Am I right in saying that ITV Studios France do some or all of the production for it?

Yep. And definitely one of the better produced National Finals. To expect Melfest UK is unrealistic but Destination Eurovision is not an unrealistic benchmark for Auntie to meet.

I’ll reserve judgment till we see this year’s NF but I’d love to see Eurovision tendered out to an indie. More pressure to deliver a high quality show and songs, better experience from working on similar shows etc. Like ITV in France if they don’t deliver they lose the contract.

Well, now Cowell's company is producing for the BBC, it's not unrealistic to suggest that the NF is tendered out to SyCo. Unrivalled experience in the genre.

Not sure SyCo are interested in simply winning the production contracts type of tendering of an existing BBC format. If they were able to win a commission for a new or imported format to choose the entry they might be more willing.

Yes it's an ITV Studios France production


Endemol Shine had its eye on a selection programme for a while. Then after ITV Studios France swiped The Voice off Endemol Shine, they bagged Destination Eurovision too.

C'est la vie.


Though, to be fair, The Voice is an ITV Studios format now they own Talpa, so that isn't entirely unexpected. As ITV Studios expand internationally, local ITV Studios production operations in other countries have replaced other production companies in Europe who previously produced The Voice (under previous legacy deals that have now expired).

Unclear as to who or what they were but demonstrators with placards invaded the stage at Destination Eurovision immediately after Netta performed Toy. Show continued as demonstrators were removed.

They need to sort their security out. It's absolutely abominable. They've had some form of 'stage invasion' an average of once a year recently, and now this tonight. Terrible security in this day and age.
Guess who's big in the back time.
