Eurovision 2019 Live Stream: How to watch the grand final online
Eurovision 2019: Our guide has the start time, channel guide and favourites for the Eurovision Song Contest taking place in Tel Aviv this Saturday night.
Prosecco and nibbles at the ready guys, it’s time to get way too invested in the annual camp classic; the Eurovision Song Contest. With the semi-finals out of the way, we’re all set for Saturday night’s Grand Final in the Israeli capital Tel Aviv.
The UK’s interests are represented by 21-year-old Michael Rice from Hartlepool. His song Bigger Than Us could give us our first win in the competition since Katrina And The Waves swept to victory with Love Shine A Light back in 1997.
However, given the traditionally partisan voting, and the fact most of Europe is still pretty pissed at us over Brexit, we’d be surprised if young Michael brings the title back to the North East. That scepticism is also reflected in the betting odds, with poor Ricey among the outliers at 150/1.
