As every year all the participating of the Eurovision Song Contest have to send a video clip of their ESC entry. This already has been the case in the 1970’s, but mostly the video clips have only been shown in certain countries with a high interest in the contest. Nowadays with YouTube the songs and video clips are available weeks before the contest. The EBU reference group is also judging the video clips in regards of applying to the rules of the contest. Hence this year’s entry from Belarus has been disqualified.
For all the interested people around the globe they can have a first impression of what to expect in the live shows. Not every video is a special produced clip, sometimes it’s just the recording of the national final. In a video clip the live singing qualities can’t be judged correctly, but on the Eurovision stage everybody has to sing live. A greatly produced video clip can led to the opinion that the live show will be the same and that can be misleading.
The video clips are sorted by country in alphabetic order. So sit back, relax have your favourite drink and enjoy the video clips 2021.
