Delay in host city for Eurovision, as Aussie entries closing.
"Please keep the songs coming in!” says producer Paul Clarke, while Italy is yet to declare 2022 host city.
Italian broadcaster Rai is yet to announce the host city for Eurovision 2022.
Speaking at a press conference this week, Rai1’s director Stefano Coletta said: “Rai is working very seriously and very rigorously on Eurovision. A committee of Rai professionals has been set up and is working hard on the city. We are a bit late in choosing the city for Eurovision 2022 because we have to do things with great transparency and precision.”
Bologna, Milan, Pesaro, Rimini and Turin are believed to be in contention.
Meanwhile song entries to represent Australia are closing on Sunday.
Creative Director of Eurovision: Australia Decides, Paul Clarke said: “We are delighted that we’ve already received a few hundred songs, and we’re expecting just as many for the final week. We’ve started to work with some of the songwriters to place songs with some very exciting artists. Please keep the songs coming in!”
There are no restrictions on the number of songs composers and songwriters, both published and unpublished, can submit.
Songs will be shortlisted and announced later this year, along with the ten Australian artists set to compete for their shot to represent Australia on the world’s biggest stage.
You can submit songs here until Sunday 26 September at 23:59pm AEST.
