BBC’s predictions for Eurovision 2023!

The BBC on its official website, a few hours ago, has published an article in which it makes predictions for the results of Eurovision 2023!

The issue here, of course, is not that there is a prediction from a music editor, but the fact that this commentary-critic exists on the official website of the public broadcaster that is hosting the contest this year. We do not recall that in the history of Eurovision, at least the recent one, there has been a corresponding article on any of the websites of the television stations taking part in the contest, let alone on the website of the organizer.

We have already had the first reaction from the artists, with Joker Out from Slovenia republishing the relevant BBC article with a fair amount of irony as you can see…

Mark Savage, who signs the article, is a music editor for the BBC, with more than 20 years of experience, while this year he is mainly engaged in covering the 67th Eurovision Song Contest, which, as you know, will take place in Liverpool. He has interviews with Madonna, Lana Del Rey and Ed Sheeran to his credit.
