It seems that Britain is one step closer to hosting the Eurovision Song Contest in 2023, as the runner ups of the 2022 competition.
The reason why is because, unfortunately, the winning country – Ukraine, will not be capable of hosting next year due to the ongoing war.
With Stefania by Kalush Orchestra, the nation triumphed this year as fans throughout the continent expressed their support for the country following Russia’s invasion.
The winner nation typically hosts the competition the year after, however, the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) stated that it had come to the conclusion that Ukraine could not host it.
The BBC was reportedly in discussions to hold the competition in the UK, where Sam Ryder’s Space Man took second place.
The @EBU_HQ has issued the statement below regarding the hosting of next year’s #Eurovision Song Contest.
