England The ESC will be held in Great Britain in 2023 – but culturally the competition should be about another country. Several British cities were chosen. Now it is clear where the music competition will be held.
The Eurovision Song Contest will be held in Liverpool next year. This was announced by actor and TV presenter Graham Norton on behalf of the BBC on the BBC One show on Friday evening. May 13 was fixed. Earlier, the city of Glasgow, Scotland was also selected.
Britain is bidding to host the Eurovision Song Contest in 2023, replacing Ukraine, which won this year’s contest in Turin with the band Kalush. This is already the ninth time that the ESC has been held in the UK. However, Liverpool is the host city for the first time. Many ESC fans gathered in the port city for the evening’s BBC broadcast and cheered after their decision.
For security reasons, the event cannot be celebrated in Ukraine, where the competition is still ongoing. Great Britain, as the runner-up, had already offered hosting months ago. The British have often ventured into other countries. The BBC expects 160 million television viewers around the world to follow the main event.
“This is Ukraine’s party. We invite them to throw us at our house,” said this year’s ESC runner-up Sam Ryder after the decision to host Great Britain. “Here in England we know how to party.” Despite this move, the competition will celebrate Ukrainian culture, history and music.
Home of the Beatles, Liverpool has a long and rich musical history, attracting visitors from all over the world every year. Liverpool has also sent local musicians to compete in past Eurovision Song Contests. Singer Sonya took second place in 1993 with “Better the Devil You Know”. Liverpool-based band Gemini competed in 2003, but only came last. According to the BBC, the show is set to take place at the M&S Bank Arena on Liverpool Harbour, which can hold 11,000 spectators.
