Eurovision 2023

The 67th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest is taking place in Liverpool, the United Kingdom. It sees the participation of 37 countries over two semi-finals and one Grand Final. The contest has travelled to the United Kingdom following a decision of the EBU not to organise the contest in Ukraine due to the ongoing Russian invasion. Last year the band Kalush Orchestra won Eurovision 2022 in Turin with the entry Stefania.

The show continues this Thursday 11 May with the second semi-final. Sixteen acts will be competing for the last ten qualifying spots for the Grand Final:

  • Semi final 1 – 9 May 2023
  • Semi final 2 – 11 May 2023
  • Grand Final – 13 May 2023
