Ukraine as the winning country Eurovision 2022 will automatically qualify for the grand final of the upcoming contest.
The Eurovision Song Contest 2023 will be held in the United Kingdom, which took second place, and not in Ukraine, for safety reasons. This is reported by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU).
“The BBC has already committed four times to hosting the competition instead of other winning countries. Continuing this tradition of solidarity, we know that next year the competition will showcase creativity and skill one of the most experienced public broadcasters in Europe, while at the same time ensuring that the winners – Ukraine – will be honored and presented throughout the event,” said Martin Österdahl, executive director of the competition.
In turn, the chairman of the board Mykola Chernotitsky thanked the partners of the Air Force with the Ukrainian people.
“I am sure that together we will be able to add a Ukrainian spirit to this event and once again unite the whole of Europe around our common values of peace, support, glorification of diversity and talent” , he said.
Earlier it was reported that the Kalush Orchestra sold the crystal microphone of Eurovision 2022.
