The Eurovision Song Contest 2023 is back with a bang.

April 25, 2023
The Eurovision Song Contest 2023 is back with a bang.

The Eurovision Song Contest is back for its 67th edition, with the slogan “United By Music“. This year’s theme is an homage to the partnership between the UK and Ukraine, who are jointly hosting the event. Music’s ability to bring people together-live is also celebrated through the theme, with the aim of uniting viewers from across the world.

The event is being held in Liverpool, UK, as a tribute to last year’s runners-up. The city won the bid against 20 other UK cities that applied to host the event. The contest will take place at the M&S Bank Arena, and for the first time, both semi-finals will be broadcast live on BBC One, with commentary from Graham Norton, Mel Giedroyc, Julia Sanina, Sam Quek, Hannah Waddingham, Timur Miroshnychenko, Alesha Dixon, Rylan, and Scott Mills. They will guide viewers through the semi-finals and the grand final, providing insights and interviewing the performers.

The first semi-final is set for Tuesday, May 9, while the second semi-final is on Thursday, May 11. The grand final will be held on Saturday, May 13. A total of 37 countries will participate in this year’s contest, with 31 competing in the semi-finals. The top 10 contestants from each semi-final will advance to the Grand Final on May 13th. The line-up for the semi-finals includes a mix of returning and new countries: Croatia, Ireland, Latvia, Malta, Norway, Portugal, Serbia, Azerbaijan, Czechia, Finland, Israel, Moldova, Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, Armenia, Belgium, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Greece, Iceland, Romania, Albania, Australia, Austria, Georgia, Lithuania, Poland, San Marino, and Slovenia.

The UK’s entry for Eurovision 2023 is Mae Muller, a 25-year-old singer who will perform “I Wrote A Song” on home turf in Liverpool. Muller expressed excitement about the opportunity, saying that representing the UK at Eurovision is a dream come true.

The Eurovision Song Contest is known for its over-the-top performances and memorable moments. Previous winners include the pop group ABBA, the famous singer Celine Dion, and the alt-rock band Måneskin. While the event primarily focuses on music, it also has cultural and political significance. The Eurovision Song Contest celebrates music, culture, and diversity. It brings people from different countries and backgrounds together-live, creating a sense of unity through the power of music. With the slogan “United By Music”, this year’s contest aims to remind us of the importance of coming together-live, especially during challenging times.

Be sure to tune in to starting the 9th of May 2023, on BBC One for another great Eurovision Song Contest. Bookmark this page to watch Eurovision 2023 live.
