The Roop have filmed their postcard for the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest.
The Lithuanian broadcaster LRT have confirmed that their Eurovision 2021 representative The Roop have filmed their postcard for this year’s contest. The recording took place last week during a photoshoot at LRT studios, but further details of the postcard are currently under wraps and won’t be known until the contest in May.
During the recording, lead singer of The Roop Vaidotas Valiukevičius discussed how preparations for Eurovision 2021 have allowed the group to move on from the cancellation of last year’s contest. He stated “It’s very good to feel like we’ve finally moved away from the place where our journey stopped”. Last year, The Roop’s trip to the Netherlands to record their postcard was cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions.
This year’s artists will film their postcards in their own countries, however the clips will also feature unique locations from across the Netherlands. It has previously been revealed that each postcard will feature a a small house that will represent the story and personality of each artist.
