Freedom Jazz refuse to represent Ukraine in 2019

But might take part in national selection again

Vidbir 2019 runner-up Freedom Jazz posted a statement on their Instagram page saying they have refused to represent Ukraine in Eurovision Song Contest 2019.

“For now, our “Cupidon” flies further”

Yesterday the Ukrainian broadcaster UA:PBC and Vidbir 2019 winner MARUV announced that MARUV wouldn’t represent Ukraine in Eurovision Song Contest 2019. The parties did not come to an agreement on terms and therefore a contract was not signed.

Today, the Vidbir runner-up Freedom Jazz said that they received a call from the broadcaster asking them to represent the country in Eurovision 2019. They say that they refused to participate in Eurovision Song Contest 2019 and therefore won’t represent Ukraine in Tel Aviv.

Дорогі друзі! Дякуємо за вашу підтримку, любов, хвилювання і за те, що весь час були з нами! Ми безмежно щасливі, що ви допомогли посісти нам 2-ге місце національного відбору Євробачення-2019! Наша головна перемога – це ВИ! Для вас ми експерементуємо, пишемо пісні, робимо неймовірні постановки і займаємось мистецтвом. Може, колись, ми ще раз спробуємо свої сили у національному відборі… Але тільки що ми отримали дзвінок з НТКУ і хочемо повідомити, що відмовляємось від участі на Євробаченні-2019. Наразі, наш «Cupidon» 💘 летить далі. 🥰 Зараз ми на стадії підписання контракту з европейським промоутером і ведемо перемовини про концертні тури на найближчий час. Тому! Чекаємо вас на наших концертах! 💋 Всім любові! ❤️

We received a call from the UA:PBC and we want to announce that we refuse to participate in the Eurovision Song Contest 2019. For now, our “Cupidon” flies further. Now we are at the stage of signing a contract with a European promoter and we are negotiating tours for the near future.

The group thank their fans for the support and hint that they might take part in Ukraine’s national final in the future.

I started watching Eurovision back in 2006, when I was only 10 and couldn't stay up to see Lordi winning. I attended my first contest in 2013 in Malmö and been to all the contests ever since. I'm studying journalism and I love music — you will probably never see me without my headphones on.
