Saara Aalto has made it into the final of the Eurovision 2018 Song Contest.

43 countries in total are competing at Eurovision in 2018.

It is Cyprus' 31st time participating in Eurovision after joining the song contest in 1981, but has yet to emerge as the victor, placed fifth three times.

Last time a British act won the Eurovision song contest was in 1997, with Katrina and the Waves, with "Love Shine a Light", in Dublin. She will be performing her song "We Got Love".

Speaking about her future with Themeli and settling down, Jessica said: 'I actually haven't envisioned us being married, and I think it will happen when it happens'. "One of the most important factors is to make sure if they can move the project forward, and that has actually been the case of the Junior Eurovision every year".

"Other countries have seen that, so I'm just so happy that other people feel what we feel".

Now it wouldn't be Eurovision without a technical hitch and if you look carefully, you might notice that the middle section of the lighting frame behind SuRie chose to go on strike.

"Tu Cancion" is Spain's heart-warming entry in this year's Eurovision 2018 contest that takes place in Lisbon on May 12.

"It a hard one but I think at the end of the day it's showcasing music, talent and creating a pathway for the next person to do it".

Not realising that there was one act still left t be announced, the man in question insists that we should give up our Eurovision dreams, as 'the best song in the competition didn't get through'.

So, we have set you a quiz to test your knowledge of this year's participants.

The second semi-final will be on Friday May 11, from 5am AEST and features our girl Jess up against 17 other nations for a spot in the Grand Final. Following countless days and hours of preparations, the first live show from the Altice Arena is already over, and its results are (yaaas) in!
