London (AP) -- The 2023 Eurovision Song Contest will be staged in either Glasgow or Liverpool, the BBC said Tuesday, after Britain was asked to hold the event on behalf of designated host country Ukraine.

Scotland’s biggest city and the birthplace of The Beatles were named the two finalists from seven U.K. cities that applied. The BBC which will broadcast the contest, said a final decision will be made within weeks.
