You can watch the event through your local EBU member European broadcaster, LOGO TV in the USA or SBS in Australia. Beware of the local commentary, though! You can also watch the live stream on the official Eurovision website or on YouTube (click the links above).

Last May in Stockholm, Jamala won Eurovision Song Contest for Ukraine with her song ‘1944’. The winning tune didn’t prove to be very popular outside of the contest. On the radio, streaming services and iTunes songs from Sweden, France, Australia and Russia did better. Swedish entry ‘If I Were Sorry’ by Frans easily outperformed everyone.

Anyway, Ukraine is hosting Eurovision Song Contest this year in it’s capital Kyiv. Ukraine hosted Eurovision Song Contest once before – in 2005, after Ruslana won Eurovision Song Contest 2004 with ‘Wild Dances’.
