Commented on by Graham Norton and broadcast live on BBC One, the qualifying acts from the semi-finals plus performers from Israel, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom, all perform in the grand final of the 64th Eurovision Song Contest from Tel Aviv, Israel this evening.
Representing the UK is singer Michael Rice and his song Bigger Than Us.
Michel is no stranger to singing talent shows: He previously auditioned for The X Factor in 2014 and last year, he became the first winner of BBC One’s singing show All Together Now.

When does the UK perform on Eurovision tonight?
UK Eurovision entry Michael Rice has been given a slot in the second half to he running order, singing 16th 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 confirmed but as a good guide last year the country in the same spot performed around 9:15-9:30PM.
Michael will be singing his song Bigger Than Us.
Eurovision 2019 airs tonight in the UK from 8PM on BBC One.
The show is due to conclude at 11:40PM but has often overran in past years.
As well as the TV airing, you can also listen in via BBC Radio 2 with Ken Bruce from 8PM as well.
Going into tonight’s show, Michael is ranked as a huge outsider to win at odds of 100/1 with some bookies.
Meanwhile, it’s been confirmed that Rylan Clark-Neal will act as the UK’s spokesperson to give our scores.
The UK voting jury will be made up of Actor George Ure, Pete Watson – Musical Director, Jai Ramage – Vocal Coach, Adele Roberts – BBC Radio 1 DJ, AJ Bentley – Singer and Musical Performer
