Sadly for Iceland, they may not be allowed to perform live in the grand final following a positive coronavirus test. 

Instead, their pre-recorded video of the song, 10 Years, will be shown. 

The proceedings will kick off at 9pm CEST, with coverage on BBC One starting from 8pm. 

The final will air for three hours and 45 minutes, coming to an end at 11.45pm. 

For fans in the UK, Graham Norton will be leading the BBC coverage for the night. Over in Rotterdam, the four hosts – Chantal Janzen, Edsilia Rombley, Jan Smit and Nikkie de Jager, will return. 

Duncan Laurence, the 2019 winner from The Netherlands, was expected to perform two songs during the final. However, he was forced to pull out following a positive coronavirus test. 

DJs Afrojack, Glennis Grace, Wulf and a classical orchestra will also perform as part of the act titled Music Binds Us.

As for who is expected to claim victory on the big night, the odds are in Italy’s favour as they steal the bookies top spot. 

France and Malta also have a high chance of taking the crown, with France down as the original bookies favourite. 

The Eurovision Song Contest Grand Final airs on Saturday, May 22, 8pm on BBC One and will be available on BBC iPlayer.
