The winner of the American Song Contest will not appear at Eurovision in Turin , according to the competition’s executive producer Christer Björkman .
Speaking in an exclusive interview a few days after the second show of the American Song Contest, Björkman said that “it would not be possible” for the winner of the contest to appear as a guest at Eurovision next month.
Yeah I would like to see that eventually. This year is gonna be complicated because we moved our show [back] four weeks due to COVID so that complicated it. It’s now in the same week [as Eurovision] so I think that’s not even doable because obviously in Europe we wouldn’t keep a spot open like that. But in the future – if there is a future – yes, that would be great.
The last show of the competition for 2022 will take place on May 9, just one day before the first Semi-final of Eurovision. Because of these events, the appearance of the winner of the American Song Contest is impossible to be a part of Eurovision 2022.
American Eurovision fans who hope to see the appearance of last year’s winners Måneskin in the American competition this year will also be disappointed.
I would have loved to have Måneskin in our show. But being in the same week that’s also gonna be impossible. They will be totally blocked in Italy obviously. For a future final that would be great both ways I would say.
