The grand final of the Eurovision Song Contest (ESC) 2023 takes place this Saturday at the Liverpool Arena. There are 26 countries that will fight for the final win, in a show scheduled for 20:00 (local time, 21:00 CET).

After an opening act that will feature Kalush Orchestra and other Ukrainian representatives in the event over the years, Austria will be the first competing country to perform, while the United Kingdom closes the running order.

Aas usual, there will be interval acts: Sam Ryder, last year’s runner-up, and the Liverpool Songbook featuring six former ESC contestants from various countries. The national juries will decide half of the result, while the public (via televoting or online voting in the Rest of the World) will decide the other half.

Public broadcasters of the 37 participating countries will broadcast the ESC final live on their channels, but you can also watch it in television in seven non-participating countries and almost everywhere in the world on ESC’s official YouTube channel, here.
