The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) said in a statement on Sunday that the final of the Eurovision Song Contest attracted the largest British television audience in the history of the event, reaching a peak of 11 million viewers.

Swedish singer Lauren won Eurovision 2023 on Saturday (13). The event was held in Liverpool, northern England, on behalf of last year’s champion Ukraine, which was unable to host this year due to Russia’s invasion.

The BBC said the final had a peak audience of 11 million, with an average of 9.9 million and an audience share of 63%.

“The fact that millions of people have tuned in to their news shows just how important Eurovision is,” BBC chief executive Kate Phillips said in a statement.

“Liverpool welcomed the world’s biggest singing competition with open arms and embraced it beyond all our expectations.”

The competition’s organizer, the European Broadcasting Union, estimated that more than 160 million people watched the competition worldwide, in line with figures for 2022.

British spectators saw the entrant, May Muller, in the penultimate twenty-fifth position.
