Eurovision 2018: SuRie reveals 'advantage' which could help United Kingdom win competition

I am crazy nervous: Jessica Mauboy has revealed she suffered WHIPLASH during a gruelling dance rehearsal just days before the Eurovision Song Contest

RTE Today and Nationwide reporter Colm Flynn took to Twitter to share the clip, originally from Derek Mooney, which was captioned "This man almost has a heart attack when Ireland gets through to the Eurovision final". The staging sees Christabelle flanked by images of protests.

Bookmakers and fan polls had predicted that Ireland would not make it through this highly competitive semi-final.

Despite the intensity of the competition, Australia remains a favourite of nearly every country, warmed welcomely behind the scenes.

She performed live in the first semi-final tonight and was voted through into the final on Saturday night with her song Monsters. This year, Myf Warhurst and Joel Creasey again get to host the action, both in the semi-finals and in the Grand Final.

Guy Sebastian (our 2015 entrant), Dami Im (2016) and Isaiah Firebrace (2017) came in 5th, 2nd and 9th respectively in among an annual form of 40-plus countries.

Speaking about her future with Themeli and settling down, Jessica said: 'I actually haven't envisioned us being married, and I think it will happen when it happens'. "There is a sense that we're respecting the process". Last year's winners Portugal also do not have to qualify via the semis. Israel, along with Austria, Estonia, Cyprus, Lithuania, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Albania, Finland and Ireland, all progressed to the music competition's grand finale.

25-year-old singer-songwriter Ryan O'Shaughnessy was born and raised in Dublin, where he joined the Billie Barry Stage School at the age of 4.

The first ten finalists of the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 will be named in Lisbon, Portugal on 8 May, BelTA informs.

Will Ferrell apparently loves a bit of Eurovision. In the final, there were only 10 participants from 19.

The big finale, however, is on Sunday, May 13 (which just so happens to be Mother's Day), with an early morning start of 5am AEST for us Aussies who want to tune in.
