Earlier this week, the BBC also confirmed the line-up of guest performances for the grand final. Sam Ryder, who came second in last year’s contest with ‘Space Man’, will provide the first interval performance while the judges are voting.
Kalush Orchestra, who led Ukraine to Eurovision victory in 2022, are also on the line-up. To open the final, the rap group will deliver a special performance titled ‘Voices Of A New Generation’ which will incorporate their winning song ‘Stefania’.
The final interval act, dubbed ‘The Liverpool Songbook’, is a celebration of the 2023 host city’s “incredible contribution to the world of pop music”.
For that performance, the BBC has enlisted “six iconic past Eurovision acts” – Italy’s Mahmood, Israel’s Netta, Iceland’s Daði Freyr, Sweden’s Cornelia Jakobs, and the Netherlands’ Duncan Laurence – plus Liverpool’s Sonia, marking 30 years since she came second at Eurovision in 1993.
It’s also been confirmed that various cities across the UK will host “large-scale official screenings” of the Eurovision Song Contest Grand Final to “ensure as many people can join in the fun as possible”.
The locations announced so far are as follows: Birmingham, Brighton, Cardiff, Darlington, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham and Sheffield. According to organisers, further cities will be added over the coming weeks.
