The Eurovision 2023 final is well under way on BBC One, with all 26 Eurovision 2023 contestants having performed.


The 67th final opened with Austria's Teya and Salena, and the UK's very own Mae Muller wrapped up the performances with I Wrote a Song.

Based on Eurovision 2023 odds Sweden's Loreen is a favourite to be crowned this year's winner, but it's up to the votes to determine who will be this year's champ.

The public votes make up 50 per cent of the total vote, with the other half determined by a professional jury in each participating country. So, it's important to get your votes in!

As well as this, each person can vote up to 20 times, however, voters will be unable to select their own country’s entry which means UK residents cannot vote for Mae Muller sadly, but there are 25 other countries to choose from.

Read on for everything you need to know about Eurovision 2023 and how to vote for your favourite act.
