Eurovision Song Contest 2014 live blog

Join Paul Jones from around 7:30pm for a sneak preview of this year's acts before the live action in Copenhagen kicks off and he invites you to making amusing comments about it


Good evening United Kingdom!


Welcome to our live blog of tonight’s 59th annual Eurovision Song Contest. The action from the Danish capital Copenhagen kicks off at 8pm on BBC1 but I’ll be here from, shall we say, 7:30pm with a veritable smorgasbord (no, wait, that’s Sweden) of camp, glitzy goodies to get you in the Euro mood, including sneak previews of all the weird and wonderful acts and their weird and wonderful songs.

In the meantime, read one Euro-fanatic’s predictions of the top five contenders (which include a bearded lady and none other than UK entry Molly) and print out your scorecard to get ready to play Eurovision Bingo!
