Which country should host? – Billboard

Earlier this week it was announced that the Eurovision Song Contest was to expand its brand and launch in Latin America.

Over the next few months, the producers will start looking for a host city to Eurovision Song Contest Latin America among the best performing Latin American markets, which include Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Mexico. The expansion comes after the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 generated high content views in Latin America for non-participating countries, according to the European Broadcasting Union (EBU).

News of the brand’s expansion comes a few weeks after the very first edition of American song contest – hosted by Snoop Dogg and Kelly Clarkson – ended its eight-week run on May 9, where K-pop star AleXa was crowned the winner of the first season. In May, it was also announced that Eurovision was expanding to Canada.
