We don't have long to wait until Eurovision lands in Liverpool, and now that all the competing countries' acts have been confirmed, it's officially time to get excited for the European song competition!


There'll be 37 acts taking part in this year's Eurovision Song Contest, the first to be held in the UK since 1998's competition in Birmingham – although we are hosting on behalf of Ukraine, which is unable to meet the hosting conditions due to the ongoing Russian invasion.

Taking place at Liverpool Arena, the Grand Final will be presented by BGT's Alesha Dixon, Ted Lasso star Hannah Waddingham and Ukrainian singer Julia Sanina, while Graham Norton is back on commentary duty with former Bake Off host Mel Giedroyc.

As for guest performers, Sam Ryder and Kalush Orchestra will be back, with the latter opening the Grand Final, and we know that the UK will be represented by Mae Muller this year, but what about the other competing acts?

Here's everything you need to know about this year's competitors and which have made it to the Eurovision 2023 final.
