The Eurovision Song Contest is finally here.
This year marks its 63rd year and will be hosted by last year’s winning country, Portugal, in Lisbon.
This will be the contest’s first time in Portugal and 43 countries will participate with Russia returning to the contest, before being whittled down to 26 for Saturday's grand final.
Russia was not involved last year due to the ongoing conflict between the two countries after Russia’s annexation of Crimea in 2014.
Ultimately though, Eurovision is all about having some fun and this year’s contest promises not to disappoint.
This year’s entry from the UK is SuRie who will be performing Storm.
SuRie has previoulsy appeared at Eurovision as a backing singer for Belgium's acts in 2015 and 2017.
She is a graduate of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts and now teaches at a performing arts school in London.
The UK initially had much success when it first began to participate in the Song Contest, up to and including 1998, we only finished outside of the top 10 twice.
Since then, however, the UK has been unable to recreate this success, only finishing within the top 10 twice. These acts were Jessica Garlick who finished joint third in 2002 and Jade Ewen who finished fifth in 2009 after performing It’s My Time alongside Lord Lloyd Webber who played the piano.
The song was written by Lloyd Webber and Diane Warren, who both finished the song in two hours.
Whether you’re the world’s biggest Eurovision fan or just like to laugh at all the wacky moments it provides each year, why not try a break inspired by the world famous song contest?
