Never in the history of the Eurovision Song Contest, the country missed out on a spot in the final.

43 countries in total are competing at Eurovision in 2018.

Ladies and gentlemen! Our hearts beat from Lisbon, where the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 is now taking place.

Held since 1956, Eurovision is the longest-running worldwide song competition broadcast on television.

It comes after Jessica told Stellar magazine that she still gets nervous before taking to the stage.

Could the 63rd Eurovision Song Contest prove lucky for Cyprus?

Now it wouldn't be Eurovision without a technical hitch and if you look carefully, you might notice that the middle section of the lighting frame behind SuRie made a decision to go on strike. "I'm working hard and I'm trying to do my best, and very soon there will be new songs from me".

As reported, Ukraine on "Eurovision-2018" it will present with the song "Under the Ladder". "I am feeling so happy and I am feeling so proud of my team".

While we always knew he could do it, we'd be lying if we said our nerves weren't shot during the results. "I was always a musician and it helped me overcome these obstacles".

Israel's Netta Barzilai reached the finals of the Eurovision Song Contest on Tuesday night with her song "Toy".

Pop star Madonna was previous year among a growing number of foreign residents in Portugal, among them movie stars like Monica Belucci and Michael Fassbender.

Though Ireland is still the most successful country at the contest, with seven wins, we haven't been in the Eurovision since we came in last place back in 2013.
