Earlier in the year, Iceland’s Daði Freyr opened submissions from the public to be part of the choir singing in his Eurovision 2021 song “10 Years”. And now it appears that there’s another Eurovision star among the thousand voices. Germany’s Jendrik has revealed that he submitted his vocals to Daði.

Jendrik shared the news in the latest edition of his Eurovision Song Contest Diary on TikTok.

@mynameis_jendrikI also did this ##idontfeelhate♬ Originalton – Jendrik

Jendrik described the creative process behind his contribution. After watching Daði’s call for submissions, Jendrik says he realised, “if I send in my voice, there is the possibility that I am in not only one song at the Eurovision Song Contest but in two – and also in one of Daði’s songs?!”

The German star got to work recording his vocal submission and sent it off to Daði.

Jendrik concluded, “So now I’ve got two chances to be in the winner’s song of the Eurovision Song Contest. Not only in my song, but also in this part of Daði’s song.” He let out a wicked laugh and joked, “I’m an evil genius!”

Is Jendrik allowed to sing on two different Eurovision songs?

Some Eurovision fans have wondered if Jenrik might be in breach of one of the Eurovision rules. The rule in question specifies that one artist may not represent more than one country:

2.2.3 Artists

(iii) Country representation
No Contestant and/or artist may compete for more than one country in the ESC in a given year.

However, Jendrik probably doesn’t run afoul of this rule. Along with the thousands of other choir members, Jendrik is not a credited performer in Iceland’s entry.

As well, he won’t appear on stage alongside Daði & Gagnamagnið in the “10 Years” performance. Even listening to the choral part of “10 Years” — which overall sounds like a children’s choir — there’s no obvious clue that Jendrik is part of the mass of singers.

With the new rule for Eurovision 2021 allowing pre-recorded backing vocals to be used, this is the first time that such an issue has arisen.

Meanwhile, Daði Freyr appears happy to have discovered the identity of one of his choir members. On Twitter, he responded to Jendrik with “hahaha love this!!!!!!!”

What do you think? Should more Eurovision stars contribute backing vocals on competing songs? Or should they stick to their own entry? Tell us your thoughts below!

That is an excellent point. How on earth can you flip out about this, but be fine with songwriters or creative designers working on entries for multiple countries (which is a much bigger involvement)? Makes absolutely no sense.

I don’t like him or his song either, but you seriously have to calm down. This could have been a charming little story, hadn’t he done it solely for promotion purposes.
