Eurovision season begins today!
Today is September 1st and that means Eurovision season has officially begun. According to ESC rules, any song that is released from September 1st and onwards is capable on competing in the contest. But what we know so far?
Back in May, Ukraine won Eurovision, but despite the country’s intentions to host the contest, EBU didn’t agree due to the ongoing war. The United Kingdom as this year’s runner-up was next on EBU’s list of potential host nations. After some talks between BBC and EBU, the broadcaster agreed to host the contest.
At this point, we have a total of 7 cities that are still in the run of hosting Eurovision. A final decision will be made shortly.
Up today, a total of 27 countries have expressed their intentions to participate:
|Albania 🇦🇱||Germany 🇩🇪||Poland 🇵🇱|
|Austria 🇦🇹||Greece 🇬🇷||Romania 🇷🇴|
|Belgium 🇧🇪||Iceland 🇮🇸||San Marino 🇸🇲|
|Cyprus 🇨🇾||Israel 🇮🇱||Serbia 🇷🇸|
