Eurovision Venue Change for 2024

The highly successful show Eurovision is in the news with the UK holding talks to host the 2023 contest instead of Ukraine. The BBC is in talks with the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) to potentially host the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest in the UK.

The show’s organizers decided to engage in talks to change the venue after a “full assessment and feasible study.”The singing competition will not be held in the winning country, Ukraine, due to the ongoing war following Russia’s invasion.

The decision to shift the venue to the second winner, London has been met with Kyiv disagreeing with the EBU’s decision and appealing. Ukrainian Culture Minister Oleksandr Tkachenko and Kyiv believe that further talks can be conducted to find a solution that will satisfy all.

It was further said that hosting Eurovision 2023 in Ukraine is a powerful signal to the world, which is supporting Ukraine now. Mykola Chernotytskyi, head of the managing board of a Ukrainian broadcaster said that security is the first priority. Furthermore, the partners have been asked to hold further Negotiations.

Ryder from the UK had come second while rap-fold bank Kalush Orchestra, who were given special permission to leave the war-torn country to compete, soared to first place with 631 points in a symbolic show of public support.

The EBU said in a statement that the security and operational guarantees required to host the event cannot be fulfilled in the war-torn country of Ukraine.

The organization further thanked the winning nation’s broadcaster for its wholehearted cooperation and commitment in exploring all scenarios and shared in their sadness and disappointment, and that they will continue to support them.

Furthermore, it was stated that it will be their intention to reflect Ukraine’s win in next year’s shows. Katrine Leskanich, the lead singer for the UK’s winning 1997 Eurovision entry, tweeted that she was practically hysterical over the announcement that the UK could host.
