With Belarus’ disqualification on Friday, we now know the official line-up f0r semi-final one of Eurovision 2021.
The journey began back in January when Israel chose “Set Me Free” for Eden Alene. Ironically, Eden’s “Set Me Free” was also the last song for us to hear in its Eurovision version, with a revamped edit only coming out on 26 March.
