, there will be 41 countries that take part in Rotterdam, as Bulgaria and Ukraine make their comeback in the contest.
Ukraine will not take part at the Eurovision Song Contest 2019. The country did not manage to find an artist willing to take part in accordance with a set of additional rules, set up by broadcaster UA:PBC, who has confirmed the news on Wednesday afternoon.
MARUV will not represent Ukraine at the Eurovision Song Contest 2019. The singer has not reached an agreement with broadcaster UA:PBC about a contract she had to sign. The broadcaster made this contract mandatory to take part in Tel Aviv.
Maruv has won Vidbir with “Siren Song”. The Ukrainian network UA:PBC will now offer her a ticket to Tel Aviv. However, some paperwork needs to be fixed before Maruv’s Eurovision participation is certain.
