United Kingdom: BBC One will broadcast all Eurovision 2024 shows!

The BBC recently announced that the UK will compete in the 68th Eurovision Song Contest, which will take place in Malmö, Sweden, in May 2024.

At the same time, it was announced that the two semi-finals of Eurovision 2024 as well as the grand final will all be broadcasted on BBC One, as was the case in 2023 when the country hosted the competition on behalf of Ukraine. The broadcaster’s decision to broadcast the contest once more on its top-rated and most popular channel is a sign of a significant shift in the latter’s perspective on the competition.

The record-breaking high television ratings from the competition last year, which reached 55% and 29.8 million people, had an important impact in this choice.

In addition, it was revealed that Lee Smithurst, executive producer for BBC Studios, and Will Wilkin, executive director for BBC Music, had spent the summer conducting a search for the UK’s upcoming participation in the Eurovision song contest.

This year, the United Kingdom was represented by Mae Muller with the song “I wrote a song”, finishing in 25th place with 24 points. Will the United Kingdom be able to achieve a higher position in Malmö ?
