Eurovision Takeover has received confirmation by BBC Alba to say Scotland will not be present in Gliwice this November.
BBC Alba are not looking beyond this year’s Eurovision Choir at present, although talks with the European Broadcasting Union have already taken place surrounding the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. BBC Alba had the following to say:
“Eurovision Choir represents our first involvement in an EBU event and we will be learning from that…
We are keen to experience this year and inform future involvements around it”.
It is important to remember that the Junior Eurovision Song Contest is a completely different Contest compared to Eurovision Choir, therefore a debut in 2020 might not happen. BBC Alba might decide to participate in one of the other Eurovision events first – such as Young Musicians or Young Dancers.
