Eurovision-2018: previous year participants sang a song of Salvador Sobral

Eurovision-2018: previous year participants sang a song of Salvador Sobral

The annual Eurovision Song Contest has always been an global spectacle. "And if I succeed, it will be fantastic for me and for me, this is victory", answered Netta to the question about how the singer would feel if you are not going to win the competition and become the second. They left us last for a reason.

The Eurovision Song Contest semifinals take place in Lisbon on Tuesday, May 8 and Thursday, May 10, the grand final on Saturday May 12, 2018.

The Project Manager of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, Gert Kark, added: "The preparations of the upcoming contest are going very well, even though at the moment we're very busy with the Eurovision Song Contest but, as we started working very early with BTRC, we've already progressed a lot".

As "a proud Brit" representing the United Kingdom on Saturday night, SuRie will be singing her song Storm.

The BBC presenter has warned that this year's show will be "on a budget" with no frills and viewers will see the song contest in a more stripped back version because Lisbon "don't have money".

SuRie said about her song: "Storm is a smash!"

Saara had tried three times to enter the competition in the past but was always second best.

Last year, she returned to Team Belgium as musical director for 2017 entry City Lights by Blanche.

But what are her chances of winning?

As a member of the so-called "Big Five", Germany gets to side-step the semi-finals and he'll perform directly in Saturday's final with You Let Me Walk Alone.

With diplomatic relations between the United Kingdom and Russian Federation at their coolest for decades, this weekend's Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon could offer a chance for both countries to forgive, or punish, each other in front of millions of TV viewers.
