Could the 63rd Eurovision Song Contest prove lucky for Cyprus?

This year however, the United Kingdom is represented by Eurovision: You Decide victor SuRie, and she's determined to win.

Though Ireland is still the most successful country at the contest, with seven wins, we haven't been in the Eurovision since we came in last place back in 2013.

Has Rylan already decided upon his favourites for this year's contest?

He will now go on to the final on Saturday 12 May. But only 10 of those entries will be continuing on to the final.

Since 2004, the European Broadcasting Union asks the host broadcaster to host semifinals, in order to filter all the countries that wish to participate. "It's a dynamic combination of a more intimate, piano lead, singer songwriter style start, building into this anthemic, soulful pop party!" 200 million people worldwide are expected to watch this year's edition of Eurovision. It's bonkers but it is the best kind of bonkers.

Eurovision 2018 airs Saturday BBC at 8pm.

So, then it's safe to say Jessica Mauboy is lapping up every minute of the Eurovision limelight in Lisbon this week.

Ryan O'Shaughnessy sang Together. Love that messaging, Jess.

The second semi-final will be on Friday May 11, from 5am AEST and features our girl Jess up against 17 other nations for a spot in the Grand Final.

SuRie and her song Storm, written by Nicole Blair, Gil Lewis and Sean Hargreaves, will head to Lisbon in May after being chosen in a live show. But you can hear them.
