Eurovision 2018 Final updates: Cyprus favourite to win ahead of Song Contest | TV & Radio | Showbiz & TV


Tonight, 26 countries will battle it out in Lisbon, Portugal at the Eurovision Song Contest 2018, to be crowned winner.

The Grand Final comes after 36 countries competed in the semi-finals, which took place on Tuesday 8 May and Thursday 10 May, to win the chance to perform tonight.

The “big five”, France, Germany, Spain, Italy and UK all automatically qualified for the final as they made the biggest financial contribution to the contest.

The Eurovision Song Contest takes place tonight and will be broadcast on BBC One at 8pm.

The winner of this year’s competition will be announced by 11.35pm.

Competing tonight are: Austria, Estonia, Cyprus, Lithuania, Israel, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Albania, Finland, Ireland, Serbia, Moldova, Hungary, Ukraine, Sweden, Australia, Forward, Denmark, Slovenia, The Netherlands, UK, France, Germany, Spain and Italy.

Cyprus act Eleni Foureira is currently favourite to top the leaderboard this year.

Bookmakers believe she will be the most popular of the night and Coral have slated her odds at winning to just 11-10.

A spokesperson for the bookmakers, John Hill, noted: “There has been a huge gamble behind Cyprus winning Eurovision for a number of weeks and support behind Eleni Foureira is showing no sign of stopping heading into the final.”

Unfortunately for the UK, it looks like this year’s hopeful SuRie will not be victorious with her odds at 100-1.
