The Official Eurovision Song Contest Podcast is back with exclusive interviews and loads of behind-the-scenes access in the run up to the Grand Final in Liverpool on Saturday 13 May.

Our host Steve Holden will be speaking to all 37 acts competing this year to find out more about them, the songs, and how they'll be preparing for Liverpool.

🎧 Listen now: Episode 4 - The Eurovision Love Affair

This week sees the first of those acts joining the pod; Gustaph, who’ll represent Belgium with his song Because Of You. 

Gustaph talks exclusively to Steve about the song, his time in cult band Hercules & Love Affair, his experiences of working on the Belgian Eurovision entries in 2018 and 2021, and about what we can expect from his performance in May.

Gustaph won Eurosong 2023 and will represent Belgium with 'Because Of You' VRT

Steve also caught up with two Eurovision legends. The first is presenter and life-long Eurovision super-fan Rylan, who along with AJ Odudu will host the Semi-Final Allocation Draw on Tuesday 31 January (which you can watch here).

Our second legend is Head of Delegation for Ukraine, Oksana Skybinska, who reflects on Kalush Orchestra’s emotional win and describes how she’s playing a big part in the organisation of the Contest in Liverpool. 

And if that weren’t enough, there’s also a star turn from Dutch sensations OG3NE, who play Eurovision On The Spot!
