#LIGHTUP for the 2018 Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Minsk

#LIGHTUP for the 2018 Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Minsk

The former Australian Idol contestant is one of her country's most recognisable pop stars, having won awards for both her music and acting.

Israel is headed to the finals of the competition, this year being held in Lisbon, Portugal, for the fourth year in a row.

He was eliminated from BGT before the live shows because of a conflict of interest between the shows. "And if I succeed, it will be fantastic for me and for me, this is victory", answered Netta to the question about how the singer would feel if you are not going to win the competition and become the second.

Russian Federation will be particularly keen to do well, having withdrawn from last year's contest after the host nation Ukraine banned Russia's representative from appearing.

"I have the advantage of knowing what the Eurovision set-up is like. We have now got the venue Minsk Arena, announced the slogan #LIGHTUP and released the logo".

The UK will be represented by Essex-born singer SuRie - who triumphed in Eurovision: You Decide in early February this year. I've had more plans, more stages, more things to do, more work.

Could the 63rd Eurovision Song Contest prove lucky for Cyprus?

Of course, a lot of people were very excited about the advancement. Considering we were the last country to qualify, we had that sinking feeling until we were able to jump out of our chairs in happiness. "And I'd be ready; I'm always ready".

Ireland has made it through to the grand final of the Eurovision Song Contest - for the first time since 2013.

The UK Eurovision act for 2018 was confirmed last month.
