Looking to keep the Eurovision vibes going over the next few festive weeks? Don’t worry! We’ve got you covered… here’s a guide to what you can expect from our channels before 2024.

First off, don't forget to follow us across our different platforms: you can download the official Eurovision Song Contest app (for iOSAndroid), subscribe to the official podcast, and follow us on YouTubeInstagramTikTokThreadsWhatsApp and Facebook - to keep entertained and up-to-date.

We’ve kicked off the holiday season by sharing a newly polished 4k version of Azúcar Moreno’s Bandido from the archive, in anticipation of the duo’s appearance on RTVE’s Celebrity Bake Off (Spain) alongside fellow Eurovision Song Contest icon Blas Cantó.

Out first national final performance is available to watch, thanks to the good people at RTSH’s Festivali i Këngës. Albania’s Besa Kokëdhima (who will be known competitively as ‘Besa’) performs Zemrën N’dorë, so check it out. 

On TikTok and Instagram we’ll be sharing items from the Eurovision Song Contest archive in Geneva, and we look to delve even deeper in the new year.

On Sunday 24 December the official YouTube channel takes a look back at Australia’s most recent entries before a very busy day on Monday 25 December… First up at 12:00 CET we’ll premiere an exclusive 24 minute behind the scenes documentary from Liverpool 2023 by filmmaker Lucy Galliford, featuring interviews with Executive Supervisor Martin Österdahl, podcast host Steve Holden, and the crew behind the biggest show on the planet. It's a tear-jerker.

Immediately after the documentary we’ll premiere Eurovision Legends, taking a deep dive into the stories and songs of some of the Eurovision Song Contest's most iconic performers. In episode one we meet double-winner Loreen from Sweden, who tells us all about her first victory with Euphoria. 

The next day, Tuesday 26 December, the third episode of the new season of the Official Eurovision Song Contest podcast launches on all streaming platforms. We catch up with three top-ten finalists: Käärijä from Finland (who tells us about Bojan's underwear), Norway's Alessandra, and Alika from Estonia. Plus - from Turin 2022, - we find out exactly how Andrei from Romania (formerly known as WRS) created his iconic 'hola, mi bebé-bé' moment.

Then, at 20:00 CET on the same day, tune in to see who’s won our end of year poll! Over 80,000 fans voted across 8 categories via the official Eurovision Song Contest app, to determine the winners of the Eurovision Song Contest Awards 2023.

On December 27, 28, 29, 30 and 31, we countdown the Top 50 performances from 2023 according to what you’ve been watching on the official Eurovision Song Contest YouTube channel.

There might be a few surprises across our channels too! We hope we’ve given you enough to watch over the holidays, and think that this is the perfect way to say goodbye to the Eurovision class of 2023, before we move on to a fabulous new set of participants in the new year. 

Wishing you a happy holidays and a peaceful new year.
