Ahead of the party, press had the opportunity to get to know some of this year's participating acts.
The London Eurovision Party took place at Café de Paris in the heart of the city, where hundreds of excited fans got to see some of their favourite acts perform their Eurovision 2018 song live on stage.
Love for the Eurovision community... and for each other
Eurovision preparties take place every year all over Europe. According to Ireland's Ryan O’Shaughnessy it is a great opportunity for participants to get to know each other: "It's great to hear their story and meet them in person before traveling to Portugal."
ZiBBZ's Stee added: "I didn't realise how big the Eurovision community is before I came here. The audience here has been wonderful!"
Not only did the crowd get to enjoy the 2018 Eurovision stars perform on stage, special guests also joined for the occasion: Lucie Jones, the United Kingdom's 2017 participant, as well as Corinne Hermès, Luxembourg's winner of 1983, made their appearances.
