Cyprus and Israel among favourites to win

Cyprus and Israel among favourites to win

It is 21 years since the United Kingdom last won the Eurovision Song Contest and nine years since it finished inside the top 10.

"It still felt nerve-wracking, but with that kind of crowd, there was just so much love".

He appeared to shout something before being wrestled off the stage by security.

The show will be broadcast on BBC One and hosted by Graham Norton, with the victor expected to be announced at 11.35pm this evening.

"Well I don't know what will happen now, whether we will get another performance or not".

The incident left SuRie without a microphone for at least ten seconds and she was forced to clap along as cameras cut to fans in the audience.

SuRie declined the opportunity to perform again.

Eurovision 2018 is well underway - and it's been a lively competition so far, with the UK's entry having to contend with a rowdy stage invader.

Australia's Jessica Mauboy during rehearsals ahead of the Eurovision 2018 grand final. Netta Barzilai, Israel's singer, with the song Toy is on the 2 place (index - 3,75).

The favorite of the bookmakers after the first semi-final was the 31-year-old Greek pop singer of Albanian origin, Eleni, Purara, the representative of Cyprus, with the song "Fuego".

Highlights will undoubtedly include Denmark's red-bearded Rasmussen, whose song is based on a legend about a Viking who refused to fight, and a special dress worn by Estonian soprano Elina Nechayeva which flows down from her waist, beyond her feet and out across the stage.

The dress came to life with lighting displays and laser effects as she sung.

Eurovision was first held in 1956 with the aim of uniting Europe after World War II.

Britain will be represented SuRie, who will be singing "Storm" to an audience of more than 200 million people worldwide.

Coming after last year's much-seen stage invasion, the question has to be asked: How does this keep happening?

Noway's Alexander Rybak is a previous Eurovision victor, but he seems unlikely to make it to the top a second time with his offering this year, That's How You Write A Song.

No country can vote for its own contestant.

But Portugal - which hosting this year's event because its entry, Salvador Sobral, won with a restrained solo ballad last year in Ukraine - is putting on a show with stylish, elegant performances by a strong field of competitors.
