Natalia Gordienko represented Moldova back in 2006 with the song “Loca” alongside Arsenium and Connect-R. They finished on the 20th place, after being pre-qualified to the final. Last year, Natalia won Moldova’s national selection with “Prison” and was set to represent the country at the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 in Rotterdam.
However, as the contest was cancelled, the Moldovan broadcaster TRM decided to select her internally for the 2021 contest. The broadcaster stated that due the COVID-19 pandemic, they will not hold a national selection but have decided to send Natalia Gordienko to Eurovision Song Contest 2021.
Moldova will compete in the second semifinal of the Eurovision Song Contest on May 20th. Natalia Gordienko is set to perform her song on the first half of the show.
