Saturday 30 January Eurovision National Final Schedule

National final season continues to pick up pace, as for the first time this year we have more than two shows to deal with in one night.

Here are all the details you need for 2021’s third Saturday of national selections. We’ll be checking in with semi-finals in Norway and Lithuania and a final in France. You can follow all the results on wiwibloggs (and via our Twitter: @wiwibloggs and Instagram: wiwibloggs) throughout the evening. Here’s a quick rundown of what’s happening, when it’s on and how to watch.

Saturday 30 January: Eurovision 2021 Selection Shows

Norway’s Melodi Grand Prix 2021

Semi-Final Three

Time: 19:50 CET to 21:15 CET

This evening’s third semi will see performances from four artists — Dinaye, Big Daddy Karsten, Ole Hartz and Emmy. A series of duels will reduce this number to just one finalist. They’ll join the other semi-final qualifiers, one wildcard and six pre-qualified finalists in the grand final. Kaja Rode — one of the automatic qualifiers — will also showcase her entry tonight.

Lithuania’s Pabandom is naujo!

Semi-Final

Time: 20:00 CET to 22:00 CET

After the marathon selections of the 2010s, it’s hard to credit that we’re almost at the endpoint of Lithuania’s 2021 selection. But before we roll out the red carpet for the next Pabandom is naujo! champ there’s the not so small matter of the semi-final to deal with. Ten acts will compete for what is expected to be five spots in the grand final. The qualifiers will go up against The Roop who have already been given an automatic pass to the last round.

France’s Eurovision France, c’est vous qui décidez!

Grand Final

Time: 21:05 CET to 23:35 CET

After a brief affair with internal selection methods, France returns with its first national final since 2019. However, Destination Eurovision is out and Eurovision France, c’est vous qui décidez! is in. The one-shot final will see 12 acts compete for the opportunity to represent the French at Eurovision 2021. Among the favourites is Barbara Pravi — one of the co-writers on France’s recent Junior Eurovision winner “J’imagine”.

French viewers can watch using the France 2 live stream. However, this is typically geo-blocked. International viewers may be better off trying the TV5 Monde (Europe) live stream. It will also be available to view on TV satellite and cable packages which carry the channel.

What a bizarre end!?

No winner’s performance!?

And the camera showing everyone hugging on stage at the end? Did they not know it was still live? Shows what a farce the social distancing was!! I hope Barbara will be ok, the amount of people who just hugged her and put her at risk.

Well, I imagine (and hope) they were all tested more than once. But the whole show looked like a singing competition in American TV. It was enjoyable, but there’s a lot to improve on the format.

I don’t know if you ever seen the American version of The Voice. The ending of each season is quite bizarre. They keep the suspense until literally the last minute. So when they announce the winner, the credits start rolling!

They should at least give Barbara some time to perform again, even if they wanted everybody on the stage. Portugal did that when Conan won and it was quite endearing, everybody singing along.

I’ve never seen it, so that’s interesting to know! It does seem to rob the winner of a moment to perform their song again but I can see why it may feel more exciting to roll the credits with the winner in their moment of shock and glory, leaving the audience wanting more and waiting for the winner’s next output.

Totally understand the desire to just be done with it, Purple—I agree it’d be lovely to just wish it away! To be fair though, the virus is still a risk despite the recent rollout of vaccines. The show has a responsibility and care of duty to both its cast and its audience, to exercise and demonstrate safety. If the cast had all been tested, then they wouldn’t have needed distancing, masks, and dividing glass throughout the show. We all have different views and experiences of viruses but they’ll be many who know someone badly affected by or lost to the… Read more »

Indeed, it is the show’s responsibility to enforce it (or not), although it is also our prerogrative to enjoy it. You have the right to write to France Télévisions and complain legitimately if you are a subscriber – that’s fine. I just get annoyed when people “out” bad broadcasting practices on social media and spoil other people’s enjoyment of the show. In my view, TV entertainment has become a necessary escape from all of the death and suffering and restrictions and arrests and fines that some of us have had to put up with. But of course, you have the… Read more »

You also criticised SVT for not using routine testing and instead using proximity alarms at Melfest—I’m surprised you think your complaints about SVT’s broadcasting practices are somehow different.

Anyway, it was a small gripe, not an official complaint. It shocked me that they dropped all precautions once the show was officially over—and I think it’s reasonable to be concerned for the safety of these artists who are providing your entertainment and escape.

Yeah that’s fair about safety in France; I have just learned that everyone was indeed tested beforehand, so it is just a minor gripe indeed, thank goodness. About SVT: This hasn’t practically happened yet, so I wasn’t “outing” any breaches. But I can see it is a contradictory flaw in my logic; point taken there. I believe in testing because it allows the show to go on as necessary – so even if celebrations do happen, the risk is much lower than if there were not any testing at all. We can all enjoy the show whatever happens; job done.… Read more »

Staging wise this was much less sophisticated than Destination Eurovision, where really felt they had put a lot of thought in how to present each song, tonight I thought this was only true for Barbara Pravi, the rest was a little random.
Musically, I still prefer Andriamad, but I have to admit that on stage they looked a little stiff. Juliette Moraine sounded really great, perhaps the most memorable vocal performance of the night.

Yes, there’s a completely pointless ‘second round’, with 7 going through from the public vote alone and an extra eighth place for the jury to allocate if they wish—then the vote in the second round is split 50/50 between public and jury.

Pony X was maybe the only act that could come right after Barbara and remain harmless. It’s undeniably catch and entertaining. I personally think France has much better options, but in more pop-oriented national finals, they would be a threat.

Casanova’s performance was nice, but that new intro has nothing to do with the rest of the song.

We can respecfully agree to disagree, but this is a serious competition, not a regular Saturday night entertainment show. The producers/director/whoever have to treat all contestants the same. IMO there is some kind of favouritism going on there. One or two performances with excellent camera work, and the rest an expensive amateur fest.

Andriamad was born to do Eurovision, they have the perfect vibe for it. They did well, but I feel the jury wasn’t very excited by them (by the way, it’s a terrible idea to show jurors and hosts during the performances).

Juliette was awesome. Unfortunately, she’s been living on “Voilà” shadow since the songs were released, but it will be hard to top her vocals.

Cephaz gave a very professional performance and it seems the jury may back him. The song has a nice message and it’s a grower.

Thoughts so far…

Andriamad – 10

I feel very disappointed for Andriamad having to go first…seems like production pushed their chances under a bus. They seemed a bit frustrated in the interview. They did themselves proud though.

Juliette – 7

Beautifully sung, full of emotion, makes the song more lovely than it is.

Also-the judges getting promotional advertising of their books, cds, etc…feels very strange!

It was only auditions, the performers didn’t even know they were filmed, so “cheap” snippets here it doesn’t exist. 2 ballads out of 12, the rest is dancing songs so I can’t see what you mean and even if you dare to listen until the end Barbara’s song you will see it’s not a depressing ballad.
As I always say, the worst France’s ennemies when it comes about eurovision is the french people itself, it’s sad.

LMAO : last win : 1977. Last real serious interest shown > gainsbourg song 1990. last serious winning material : 1991 (that one was stolen i concede). CQFD. Facts period.

The Norwegian selection is going to be tough this year. Between keiino.and ….emmy is also very original… it’s just missing alexander rybak and i would be reeeally worried norway would win the whole thing. It s been quite a few years since the contest had an obvious winner ftom the start.
