OGAE Video Contest 2021 line-up
The OGAE Video Contest line-up has been revealed for 2021, and there are 24 entries in the line-up this year vying for the title.
The contest is one of three held by the OGAE International Network annually, alongside the OGAE Second Chance Contest (in which entries from national finals that didn’t win compete against each other) and the OGAE Song Contest (in which non Eurovision and National Final songs compete).
Each national OGAE fan club selected an original song and video to represent them in the contest, with members voting on the video, not the song. Voting is now open, and all clubs must submit their votes to the organisers by November 28.
This year’s edition is being hosted by Sweden, who won last year thanks to Agnes and her video for ‘Fingers Crossed’. Previous winners include Myléne Farmer, Stromae, Via Gra, Coldplay, LOBODA and Loïc Nottet.
Australia is being represented this year by Kylie Minogue and her song ‘Say Something’ selected by OGAE Australia members.
The line-up is below:
