Eurovision 2018: Armenia fails to make Grand Final

Eurovision 2018: Armenia fails to make Grand Final

It is the 31-year-old's first time performing at the song contest.

Singer SuRie will represent the United Kingdom with her song "Storms".

In an interview ahead of tonight's show, Netta admitted that the attention has been "embarrassing" for her.

Guy Sebastian, Dami Im and Isaiah have given it their best at Eurovision since 2015, and this year it's Jessica Mauboy's turn.

RTE Today and Nationwide reporter Colm Flynn took to Twitter to share the clip, originally from Derek Mooney, which was captioned "This man almost has a heart attack when Ireland gets through to the Eurovision final".

Since 2004, the European Broadcasting Union asks the host broadcaster to host semifinals, in order to filter all the countries that wish to participate.

The grand final takes place this Saturday.

Former Britain's Got Talent finalist Ryan O'Shaughnessy will represent Ireland with the song Together.

While sometimes Semi-Final commentators have to travel back home to see the Grand Final on television, Rylan has the opportunity to stay in Lisbon.

Just visit the Eurovision website during the broadcast and give artists an immediate thumbs up or the thumbs down during their time on stage.

43 countries will compete in the Eurovision Song Contest 2018.

Mauboy is clearly popular among worldwide media and fans in Portugal this year after being introduced to them as a guest performer in Denmark's 2014 contest.

She joked: "I'm of course jumping right in with the attitude that I can win the Eurovision Song Contest - or at least finish in second place!"
