QUIZ: Guess the lyrics of the 1st Eurovision 2018 semi-finalists

A sign of things to come? Jessica Mauboy will have an iconic dress from her

Israel's Netta is among the favourites for the main prize after competing in the first semi-final with her track Toy, which has a powerful message of female empowerment - and a quirky chicken dance. "I love Eurovision so I have been searching for the right opportunity to be part of it". San Marino have only ever reached the final once... so catch the entry while you can on Thursday.

Saara had tried three times to enter the competition in the past but was always second best.

The fact is that when Mikolas came to Kiev to sing at the National selection for Eurovision, the guy was late a little before his speech. With Myf Warhurst and Joel Creasey commentating on both semi-finals and the Grand Final, watching on the free-to-air channel will be a blast.

The Eurovision Grand Final takes place Saturday, May 12 in Lisbon. The final will be Saturday.

Now it wouldn't be Eurovision without a technical hitch and if you look carefully, you might notice that the middle section of the lighting frame behind SuRie made a decision to go on strike.

An appeal was made to Mohammad Rafi Bhat, a university sociology teacher who only went underground with the rebels on Friday. However, the terrorists did not stop fir and responded with bullets, injuring an Army jawan and a policeman.

RTE Today and Nationwide reporter Colm Flynn took to Twitter to share the clip, originally from Derek Mooney, which was captioned "This man almost has a heart attack when Ireland gets through to the Eurovision final".

If you reckon you won't be able to wake up at 5am, or will be unable to watch Eurovision this year, there's also a full re-run of the day's performance at 7:30pm on SBS.

Warhurst's co-host, comedian Joel Creasey, says there is a strong feeling behind the scenes that Australia has earned its stripes off the back of strong showings from past entrants. We'll provide a livestream link through on Sunday morning if you're hunting around, so chuck a bookmark on this page and get ready for the world's most insane song contest.
