The Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 kicks off tonight at 8pm BST with 26 countries competing for a chance to walk away as winners and host the competition next year. 

Graham Norton will be providing commentary for the UK, taking over from radio presenter Scott Mills and This Morning host Rylan Clark-Neal who presented the two semi-finals earlier this week. 

Netherlands has been the hot favourite to win this year’s competition with odds of 4/6 on Bet365, SkyBet, Ladbrokes and William Hill. 

Duncan Laurence and his song Arcade sailed through the second semi-final but they face competition from Australia who have odds of 11/2. 

When Australia’s Kate Miller-Heidke performed a rendition of song Zero Gravity in the first semi-final, odds on her winning were slashed. 

Can she do enough to secure Australia’s victory for the very first time or will their be a surprise winner tonight? 

Michela Pace, representing Malta with her song Chameleon will be the first performance of the night. 

The UK’s entry, Michael Rice and his song Bigger Than Us, is16th in the running order. 

It doesn’t look great for the UK as the latest odds for Michael to win are 150-1 but odds to win are 4-1. 

Madonna is set to perform new track Future with rapper Quavo and her classic Like A Prayer during the show.
