Eu­ro­vi­sion, SBS, Wed­nes­day, May 9 at 5am and 7.30pm

THE 63rd Eu­ro­vi­sion Song Con­test is about to be­gin in Lis­bon, Por­tu­gal, as Aus­tralia’s most recog­nis­able, all-round en­ter­tainer, Jes­sica Mauboy (pic­tured), will take to the stage in front of an es­ti­mated 200 mil­lion peo­ple for the world’s big­gest song com­pe­ti­tion.

In 2014, Jes­sica made his­tory when she was in­vited to per­form as an in­ter­val act at the Eu­ro­vi­sion Song Con­test in Copenhagen, Den­mark, be­ing the first non-Eu­ro­pean solo artist to do so. This time, she’s com­pet­ing for Aus­tralia and a shot at Eu­ro­vi­sion glory.

Host­ing duo Myf Warhurst and Joel Creasey (also pic­tured) re­turn af­ter their de­but as hosts and com­men­ta­tors at the 2017 con­test. They will be at the helm of SBS’s Eu­ro­vi­sion cov­er­age on the ground from the Altice Arena in Lis­bon.
