The UK’s entry for the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest will be chosen in collaboration with the global music management company behind Dua Lipa, Lana Del Rey and Ellie Goulding.

The BBC will work with TaP Music to select a song that will represent the UK in the contest, which will be held in Turin, Italy.

TaP has asked for “experienced live performers” to come forward and the chosen song will be released with a major record label.

Co-founder of TaP Music Ben Mawson said: “We’re really excited to be teaming up with the BBC for this event and will use Eurovision to authentically reflect and celebrate the rich, diverse and world-class musical talent the UK is globally renowned for.

“For many years, we’ve witnessed the United Kingdom not doing as well as we would’ve liked, when pop music is something we usually excel at. The simple fact is it’s time to show what we can do and the wonderful musical talent we have – ultimately we can’t blame politics.”

Previously, the UK has held song contests to choose the UK’s Eurovision representative, but after last year’s embarrassing nil points with James Newman’s Embers, the BBC has decided to make a change to the process.

Kate Phillips, controller of entertainment commissioning for the BBC, said: “In the UK our love for Eurovision is as big as ever and we have grand ambitions for the 2022 Contest, so we’re really excited to announce this collaboration that will enable us to tap into some great music talent.”

The 2021 contest was won by Italy’s rock band Maneskin, who originally featured on the Italian X Factor and went onto have top 10 singles in the UK charts.

The Eurovision Song Contest is due to take place in May 2022, with the Grand Final confirmed for May 14.
