Eurovision Song Contest 2023

Discussion in 'Eurovision' started by NecessaryVoodoo, May 16, 2022.

  1. A No 10 spokesman said: “Ukraine’s victory in the Eurovision song contest was richly deserved and as the rightful winner the Government’s firm wish has been to see next year’s contest hosted there.

    “If the EBU decides the competition can’t go ahead in Ukraine we would of course welcome the opportunity to work closely with Ukraine and the BBC to host it here in the UK.

    “But we would be committed to ensuring it overwhelmingly reflects Ukraine’s rich culture, heritage and creativity, as well as building on the ongoing partnership between our two countries.”

    Asked if the Government would help the BBC with the costs, the spokesman said “we’re slightly getting ahead of ourselves in terms of the process”.
     
  2. I wonder if the government might use this as an opportunity to trial a bit of advertising on the BBC, allowing all the usual sponsor messages to appear, that we don't normally see in the UK.
     
  3. For the love of God don‘t let any of the Wiwi Guys be a green room or social media host.

  8. Every city in the U.K. clambering to host Eurovision next year is really quite lovely to see.

  9. Probably because of the logistics with the BBC being across the river, they could have the opening ceremony at the Science Centre (Just don't look at Festival Park or the old docks), the media centre at the SECCCCCCC and because Glasgow is one of the few places in Europe right now that isn't uncomfortably hot.
     
  10. Boris Johnson said Ukraine should
    host it cause everything will be ok in a year…

    He doesn‘t really have a influence to decide this does he?

  11. No, he's just saying it because he made a visit to Ukraine this weekend. He's hardly going to tell them yeah you probably have at least another year of this to look forward to. The UK government website says to avoid all travel to Ukraine.

  12. It's not just about whether or not it'll be fine for next year, it's a HUGE event, I'm sure they start planning very very early and they need to manage logistics. It wouldn't surprise me if they were starting early production planning soon so they need to know where it's being hosted asap

    After Boris' comments... maybe the UK won't host it after all...

  13. Glasgow would be the perfect place to host it. The Hydro could have the flags of each performer on the outside lighting before each performance, has good seating capacity, the SECC for all the media, BBC across the river and plenty of hotels in the area for the performers and fans.

    And I live here so obviously I want it here.
