Armenia’s public broadcaster AMPTV has announced its withdrawal from the 2021 edition of Eurovision Song Contest (ESC), the organizers behind the music event said Friday, March 5.
Despite best efforts AMPTV say the events that followed after the confirmation of Armenia’s participation at this year’s event have made it impossible to organize an entry in time for the March deadline.
“After careful and detailed discussions, the Public Television Company of Armenia has decided to withdraw from the Eurovision Song Contest 2021, considering the latest events, the shortness of production time as well as other objective reasons that make the proper participation of Armenia at ESC 2021 impossible,” AMPTV said.
Martin Österdahl, Executive Supervisor of the Eurovision Song Contest, said: “The EBU (European Broadcasting Union) community is deeply sorry that AMPTV has decided to withdraw from participating in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. Armenia have a great record at the Eurovision Song Contest and always bring excitement and quality performances to the stage. We understand the reasons for their withdrawal and we will miss their hard working and professional delegation in Rotterdam. We very much hope to welcome Armenia back in 2022.”
