The European Broadcasting Union announced Monday that the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest will be hosted in the UK after Ukraine won this year’s competition along with the right to host the event next year.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media that The EBU, which organizes the contest each year, said last month that it did not see a way in which war-torn Ukraine could safely host next year’s competition, and was therefore holding talks with the BBC, UK’s public broadcaster after the nation came in second place.
“We’re exceptionally grateful that the BBC has accepted to stage the Eurovision Song Contest in the UK in 2023,” said Martin Österdahl, the Eurovision executive supervisor, in a statement from the EBU.
