About “El Diablo”
As was revealed previously, Elena is described as a “a fresh face of the music industry.” It was also hinted that the composer behind her entry was “a very big name” that would create excitement upon announcement.
We now know this was probably referring to Jimmy Joker, who has written songs for Pitbull, JLO, Nicki Minaj and countless other international stars. He is credited alongside Laurel Barker, who wrote three of the entries of Eurovision 2019 (Switzerland, the UK and Germany), and countless national final songs. They are joined on the songwriting team by Thomas Stengård and Oxa.
Back in the summer, it was confirmed by Head of Delegation Evi Papamichael that the man who was meant to be in control of staging and presentation in 2020, Marvin Dietmann, will also be overseeing the 2021 staging. He was of course the stage director of Conchita Wurst’s winning performance for Austria in 2014 with the song “Rise Like A Phoenix”.
From this information, it’s clear that the delegation are vying for a strong result in Rotterdam next year! You can see our reaction to the announcement below:
