Today marks 50 days until the Grand Final of the 67th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest – Europe’s biggest musical event! We are delighted to announce that, for the second year running, TikTok has been selected by the European Broadcasting Union as the Official Entertainment Partner for the Eurovision Song Contest.

Every year, the TikTok community embraces this iconic celebration of music and culture; sparking Eurovision trends that take off globally, inspired by the artists and songs that they love. With over 7.8B video views for #Eurovision already, 2023 is set to be an even bigger event than ever before.

This year, Eurovision will take place in the City of Liverpool on behalf of Ukraine, who won the Contest thanks to Kalush Orchestra in 2022. Ukraine will be celebrated and represented throughout the Eurovision Song Contest.

As the Official Entertainment partner, TikTok will once again become the go to destination for all things Eurovision. From specially created livestreams and exclusive performances in app, to music playlists and behind-the-scenes content.

TikTok will bring the community into the heart of what makes Eurovision the most watched, loved and celebrated music event in the world.

 

“Entertainment is at the heart of TikTok, and we’re excited to partner with the Eurovision Song Contest once again to bring the magic of the world’s largest live music event to our community. We’ve seen Eurovision legends start their journeys on TikTok, like the UK’s Sam Ryder and Eurovision songs thrive on the platform well beyond the contest itself, like Måneskin’s Zitti e buoni. We can’t wait to see what Eurovision 2023 has in store.”
