Logo for Eurovision 2023.

The 2023 Eurovision Song Contest, Europe's most famous singing competition, returns this week. For those unfamiliar with the contest, European countries each submit one original song to be performed live by a singer or band from their respective country. The competing countries cast their votes for other countries' songs to determine a winner. The contest has been around since 1956, making it one of the longest-running annual, international televised music competitions.

The contest is usually held in the country of the winner from the previous year. However, the 2022 winner, Ukraine, will not host due to its war with Russia. The 2023 contest will instead take place in Liverpool, U.K. The semifinals will be hosted by Hannah Waddingham (Ted Lasso), Julia Sanina (The X Factor Ukraine), and Alesha Dixon (Australia's Got Talent), with Graham Norton (The Graham Norton Show) joining the trio for the final.
