Hello Europe, and welcome to the Live Blog for the first Eurovision Semi-Final! Eurovision has been away for two years, but now we are BACK and ready to go.
Heidi and Rob are keeping you company this evening - we’ve set up camp in the Delegation Bubble to bring you all the pre-show gossip and the details of the live show, as it happens.
By the end of tonight’s show our 16 Semi-Finalists will be reduced to 10 Grand Finalists, and we’ll also know if they’re going to perform in the first or the second half of the Grand Final on Saturday.
Are you excited? We’re very excited. Please stay with us and enjoy the show! It’s almost time to #OpenUp…
