HOURS after the International Juries were announced for this year’s Melodifestivalen, one has already been replaced. Belarus will no longer be taking part as a Jury and will be replaced by the United Kingdom.
Karin Gunnarsson, Melodifestivalen 2021 Producer, had the following to say:
“It was a wrong decision that we selected Belarus as part of the international jury. The situation for free media is very serious in the country. We have therefore chosen to replace the jury group from Belarus with a jury group from the UK.”
The United Kingdom will be joining Albania, Cyprus, France, Iceland, Israel, Switzerland and The Netherlands.
