UK 2017 Eurovision entry Lucie Jones
The 2017 Eurovision Song Contest hosts are Oleksandr Skichko, Volodymyr Ostapchuk, and Timur Miroshnychenko.

Following the artists’ parade and an introduction from the hosts, the show will begin as 26 acts take to the stage in a bid for Eurovision glory.

In the Grand Final, juries and viewers from all 42 participating countries can vote again, after the 26 finalists have performed.

Once the voting window has closed the presenters will call upon spokespersons in all 42 countries and ask them to reveal their jury points live on air.

Next, viewers’ points from all 42 countries will be added up, and revealed from the lowest to the highest, culminating into a climax that will eventually reveal the winner of the 62nd Eurovision Song Contest.

The winner will perform once again, and take home the iconic glass microphone trophy.

Eurovision 2017 airs tonight in the UK from 8PM on BBC One.

The show is due to conclude at 11:25PM but has often overran in past years – in 2016 the winner was not revealed until around 11:40PM.

As well as the TV cast, you can also listen in via BBC Radio 2 with Ken Bruce from 8PM as well.
