Eurovision hopefuls prepare for first semi-final

09 Mai 2018

In case you missed it, Ireland got through to the final of the Eurovision, following the first semi-final on Tuesday evening. Every other country has to participate in two semi-finals and the 10 best head through, forming a final pool of 26 acts.

It included numerous favourites for the competition, such as Cyprus, Estonia, Israel and Czech Republic.

Malta will be competing in Thursday's Semi Final, and as pressure continues to build we're excited to see all the tricks Christabelle has up her sleeve. The final will be Saturday.

SuRie, whose real name is Susanna Marie Cork, will be performing her track Storm in Lisbon at the grand final on Saturday.

All aboard! Here's a rundown of people who are celebrating diversity at the Eurovision Song Contest 2018.

Ryan O'Shaughnessy has booked a place for Ireland in the Eurovision Song Contest Final in Lisbon, and the nation has been sharing their pride at him getting through. He won the contest in 1980, and when he returned to Eurovision seven years later, he triumphed once again. That previous Eurovision experience is serving her and the United Kingdom very well indeed.

Dana International's successor as Eurovision victor - Charlotte Nilsson (Charlotte Perrelli) in 1999 - didn't do much better, when she made a comeback in 2008.

Voters can vote by downloading the Eurovision app, calling or sending a text message, but are not allow to place a vote for their own country.

If you prefer to watch online, Eurovision 2018 will also be shown live on SBS On Demand, the broadcaster's web platform.
