We are finally here – the grand final of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest lies just around the corner, and we’ve now had time to digest which 26 countries will compete for the title.

The first dress rehearsal of the grand final takes place this afternoon from 14:00 CET at the Altice Arena in Lisbon, Portugal, with all 26 finalists taking part.
