by Harry Darby 47 views

Viewers can expect an interactive element to coverage provided by the BBC in the United Kingdom from this year's Eurovision Song Contest in Moscow, including singalong lyrics and email interaction with the commentators during three packed shows.

The BBC has once again invested a lot of creativity in its coverage this year, providing fans with a number of ways to enjoy the shows. By pressing the red button on their TV remote during any of the three broadcasts of Eurovision week, viewers will be able to enjoy the familiar singalong lyrics, as well as read quirky facts about the countries performing, and get the chance to have their Eurovision party messages printed on the screen.

During the two semifinals, viewers will be able to send their opinions of the performances direct to the commentator's box via the email address [email protected] , with a selection being read out by commentators Paddy O'Connell and Sarah Cawood. Sarah will also be backstage with United Kingdom hope Jade Ewen, and speaking to some of Tuesday's qualifiers in the second semifinal show.

Additionally, Radio 2 commentator Ken Bruce will be presenting his breakfast show on Friday, 15th May direct from the Russian capital, reporting on all things Eurovision both on- and backstage. The show will be aired from 9.30am (GMT) on Radio 2.
