What is Eurovision?

Eurovision is an annual international song competition that brings together countries from all over Europe (and some outside of Europe too!). Each country selects a performer or group to represent them, and they compete with an original song on a stage in front of a live audience and a panel of judges.

The song contest has been running for over six decades, and it’s known for its flashy performances, over-the-top costumes, and catchy tunes that get stuck in your head for weeks. Eurovision has a huge following worldwide, and it’s a chance for countries to showcase their unique music and culture, while also celebrating unity and diversity.

In 2023, the 67th Eurovision Grand Final takes place in Liverpool on Saturday 13 May.
