๐Ÿ‡ฝ๐Ÿ‡ฐ Kosovo’s RTK to broadcast the Eurovision Song Contest 2021

Fans in Kosovo will be able to watch the 2021 contest live!

RTK, the national broadcaster of Kosovo, will be broadcasting the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 live ! Kosovo joins Canada, Kazakhstan and Slovakia as other non-participating nations who will be broadcasting the contest.

According to Eurovision Kosovo, the Kosovar national broadcaster will once again be broadcasting the Eurovision Song Contest live. Tonight’s semi final does indeed appear on the RTK 1’s TV listings. RTK has broadcast the Eurovision Song Contest live for viewers in the country for many years now.

Although the nation is yet to debut at the contest proper, they have participated in EBU events in the past. Back in 2011, Tringa Hsya represented Kosovo at Eurovision Young Dancers.

To be eligible to participate in Eurovision proper, Kosovo must become a member of the International Television Union.

Associate members must rely on invitations

As previously reported, associate members of the EBU must rely on invitations to participate in EBU programming. This is how Kazakhstanโ€™s Khabar Agency has been able to participate in the past three editions of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest.

Unfortunately the same cannot be said for Kosovo, as it currently does not meet the criteria to apply for EBU membership. However, the EBU has mentioned that โ€˜constructive discussions will continue between the EBU and RTK about future possibilities for closer co-operation.โ€™

Ever since I saw Helena Paparizou's triumph at Eurovision in 2005 (at the tender age of 6), I have been crazy about Eurovision. From the regional native language bops and shrieky female-led balladry to the sophisticated avant garde pop songs and chart-friendly EDM, I love everything about this cultural phenomenon. I'm currently working as a Delivery Manager in a software development team.
