Dua Lipa and Lana Del Rey's management to source UK's Eurovision entrant

Dua Lipa is “happy” to “lend” her manager to the United Kingdom’s 2022 ‘Eurovision Song Contest’ entrant.

The BBC has partnered with TaP Mu – who also manage the likes of Lana Del Rey and Ellie Goulding – to scout a pop star to compete at the televised song contest, which will be held at the PalaOlimpico in Turin, Italy after Rome’s Maneskin won the 2021 competition with ‘Zitti E Buoni’.

And their entry single is set to be released on a major record label to further boost the nation’s chances of victory.

And ‘Levitating’ hitmaker Dua, 26, said: “I’m a proud Brit whilst also being a proud Kosovan … I’m happy to lend my manager to the cause… I’ll be cheering them on.”

The UK once again suffered a major blow after James Newman – the brother of ‘Love Me Again’ hitmaker John Newman – scored nil points in May with his performance of ‘Embers’ in Rotterdam.

Co-founder of TaP Mu 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 mual 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 mu is something we usually excel at. The simple fact is it’s time to show what we can do and the wonderful mual talent we have – ultimately we can’t blame politics.”

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 mu talent.”

The managing director for BBC Studios, Suzy Lamb, added: “BBC Studios are proud to once again be producing the coverage of the biggest mu competition in world.

“We’re excited to be collaborating with TaP Mu. Their expertise in managing world class artists and finding huge international hit records speaks for itself and we look forward to working with them on the UK act and song for the 2022 contest.”
