Get ready to be entertained by one of the world’s most-watched music events on the big screen!

This year’s Eurovision Song Contest will be broadcast live from Sweden and streamed into cinemas all over the country, including three Kent locations.

On Saturday, May 11, The Light Cinema in Sittingbourne, Cineworld in Ashford, and Showcase at Bluewater in Greenhithe will be showing the grand final of the international singing competition.

Starting at 8pm, the show will be broadcast in the UK on BBC One with commentary from the beloved Graham Norton. The comedian and chat show host took over hosting duties from Terry Wogan in 2008, who had been the voice of Eurovision for over 30 years.

But that’s not all – radio DJs Scott Mills and Rylan will also be providing commentary on BBC Radio 2 and BBC Sounds during the performances, while Richie Anderson will be leading the commentary for the first time on BBC Radio 2 and BBC Sounds.

The BBC’s director of entertainment, Kate Phillips, expressed her excitement for this year’s contest, stating “We’re delighted to continue being the home of Eurovision in the UK by broadcasting both the semi-finals and grand final on BBC One and iPlayer. And BBC Radio 2 will once again be the home of Eurovision on the airwaves, with live coverage of all three shows and plenty of Eurovision content on the day of the grand final.”

Representing the United Kingdom this year is chart-topping singer and actor Olly Alexander with his song, Dizzy. However, according to Eurovision World, the current favorite to win is Switzerland’s rapper and violinist Nemo with the single The Code.

It’s been five decades since pop group Abba took home the Eurovision trophy with their hit song Waterloo. Previous winners include other notable names such as Celine Dion, Lulu, and Michael Ball.

During the cinema screenings, organized by CinemaLive, viewers are encouraged to come dressed in their best Eurovision-inspired outfits and sing along to the songs.

John Travers of CinemaLive shared his excitement for the event, saying “We’re thrilled to be working with the BBC to bring the Eurovision Grand Final live into cinemas across the UK for the second year in a row. We want audiences to have a blast, come in groups, dress up, and come together to enjoy this incredible event on the big screen!”
