Brace yourselves for a night of high camp: Eurovision’s back!
It’s time to hang out the bunting and get those flags flying as the stage is set for the camp pop-fest that is Eurovision!
Live from Tel Aviv, Israel, Graham Norton is in the commentary box once again, introducing the final 26 acts who’ll all be hoping to sing their way to victory.
Graham’s got ten years under his belt now and is more enthusiastic than ever. As he told TV Times: “I think most of the big changes happened before I joined but delivering the jury vote followed by the phone vote is genius.
“Every year is a nailbiter now! And every year delivers something memorable – good or bad!”
Naturally, all domestic eyes will be on Michael Rice, the 21-year-old singer from Hartlepool who’s determined to do the UK proud with his epic power ballad Bigger Than Us.
A bit of trivia for all you Eurovision fact fans: Michael was born in 1997, the year the UK last won Eurovision with Katrina and the Waves’ Love Shine a Light. Could Michael be the one to break our Eurovision curse?
