Eurovision 2019 is here but what time is it on tonight? When is the UK performing and what's the full running order?

Here's everything you need to know about the Eurovision 2019 Song Contest in the UK tonight!

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, perform in the grand final of the 63rd Eurovision Song Contest from Tel Aviv.

The UK Eurovision entry 2019 was confirmed in February and singer Michael Rice will be representing us this weekend.

Michael and his song Bigger Than Us, written by Laurell Barker, Anna-Klara Folin, John Lundvik and Jonas Thander, will head to Tel Aviv after being chosen in the You Decide competition.

Following the artists' parade and an introduction from the hosts, the show will begin as 26 acts take to the stage in a bid for Eurovision glory.

In the Grand Final, juries and viewers from all 42 participating countries can vote again, after the 26 finalists have performed.

Once the voting window has closed the presenters will call upon spokespersons in all 42 countries and ask them to reveal their jury points live on air.

Next, viewers' points from all 42 countries will be added up, and revealed from the lowest to the highest, culminating into a climax that will eventually reveal the winner of the 63rd Eurovision Song Contest.

The winner will perform once again, and take home the iconic glass microphone trophy.
