The BBC are getting ready to show the 61st annual Eurovision Song Contest.
Last year's winner Måns Zelmerlöw will present the show from his native Sweden, while UK coverage of the event will be fronted by Scott Mills, Mel Giedroyc and Eurovision familiar Graham Norton.
"I think it’s just an escape from reality for a week, whether you are watching it on TV or in the host country," said Mills in an interview earlier this week. "You don’t hear about anything else that’s going on the in world and actually for a week it's nice. Also everyone is there for the same reason and it’s the friendliest place on earth."
42 countries will compete for the top prize over two semi-finals on Tuesday 10th and Thursday 12th May, with the grand final taking place on Saturday 14th May. As host nation, Sweden head straight through to the final alongside the Big Five countries France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
The UK entry comes from newcomers Joe and Jake, who were discovered on The Voice UK as solo artists and partnered up earlier this year. Their song 'You're Not Alone' won the nationwide televised competition Eurovision: You Decide back in February, allowing them to compete for the UK in May.
