This post was updated at 13:45 CEST on 7 October. Scroll to the end of the post for the update. Our original article remains below. 

In “Grace Kelly” Mika sings that he could be brown, he could be blue, he could be violet sky. And if Italy’s Eurovision commentator Gabriele Corsi has it right, then Mika could also be the next host of the Eurovision Song Contest.

Here’s how it went down. On Wednesday, while presenting his Radio Deejay programme, Corsi — who presents the grand final of ESC for Italy’s RAI — said: “Big success for Mika who is going to… He’s going to host Eurovision!”

The comedians Furio and Giorgio from the Trio Medusa, who were also in the studio, immediately corrected Corsi, saying: “X-Factor! What does Eurovision have to do with it?”

Corsi then suggested he’d had a slip of the lips: “Oops, maybe I missed something.”

Italians have pointed out that he did so in a joking tone. And our friends at EuroFestival News — the Italian site of reference for Eurovision — started their article with a very big caveat: “We say it immediately, it could be a joke.”

Even so, that bull has bolted from its enclosure, whipping up a storm of online chatter and speculation.

Gabriele Corsi claims Mika will host Eurovision 2022

Back in August the Cinguetterai Twitter account claimed that the British-Lebanese singer Mika, a judge on X Factor Italia, was in negotiations with Rai to host Eurovision 2022.

The same tweet also revealed that the recently departed legend Raffaella Carrà was allegedly part of an initial plan to host Eurovision with Mika.

Raffaella’s very public love affair with the contest made talk of her negotiations seem plausible. But Mika?

On several occasions, the “Love Today” singer declined offers to take part in the competition. Back in 2015, during an interview with French radio broadcaster RTL, Mika revealed that he was approached four times by the BBC to represent the UK. He declined the offer every time.

The same thing happened with France, where the artist spent his childhood.

In the same interview, Mika addressed his stance, stating that “most of the songs sent to the competition are shameful, they are pure s**t!”

It seemed inevitable that Mika’s team would issue a swift response — and they did.

On August 12 they denied the rumour to Rockol.it, firmly stating that there were no negotiations underway with Rai.

“Groundless rumors,” Mika’s team declared upon being contacted by Rockol.

Of course, we all evolve and grow and have changes of heart. Do you think Mika has changed his mind? Do you think Corsi was really joking? Could Mika’s agent have negotiated a massive fee? Let us know what you’re thinking down below.

***UPDATE***

On Thursday morning Corsi re-iterated that he was just joking on his radio programme — a day after his original comments sparked all the online chatter. This is what he said:

“Yesterday someone used the words we said and made a tweet. From there it became definite news. ‘This is who will conduct Eurovision’, the most classic Clickbait. And everyone was chasing each other to be the first to relaunch the news. Even some official sites, press organs and titled newspapers had to pick it up, chasing what was happening on social networks, without checking. […] Clearly the news is palatable, but it is not new. It is a rumour that has been going around for months that everyone knows, that everyone has reported. The question is, ‘Is it true?’ I say it’s not true.”

Mika’s management responded to the Il Messaggero newspaper: “We’ve only heard it on the radio and have been reading it since this summer, we don’t know anything else.”

It’a official. The ESC 2022 will be hosted in the Palasport Olimpico (also known as Pala Isozaki or Pala Alpitour) in Torino and the main host will be … MIKA! To those who said he was not to be chosen by RAI.

As already wrote, there are the administrative elections in Italy, exactly in the cities of Milan, Turin, Bologna and Rimini. First tier was the last weekend. Second tier in two weekends. The cities of Milano and Bologna have passed 50% so the mayor is already set. Turin must wait the second election. And probably RAI has in mind Torino as an hosting city. So, just because the city must cofund the event, RAI is waiting the new mayor to get the confirmation on the funds hw agrees to allocate. That’s it.

I looked up the wiki page on the 2021 Italian municipal elections, and realized Turin is one of 11 cities That hasn’t finished their elections yet.

In Italy, Administrative election for cities of more than 15k citizens have a two run election. First run and then, if no candidate reaches 50%+1 at the first run, the “ballottaggio” between the first two candidates, happening 15 days later. So by 20th of october we should have a mayor in Turin. I remind city of Turin has a debt already, so they must check cleverly how to raise 7 or 8 mln€.

I know Mika from his song, “Love today”, which became the soundtrack of a popular isotonic drink brand in my country. But matters arise when we know he’s British – it’s kinda impossible for him to host the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Italy, even though he speaks Italian fluently.

He works almost exclusively in Italy nowadays. I personally don’t think he will host Eurovision, but I do believe that the director of Rai 1 initially thought of having him as one of the 4 hosts. All the comments I’ve seen on this topic from other Italians were positive, everyone liked the idea of him hosting.

Ok. So let’s mark him with a fire mark forever. Most of the ESC fans seems to me to have zero democracy and zero tolerance. I also think in the past most of the songs were awful. Even though Verka Serducka is perceived as a true hero, for me his/her song was terrible. Not to speak about many other songs. If we go back in time some singers won because of the geographical coalitions. Come on.

Holy words. Finally someone writing something intelligent. The Eurofans can be bitter, evil, too much self centered. Mika said the ESC is crap? Well, sometimes I agree with him.

That was also very bad. Italian singers Mia Martini and Battiato not winning? Terrible.

He may have changed his mind, but in that case I’d like him to actually aknowledge those old comments, and so far he hasn’t said anything that could point to him changing his views.

As much I like some Mika’s song but him who was not fond of ESC suddenly wanted to be involve it is just money, career promotions (knowing he failed to chart internationally even he colab with famous artists like Ariana Grande before) and also maybe realized his music are no different. Mika’s most song are for LGBT and that’s why I cant understand his hypocrisy to hate the contest.

Again, so he must be marked for life and he cannot change his mind? Maybe he liked the fact Måneskin won the contest and not the standard disco pop song, copy and paste of zillions of other songs in the Eurovision before. What the hell. I also say that more than half of the songs in ESC are pure plastic, but I still like the ESC. I would prefer a million times a song by Mika than the one of Netta who won in 2019.

Mika has presented a TV Show in Italy which won the Rose d’Or price in 2017. He speaks italian. He own an home close to Florence. He is judge in X-Factor Italy. So why he wouldn’t take into consideration to present ESC in Italy? The fact he spoke so bad about ESC was to attend as a singer. Maybe doing the host is another job? And he will be one out of 3 or 4 hosts. So why not?

I would be very surprised if this rumor is legit, mostly because Mika has made it very clear he isn’t interested in the competition. Additionally, I personally do not associate him with Italian entertainment. Yes, he is a judge on an Italian TV show, but there are so many more famous and Italian presenters that are probably going to be selected. It was probably just a joke
