The international song contest, Eurovision, kicks off today from Turin, Italy. The competition is the world’s most-watched annual music event and features songwriters from 40 countries. More than 183 million viewers across 36 markets tuned into the 2021 competition.

 

Two semi-finals will be held to determine the final lineup. Contestants from the Big Fiveβ€”Spain, the UK, Italy, Germany, and Franceβ€”are automatically advanced. Both industry experts and viewers decide the winners of the contest, known for its over-the-top costumes.

 

Ukraine is this year’s favourite to win, represented by Kalush Orchestra. The group blends hip-hop with traditional Ukrainian music in their track β€œStefania,” a song written for the writer’s mother, which has taken on new meaning for the war-torn country. Russia has been removed from the contest.

 

An American version, American Song Contest, wrapped up last night. K-pop singer AleXa, representing Oklahoma, took home the top prize.

 

The first of the semi-final shows will kick off tonight, with 17 countries competing for one of the 10 places in Saturday's Grand Final.

 

The countries performing are Albania, Bulgaria, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Netherlands, Slovenia, Switzerland, Ukraine, Austria, Croatia, Denmark, Greece, Iceland, Norway, Portugal and Armenia.

 

Rylan Clark and Scott Mills will be commentating.

 

The second semi-final will take place on Thursday 12th May and will see performances from Australia, Azerbaijan, Cyprus, Finland, Georgia, Malta, San Marino, Serbia, Belgium, Czech Republic, Estonia, Ireland, Israel, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Poland, Romania and Sweden.

 

  • The first semi-final will air tonight on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer at 8 pm
  • The second semi-final will air Thursday 12th May on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer at 8 pm
  • The Eurovision Grand Final will be broadcast on BBC One, BBC iPlayer, BBC Radio 2 and BBC Sounds from 8 pm on Saturday 14th May

Gosh! Ukraine is the favourite? I can't imagine why.

Getting dragged by my tongue from Land's End to John O'Groats would be preferable to watching Eurovision.

Confession. I used to watch Eurovision and did like Sandie Shaw winning for UK with "Puppet On A String"; Mary Hopkin coming 2nd with Macca`s "Goodbye"; and Dana`s Irish winning "All Kinds Of Everything".

Sure Ukraine are favourites and why not with what the country is going through; but Eurovision is now a joke and I shan`t be watching...

I haven't watched it for years since it became a political competition. I've always said that it would make no difference if Queen, The Who or The Rolling Stones were representing us, we wouldn't win again. I'm not into watching international humiliation. No thanks.

I'm glad Eurovision could unite us all together for a common cause - even if it is to be anti-Eurovision πŸ€£πŸ˜…
