In a statement, TaP Music said that it was “so proud” of 2022 and 2023 UK entrants Sam Ryder and Mae Muller but added that it was “time to pass the baton back”.

The BBC partnership produced Ryder’s song Space Man, which vaulted the singer to second place in 2022 – equalling the best position that a UK act had achieved since Katrina And The Waves won in 1997.

TaP Music also helped to select Muller, who placed second to last (25th) in this year’s competition, which was held in Liverpool’s M&S Bank Arena.

A statement from TaP Music read: “It’s been brilliant working with the BBC this last two years, but for now, we think it is time to pass the baton back.”

It added: “We are thrilled that Eurovision in the UK has a bigger and wider audience than ever before and to have been part of the UK hosting it in Liverpool with Ukraine this year was an incredible moment for us, showing the unifying power and importance of popular culture.

“We’re so proud of Sam and Mae for representing the UK so wonderfully and are enjoying watching their careers flourish as a result.

“We wish the BBC the best of luck with ongoing success and continuing to build the excitement and audience in the UK.

“We believe Eurovision is one of the greatest live music shows on the planet and hope that many more artists, new or established, will see the huge opportunity it brings, and we know there is room for even more growth of the format, both in the UK and beyond.”

TaP Music manages artists including: French singer-songwriter Christine And The Queens; American pop artist Caroline Polachek; English vocalist Ellie Goulding; and Video Games singer Lana Del Rey.

The Eurovision Song Contest 2024 will be held in Sweden after the country’s 2023 entrant Loreen won the competition with the song Tattoo.

The contest will be held on the 50th anniversary of the country’s first triumph: Abba’s 1974 victory with Waterloo.
