British Japanese singer Rina Sawayama will not represent the United Kingdom at the Eurovision Song Contest.
The Eurovision Song Contest 2023 will take place in Liverpool after Sam Ryder finished in second place. Last year’s winner, Ukraine was unable to meet the EBU demands to host the Festival.
It is still not clear who will wave the British flag representing the host country though. However, there was an unfounded rumour that BRIT nominee Rina Sawayama would be the chosen one.
The rumour originates from TikTok and is based on the singer’s European tour. Rina Sawayama does not have any scheduled event between 27th February and the 16th of June. This would be enough time to prepare to rehearse and participate in Eurovision related activities before the Grand Final which will take place in May 13, 2023.
Unfortunately for the fans of the Hold the Girl singer, this gap is not related to the Eurovision Song Contest. According to a source from Radio Times, this overlap is purely coincidental.
The BBC is yet to confirm who will represent the host country in Liverpool.
