    The Eurovision Song Contest is nothing to do with the EU. It is a private arrangement between national broadcasters. The UK only gets through to to the finals each year because it is one of the sponsors of Eurovision so it gets a guaranteed place in the finals. It started out as a non-political song contest but voting has become very political over the years.

    The British public has, in the past, voted for the UK entry to the contest and the results have been abysmal. This is the same UK public who voted for Brexit.

    Voting in Eurovision will continue to be political and the whole contest is a bit camp but at least it is an opportunity to share SOMETHING with our near neighbours and other friends. Such shared cultural events have value and are worth preserving.

    No, many countries that participate in ESC are not in the EU. Some are not even in Europe geographically.

    Eurovision has participants from countries that are NOT members of EU, contestants that perform for countries they are not from (i.e.: France Gall for Luxembourg).

    Demanding country ceases to perform in a contest because they are leaving an economical union (allbeit controlled by naziland and France) is not very sensible

    No, they've been participating in the show since 1957 and they don't need to be a member of the EU to participate.

    The BBC should have stopped part funding this joke 30 years ago. As for not taking part, well that depends on who is footing the bill for participating.
