UKTV confirm Eurovision LIVE coverage for NZ
The Eurovision Song Contest is the world’s biggest non-sporting live TV event and a strong household name among hundreds of millions of people in Europe. Every year, 100 to 125 million people in over 45 countries watch the televised competition. The contest is one of the longest running television shows in the world and without doubt, Europe’s favourite TV show.
For the first time in Eurovision history, this year Australia has been invited to compete at the contest as a wild card entry to celebrate 60 years of The Eurovision Song Contest. Multi-talented singer and ARIA Award-winner Guy Sebastian will represent Australia in some fierce competition from all around the world.
The 60th Eurovision Song Contest is set to take place in Vienna, and it’s the Wiener Stadthalle that will be the arena for the upcoming contest. Hosting the green room this year is Eurovision’s famous bearded lady, Conchita Wurst who will also perform as the winner of the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest.
