Followers of Eurovision 2021 accused Australian public television SBS (Private Broadcasting Service), which was last responsible for deciding that Montaigne did not travel to Europe. The candidate was “very sad” for not being able to physically participate in Eurovision.
But he asked for calm: “SBS is innocent, please, nobody blames … only this stupid virus.” At the same time, he confirmed that he will not be eligible to participate in the festival again next year: “I don’t need to go to Eurovision again next year. I need to do other things.”
Australia’s absence in Rotterdam has caused unusual images to emerge so far, as no journalist covered the Australian delegation’s press conference after the first rehearsal. “I appreciate the support everyone is showing me here, but I also promise you that I have no idea how many journalists are in the press room.
