Russian broadcaster hints on Little Big’s participation in 2021

January 7, 2021


  Valdis Pelsh, the host of “Guess the melody” on Channel One, made a comment during the show on 7th of January about sending Little Big to Eurovision in 2021:

“We are in 2021, Eurovision will happen sooner or later. We are going to play a fragment of a song with which Little Big will go to Eurovision (…) Because we are going to Eurovision!” 

  However, the song that the show proceeded to play turned out to be the band’s 2020 entry ‘UNO’. It is uncertain if Valdis has made a mistake or if he actually knows insider information.
