It’s going to be a very special edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. Due to the fact that Ukraine has won with “Stefania” by Kalush Orchestra, Ukraine would have had the right to host the following contest like the old tradition. But the ongoing and uncertain situation in Ukraine is unpredictable as the country is still under military attack by Russia. In behalf of the Ukrainian television the BBC is going to take over and will host as experienced host broadcaster in replacement. It will also be the 9th time for the UK to host the contest: London 1960, London 1963, London 1968, Edinburgh 1972, Brighton 1974, London 1977, Harrogate 1982 and Birmingham 1998. It’s also planned to have a special eye on Ukrainian themes, so the logo may contain the Ukrainian flag.
