By when must the British entry be confirmed, and how can a song be submitted?

For Eurovision 2022, the UK entry is being organised by TaP Music. They will be internally selecting the act and are not accepting public submissions.

Dear Robyn,
Was last years act , which received nil pointe, also internally selected? We had a video of our song ready by 1st September, the date we understood at the time to be the deadline, then found no way of submitting it, to the BBC, having had no idea of the new role of TaP Music. We have gone to considerable lengths , both of our time and energy , also financially, after ascertaining that our work would be welcomed by the selection committee, and ask only that it can be submitted.

The rehearsals start on the 8th of May (aka. this upcoming Saturday). I can’t speak for Wiwibloggs, but the official Eurovision channel will no doubt upload the rehearsal footage like they always do.

It looks like the 2021 grand final is going to be about four hours long, so it should finish around 11am NZ time. Enjoy your Sunday morning party!

I assume they’re just disqualified, since they haven’t submitted valid entry before March 15th

Guys from the US, how you are going to watch Eurovision this year? This article https://medium.com/@grant.cerr/how-to-watch-eurovision-in-the-us-2019-free-705712ed0ab4 says that it is only possible with a VPN. Is that true?

I think all countries must have sent the final version of their entries to EBU in the 13th of March, but they can reveal it to the public whenever they like.

Wait… so I’m just wondering… why does Germany get to reveal their official entry a month (or about a month) after the deadline for all entries to be revealed? :/

Hey Wiwibloggs, could you insert this calendar in the “Eurovision 2017” section along with the Participating countries list?

It’s a little hard to find the calendar, but it’s really useful 🙂

Wiwifriends, isn’t running order announced on 5th April? You’ve written 8th April, and EBU has said it is going to be announced on Tuesday, ergo April 5th (today)

When’s the running order allocation draw? Austria’s in 14th but is it today or another day? I NEED to know, NEED to know, so my Eurovision Song Contest 2015 bracket will be complete. F**k the NBA Finals bracket. The ESC’s where it’s at!
