It’s time for Eurovision 2018 but when does the UK entry perform tonight? Here’s all you need to know!

Commented on by Graham Norton and broadcast live on BBC One, the qualifying acts from the semi-finals plus performers from Portugal, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom, all perform in the grand final of the 63nd Eurovision Song Contest from Lisbon, Portugal this evening.


Representing the UK is singer SuRie and her song Storm.

SuRie is an actress and singer who is no stranger to the Eurovision Song Contest, appearing as a backing singer for Loïc Nottet in 2015 and Blanche at Eurovision 2017.

She and her song Storm were selected back in February after six potential tracks were put to a viewer and panel vote.

When does the UK perform on Eurovision tonight?

UK Eurovision entry Surie has been given a slot just after the first interval, singing 9th out of the 26 finalists.

Due to the nature of it being a live show, the exact time the UK will perform can’t be revealed but as a good guide last year the country in the same spot performed around 8:40-8:50PM.

Surie will be singing her song Storm.

Eurovision 2018 airs tonight in the UK from 8PM on BBC One.

The show is due to conclude at 11:35PM but has often overran in past years.


As well as the TV cast, you can also listen in via BBC Radio 2 with Ken Bruce from 8PM as well.

Going into tonight’s show, Surie is ranked as a huge outsider to win at odds of 100/1 with some bookies.
