Thus, evidence of interpretation of the song "Adio" was presented by the Che-MD band on May 18, 2019. The video images with the interpretation were published on the official youtube channel of the band on May 26, 2019. Due to the non-observance of the regulation, the Organizing Committee voted to suspend the band from the selection contest.
