We seem to have another Eurovision event returning in 2023, as the EBU revealed that the competition is one of the co-productions the organization has planned for 2023.
3rd edition to be hosted by Latvia
The EBU recently held a pitching session for producers on the 10th of October, where it was revealed that they are pitching for Latvian broadcaster LTV, who hosted the very first edition of the competition in 2017 in Riga. At the time of writing, no further information about the competition’s return has been announced.
The 3rd edition of the competition was set to return to the stage in 2021, with Wales even confirming its participation. However, this did not push through, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Eurovision Choir so far
The competition debuted in 2017, in Riga, where the inaugural edition of the competition took place. 9 countries competed in the first edition of the competition, and they were Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, Germany, Hungary, Latvia, Slovenia, and Wales. Carmen Manet from Slovenia was the first winner of the competition.
After a year, the competition returned in 2019, and 10 countries participated in the 2nd edition of the competition, and they were Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Latvia, Norway, Scotland, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, and Wales. After the second round, where Slovenia, Latvia, and Denmark advanced, Vocal Line from Denmark won the second edition of the competition.
