Well everyone, this is it! It’s all of our Christmases, birthdays and holidays rolled into one because for one night the focus is on Europe, the music and the show! Yes, tonight sees the grand final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 take place, and what a final it promises to be!
26 acts will be fighting it out for the title in what is surely the most competitive final for a number of years, with numerous potential winners in the competition. Currently, it is Cyprus who head the odds at this moment, but of course anything can happen in Eurovision, and Israel remain a threat, alongside Norway and France and surprise packages in Lithuania and Ireland. And let’s not count out the previous favourites of Estonia, Bulgaria and Sweden, among others!
There’s set to be a lot to analyse, so we will be live an hour before the grand final to prepare you adequately for the evenin that lies ahead, as well as going live straight after a winner is chosen so that we can de-construct everything that happened in Lisbon!
