As in recent year, the United Kingdom has kept its official plans for Eurovision quiet.
All we knew was that the broadcaster BBC has decided to collaborate with the label TaP Music in order to choose Eurovision 2022 artist and entry.
In a joint announcement, made by TaP Music and the BBC, it was revealed that the United Kingdom will reveal its cards for Eurovision 2022 tomorrow (Thursday, the 10th of March 2022)
It it still unknown whether we will get the song for Eurovision 2022, on only the details about who will represent the country.
However, the media is flooded with rumors at the last week.
All of them point out the singer-songwriter Sam Ryder as the chosen artist.
He will probably perform the song “Spaceman” (However, nothing is official!)
In January 2022, we have heard the following the statements from TaP Music management:
Ben Mawson (TaP Music) reacted:
We’re getting really close to making our final decision, we have lots of options and have been pleasantly surprised by how many wonderful artists, both new and more established want to be part of this process with us. Like us, they recognise that Eurovision is the biggest music TV opportunity in the world. It’s a tough decision with so many strong contenders, many with existing European fanbases, which is exciting. When we decide on the act, we will put an incredible team around the chosen act and look forward to sharing news shortly
Ed Millett, CEO of TAP Music, commented as well:
“The challenge has been finding a talent that has both an incredible voice – because live vocals to 200 million people is no easy feat – as well as having incredible stage presence and an unforgettable song – it is the Song Contest after all. The reason we want to do this, whether our act tops the leader board or not, is to do something special on stage that the UK can be proud of.”
Will it be Sam Ryder to represent the United Kingdom at Eurovision 2022?
