Mika and his team have already flatly denied that he’ll be hosting Eurovision 2022 in Italy. But another weekend has brought another statement from the British-Lebanese singer.
It came last Sunday in an interview published by the French newspaper Le Journal du dimanche, where a journalist asked Mika once again if the rumour is true.
Mike is clearly over it. He said: “I really don’t know what you are talking about. You must have read wrongly — change your glasses!”
Mika denies Eurovision 2022 hosting rumours
It is, of course, a predictable outcome given Mika’s negative opinion about Eurovision. On the current edition of X Factor, Mika reinforced this sentiment several times, once calling a singer’s choreography “too Eurovision-y” — in a negative way.
The “Grace Kelly” hitmaker was even worried about competitors on his team choosing Eurovision tracks — yet another sign that his opinion on the song contest has not changed since he previously told French journalists that “most of the songs sent to the competition are shameful, they are pure s**t!”
Rumours about the Eurovision 2022 hosts have been spreading for months now.
One of the most talked about names has undoubtedly been Mika. He is, in fact, a great candidate, given his international background and close ties with Italy, where he’s been a judge of X Factor for five editions.
Speaking on his show Chiamate Roma Triuno Triuno, he said: “Big success for Mika who is going to… He’s going to host Eurovision!”
He later said that he was just joking.
