Listen out for all 26 songs played to help you decide, along with a chat with BBC Radio 2’s Richie Anderson (trying to spruik the UK’s song for Australian audiences).

LEARN MORE After months of preparing and a year of waiting, we’re finally ready to celebrate the Grand Final of the biggest music event in the world.
Michael, Liam and Io jumped in the studio to preview the Big 5 and Host entries in this year’s Eurovision Grand Final. With such a tight field of amazing music, they had great difficulty choosing who might win… but they knew who they didn’t like.
Listen out for all 26 songs played to help you decide, along with a chat with BBC Radio 2’s Richie Anderson (trying to spruik the UK’s song for Australian audiences).
