Redditvision Song Contest
◄20 21 22►

Redditvision Song Contest 21 was the twenty-first ordinary and twenty-third overall edition of the Redditvision Song Contest. It was hosted by u/Dugly_Uckling in Nice, France after the previous edition's host and winner u/Bowman3058, and runner up u/j_tennant, both turned down hosting. This is the first time the rights for hosting was given to the third-placed delegate of the previous edition rather than the winner or runner-up.

A total of 59 entries were submitted, a small decrease from the 62 entries submitted in edition 20.

The winner was Dominica with the song "Birthplace" by Novo Amor.

Participants

Some users announced their withdrawal before the contest: u/SaltyPopcorn02, who had participated in the eighteen preceding editions, winning edition 8 with a then-record number of points. u/JOEMOMO had participated in 4 editions, with a semi-final win and a 21st place as their best result.

Several countries made their debut. This includes Antigua and Barbuda, who were due to make a debut in second special edition but ultimately didn't. Bahrain, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, South Sudan and Uruguay also debuted.

60 users signed up during country claiming, and 59 of them submitted an entry. Tanzania did not submit an entry in time. u/-MaxK-, u/ChocolateDonut1, u/Tiko_Yates and u/TonyCannelloni made their Redditvision debuts.
