BLIGHTY TO HOST EUROVISION
7/25/22

The U.K. will be the host country for Eurovision in 2023 after safety issues led officials to rule out Ukraine, which won this year’s competition and had the rights to host next year’s event.

The U.K. came in second with Sam Ryder’s “Space Man”; Ukraine’s Kalush Orchestra and their song “Stefania” was crowned the winner.

Eurovision’s Executive Supervisor Martin Österdahl said the 2023 edition “will showcase the creativity and skill of one of Europe’s most experienced public broadcasters whilst ensuring this year’s winners, Ukraine, are celebrated and represented throughout the event.”

The BBC will begin the process of choosing a host city will begin soon. Representatives from Ukrainian broadcaster UA:PBC will work with the BBC on the Ukrainian elements of the show.

“The BBC is committed to making the event a true reflection of Ukrainian culture alongside showcasing the diversity of British music and creativity,” BBC Director General Tim Davie said.

Interest in the competition has intensified since Italy’s Måneskin took home the prize in 2021 and has since produced hit records and tours.
