OREANDA-NEWS. Bookmakers have named the representative of Malta Destiny Chukuniere, who will perform with the song "Je Me Casse", the likely winner of the Eurovision Song Contest 2021. The data was published by the Eurovisionworld portal.

The second and third places, according to experts' forecasts, will be taken by musicians from Switzerland and France. This year Switzerland is represented by singer John Muharremay, who performs under the stage name Gjon’s Tears, while France is represented by singer and actress Barbara Pravy.

The Russian singer Manijou has been placed in thirteenth position so far. Despite this, the video of her performance with the song "Russian Women" on the Eurovision YouTube channel became the second most popular, second only to the video of the group Hurricane, which will represent Serbia with the song Loco Loco.

The Eurovision Song Contest, canceled last year due to the pandemic, will take place on May 18-22 at the Ahoy Arena in Rotterdam with the participation of artists from 41 countries. The organizers said that the competition will be held offline, but the composition of the delegations, as well as the number of journalists, are planned to be reduced.
