In a Eurovision week in Europe, the confirmation confirms that the event will actually take place in the USA. The American Song Contest will take place in 2022, will air on NBC, and will feature artists from different states, all with the goal of finding the best original song.
According to the official Eurovision website, the producers of the show in Europe have found the ideal partners to take the competition to another continent. In this case, it is produced by Propagate and Universal Television, which are part of the Universal Studio Group.
This possibility has been discussed since the summer of 2020, but it wasn’t until this year that the conditions were met to settle the various details of the television competition. According to the same website, registration for attendees from every state should open in the coming months.
These can be individual gigs, groups, bands and even DJs. The styles can range from country to electronic, rap, rock to R&B.
“For over 65 years the Eurovision Song Contest has brought people together from all over the world. As the person responsible for this extremely successful format, we saw how it found its way into millions of hearts across Europe and beyond, ”explains Martin Österdahl, Executive Supervisor of the competition.
“It is a great honor to bring you to the US and to make our dream of the American Song Contest a reality on NBC. It’s inspiring to be at the beginning of American heritage, ”he continues.
The 2021 Eurovision final is scheduled for next Saturday, May 22nd, in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Before that there will be two semi-finals, the first on Tuesday the 18th and the second on Thursday the 20th, in which Portugal will take part.
