How many countries in Eurovision 2023? Acts and songs for contest as Sweden tipped to win

The Eurovision Song Contest has now officially kicked off in Liverpool, with fans beside themselves with excitement for the annual event and everything that comes with it.

Eurovision celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2015, meaning iut is now just two years away from its seventh decade and interest in the competition shows absolutely no signs of waning. Last year’s title was won by Ukraine, after a landslide victory for Kalush Orchestra in the public vote, after the YUK’s Sam Ryder was the clear favourite with the juries.

But, while the Ukraine won on the night in Turin, it was ultimately decided that there weren’t in a position to host this year’s contest, due to the conflict with Russia over the last year. That meant the honour of staging Eurovision 2023 fell on the shoulders of the UK and the BBC, with Liverpool being selected as host city in the autumn.
