With hope in our hearts, we ask for the umpteenth time today: “When will we know the Eurovision 2017 host city?”
Now Vyacheslav Kyrylenko, Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine, has said publicly that he believes the result of the selection will be announced by September.
Speaking on the country’s Channel 5 news, he said:
“In order not to make a mistake, it is better to take a break for five to seven days and then reveal the winner. But Odessa, Dnipro, and Kiev are each worthy of hosting Eurovision — they’re megacities with good infrastructure. There are some advantages and disadvantages [to each of them].”
“The situation isn’t critical. The city will be selected. I think it is going to happen by September.”
Given recent trends, it’s not worth speaking with 100% confidence about this, as you may wind up disappointed…yet again.
As you’ll recall, the Eurovision Organising Committee originally planned to announce the results of the competition on July 27, but postponed the results indefinitely (and repeatedly) for further evaluation of the applicant cities.
Will Ukraine fulfil its promise? Do you think something is rotten in the state of Ukraine (as one MP has today suggested)? Or are you one of those who legit thinks Eurovision will end up in a different country? Let us know what you’re thinking in the comments box below.
