It will be the first time ever when France hosts the competition. The city-organizer and place for the holding the competition in 2021 will be determined later.
“This is a strong new initiative for us, which underscores the importance France Télévisions attaches to Eurovision, the EBU and Europe. Let us all hope that Eurovision 2021 can take place under normal conditions in France and it will be a time of great celebrations for many Europeans,” President of France Télévisions Delphine Ernotte Cunci said.
Moreover, on December 16, France will hold the national selection for Eurovision 2021 that will take place in Rotterdam. 12 singers will participate in the selection.
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.
The members were permitted to perform next year, but on the condition that they will need to write a new song.
The winner of the Ukrainian selection, Go_A band, agreed to take part in Eurovision-2021 and shared their plans for the contest song.
