Eurovision host Graham Norton has described the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) as ruling ‘with an iron fist’ after its decision to block Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky from speaking at the final.
The presenter hailed a ‘golden age’ of the competition on the eve of the grand final in Liverpool and said he had no involvement in the decision not to let Mr Zelensky address the worldwide audience of 160 million.
The EBU, which produces the event, said on Thursday night that it had declined Mr Zelensky’s request to speak on Saturday over fears it could politicise the contest.
‘The Eurovision Song Contest is an international entertainment show and governed by strict rules and principles which have been established since its creation,’ their statement begins.
‘As part of these, one of the cornerstones of the contest is the non-political nature of the event.
‘This principle prohibits the possibility of making political or similar statements as part of the contest.’

The EBU went on to commend Mr Zelensky for his ‘laudable intentions’.
At a press conference on Friday, Norton said: ‘As far as I know, it’s an EBU decision and, as we know, the EBU, they rule with an iron fist so what they say goes.’
He added he was not able to laugh at the acts in the contest any more because the standard has improved so much since he started commentating on the show in 2009.
He told journalists: ‘I personally think we’re going through a golden age of Eurovision.

‘I really think the shows of the last few years have been great, really good songs.
‘There was always kind of a nostalgic thing and a kitschy thing and a campy thing and there’s a little bit of that left but, actually, now it’s just a bunch of great pop songs.
‘It is a serious song contest. I still have a joke from the commentary box but they’re different jokes.
‘You can’t laugh at the acts any more because they’re so good.’
