    The Eurovision Song Contest 2017 will be the 62nd edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. It will take place in the International Exhibition Centre in Kiev, Ukraine, following Ukraine's victory at the 2016 contest in Stockholm with the song "1944", written and performed by Jamala. This will be the second time the contest takes place in Kiev, after 2005. The contest is expected to consist of two semi-finals on 9 and 11 May and the final on 13 May 2017.

    Forty-two countries will participate in the 2017 contest. Portugal and Romania are to return to the contest, both having been absent from the 2016 edition.

    So far confirmed for Saturday are.....

    Ukraine: O.Torvald - Time
    France: Alma - Requiem
    Germany: Levina - Perfect Life
    Italy: Franceso Gabbani - Occidentali's Karma
    Spain: Manel Navarro - Do It For Your Lover
    United Kingdom: Lucie Jones - Never Give Up On You

    Two semi finals (tonight and tomorrow) of 18 countries which the top ten countries go through each night to Saturdays final. Altogether 26 countries will compete on Saturday.

    Of course the real story here is that Europe hates us now and we will probably be given negative points.

    Desmond Morris referenced on tonight's semi final. Also celebrating diversity by having no slightly annoyed shiny woman host this year.

    Competing alongside the already-qualified "big five" are, in no particular order: Moldova, Azerbaijan, Greece, Sweden, Portugal, Poland, Armenia, Australia, Cyprus and Belgium.

    I forgot Australia was still doing this. Hasn't had the same level of media interest the third time.

    Sadly it's come round a few weeks too early for Big Rolf to bust out his didgeridoo and do Two Little Boys again.

    Everyone set for tonight's entertainment then? I've been out and bought frankly too much beer and snacks. Hopefully Mrs and N00blet will fuck off around 1030ish.

    Going in blind, I only just read the Russian spacker was banned from entering Ukraine for example.

    Don't know much, but I am looking forward to Italy.

    Started on the lager, next it's wine, then gin to finish proceedings.
