United Kingdom: Participation selection with the 2022 formula in 2023!

BBC confirmed the rumors and announced today that it will follow the 2022 formula for selecting a partipant and a song for Eurovision 2023, that is going to take place at United Kingdom.

As announced, BBC and BBC Studios will once again be collaborating with TaP Music (an international management and music publishing company), that is behind world’s most successful pop artists, such as Lana del Rey, Ellie Goulding, London Grammar, Dermot Kennedy and Mabel in order to choose a song and act that will represent the United Kingdom in Eurovision 2023.

At its statement, BBC refers to last year’s very successful British participation – that was selected through the same process that is going to be followed this year – performed by Sam Ryder. The song “Space Man” finished 2nd at the Grand Final.


Some statements by BBC, BBC Studios and TaP Music follow. Rachel Ashdown, Commissioning Editor for BBC says:

“We are thrilled that Ben Mawson and Ed Millett plus the team at TaP will once again bring their unrivalled expertise to work with the BBC and BBC Studios to find an act and song to represent the UK at Eurovision. I hope we can find another artist who will not only be a brilliant ambassador for Eurovision but like Sam will sing their head off with a stand out song.”

Suzy Lamb, MD for BBC Studios Entertainment and Music says:

“BBC Studios are looking forward to working closely with the team at TaP again to continue to build on the success of this year’s collaboration. After Sam Ryder’s incredible result in Turin, we have a hard act to follow, but are looking forward to the challenge of finding a stand-out act and song for Eurovision 2023 that will be cheered on by a home crowd!”

Ben Mawson and Ed Millett at TaP Music says:

“TaP are very excited to be back working with the BBC to select the UK entry for Eurovision 2023. Last year we wanted to change the narrative around the UK and Eurovision to something much more positive. We focussed on what Eurovision is all about – we found an brilliant artist, an unforgettable song and an incredible person in Sam Ryder – we’re so proud of his fantastic success, coming 2nd in the competition and then achieving a number 1 single. 2022 will be a hard act to follow but we’re more than ready for the challenge – Eurovision being held in the UK for 2023 is such an opportunity to celebrate the diversity of British musical talent. Our search starts here!”
