The 2022 Eurovision Song Contest generated more than 75 million unique viewers on YouTube across all Eurovision content in 232 territories worldwide, with Latin American countries among the top-performing markets for non-participating nations.
Among those countries, Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Mexico saw the highest content views on YouTube which totaled nearly 400,000 hours viewing combined.
In a press release earlier today, it was announced that Eurovision Song Contest Latin America will be produced by Voxovation’s Christer Björkman, Anders Lenhoff, Ola Melzig, Peter Settman and Greg Lipstone, the producers of American Song Contest and Eurovision Song Contest Canada.
Producers will begin the search for a host city among the top-performing Latin American markets for Eurovision Song Contest in the coming months.
Eurovision Song Contest Executive Supervisor Martin Österdahl said:
‘Following on from the launch of the American Song Contest, and with plans underway for Eurovision Song Contest Canada next year, the European Broadcasting Union is thrilled to be now working with Voxovation on bringing the excitement and magic of the Eurovision Song Contest to Latin America. The unique Eurovision format finds new fans across the globe every year and we can’t wait to expand the brand in this hugely diverse part of the world.’
Peter Settman and Greg Lipstone, on behalf of the Voxovation producing team, said:
‘Fans across Latin America have consistently shown up and showed out for the Eurovision Song Contest brand, and Eurovision Song Contest Latin America is the embodiment of that fervent passion, as well as a continuation of the broad vision we, the producing team, have for Eurovision as a global brand.’
