Eurovision will air on the BBC and be hosted by singer Alesha Dixon, Ted Lasso actress Hannah Waddingham and Ukrainian singer Julia Sanina alongside returning favourite Graham Norton, the comedian and talk show host.
The UK will host Eurovision in 2023, as 2022 winners Ukraine are unable to host the song contest following Russia’s invasion.
Ukraine’s Kalush Orchestra won the song contest last May, while the UK’s Sam Ryder was the runner-up with his hit song Space Man.
Traditionally, Ukraine would be the next host but, due to the conflict in the country, the UK will step up to host instead.
Here is everything we know about when the contest is, where Eurovision 2023 will be held, and how to get tickets.
When is the Eurovision Song Contest 2023?
The Eurovision Song Contest 2023 will kick off on May 9 with the first semi-final.
The second semi-final will take place two days later, on May 11.
And the winner of Eurovision 2023 will be crowned at the end of the final on May 13.
Where is the Eurovision Song Contest being held?
It has been revealed that Liverpool will host this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. The event will take place in the 11,000-capacity M&S Bank Arena.
The announcement that Liverpool beat Glasgow to host the competition was made by Graham Norton on the BBC’s The One Show.
Birmingham hosted Eurovision in 1998 – the last time it took place in the UK – but it has also been hosted by London, Edinburgh, and Brighton.
Britain last won the competition in 1997.
