Europe is gearing up for the biggest music competition of the year, the Eurovision Song Contest, which is set to take place in Liverpool, UK.

Tonight marks the official start of the event with the first semi-final, featuring strong contenders and fan-favourite songs.

A total of 15 countries will compete for a chance to secure a spot in the grand final on Saturday, with the first semi-final scheduled for tonight at 10 pm. Among the big favourites to win are Finland and Sweden.

Cyprus, represented by Andrew Lambrou, will appear in the second semi-final, on Thursday, May 11, along with Greece.
