Retrica Song Contest
◄1 Eurovision Heart 3►

The Retrica Song Contest 2 was the second edition of the Retrica Song Contest.

Format Edit

The CCU announced after the first Retrica Song Contest that the contest would permanently allow associate members of the CCU to join due to the lack of interest in the contest. Despite allowing associates, only eight of these countries joined this edition compared to one in the CCU. Should the CCU have not done this rule, only ten countries would have been participating meaning that the contest would have been cancelled should the rule have not been introduced.

Results Edit

No. Country Artist Song Place Points

Other countries Edit

  • Flag of Antigua and Barbuda Antigua & Barbuda: ABS TV confirmed participation which was 100% funded by sponsors, a decision which surprised many people being the only small country to debut.
  • Flag of Belgium Belgium: The nation, as a neighbor of Netherlands, decided to join its protest of the random draw, and also the low position of the country last edition; withdrawing.
  • Flag of Finland Finland: The nation were meant to debut in the contest, but pulled out last minute due to scheduling issues. The broadcaster then stated that they would likely debut next edition.
  • Flag of Netherlands Netherlands: AVROTROS withdrew from the contest following the controversy of being drawn before a song of the same title.
