Liverpool was picked as the city in 2023 after a search spearheaded by the BBC. Cities across the UK bid to host it and were judged across a range of criteria.

It included a venue capable of accommodating at least 10,000 spectators, a press centre for a maximum of 1,500 journalists, easy access to an international airport, and hotel accommodation for at least 2,000 delegates, journalists, and spectators.

The shortlisted cities included Birmingham, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle, Sheffield and Glasgow. It came down to Glasgow and Liverpool with the home of the Beatles being ultimately selected.

It is up to the host country to select the city for the Eurovision song contest.
