The Mayor of Liverpool, Joan Anderson, said: “Liverpool’s track record of curating innovative, high-quality artistic events stood out to the judges alongside our ambition and determination to pay tribute to our Ukrainian friends.”

He added: “Launching the Culture Commission call-out is a huge milestone in our planning process,” also noting that Liverpool “thrives on creativity and is ready to push the boundaries, so we Excited to unleash the potential of artists around the world.” ,

Although the public vote will count in the semi-finals, the professional jury will return to contribute to the grand final.

Countries that are not participating in the contest will also be allowed to vote in the semi-finals and final for the first time and will essentially count as votes from one country – in this case, the rest of the world.

Liverpool’s M&S Bank Arena will host Eurovision 2023, which is taking place on 13 May. It is the ninth time that the UK has hosted the annual singing competition, the last one being in Birmingham in 1998.
