Will Eurovision go to Ukraine, You’ve been hearing it for weeks: Ukraine looks set to win the Eurovision Song Contest of 2022. The bookmakers are still sure that Kalush Orchestra will get the most votes with Stefania. And so the question arises: if they win, will the whole party go to Ukraine next year?
Yes, says Oleg Psiuk, the rapper of Kalush Orchestra. As far as he is concerned, we celebrate the Eurovision Song Contest of 2023 in a war-free Ukraine and music will be made in a stronger and more beautiful country.
That’s how he put it at a press conference.
But yes, psiuk may want that, in practice it is quite complicated. The organization of the Eurovision Song Contest actually starts at the moment that the cup is handed over to the winning artist.
The organizing broadcaster enters into talks with the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) almost immediately and the process is further initiated in the following months.
Cities sign up and make a so-called bid book. It describes from A to Z what the city has to offer: the perfect place for the festival, the number of hotel rooms, how easily the city is accessible and what the plans are for a Euro Village. And those are just a few examples.
All those points are reviewed by the EBU and the organization and then it is decided which city it will be. That all happens relatively quickly:
Duncan Laurence won on 18 May 2019, then several cities signed up and on 30 August Rotterdam appeared to have become the winner.
Will Eurovision go to Ukraine if Kalush Orchestra wins tonight?
