The popular annual show will also feature Graham Norton as the UK commentator and will include a performance from last's year's winners Måneskin.

Who will win Eurovision 2022?

The Ukrainian act is the favourite to win this year's contest with odds of 21/20, according to Betfair Exchange.

Hip hop act Kalush Orchestra will perform a modern rap song crossed with classical Ukrainian folk music called Stefania.

Kalush Orchestra is tipped to win the contest amid the Russian invasion of their country.

Russia will no longer appear in this year's Eurovision Song Contest, the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) confirmed in February.

Ukraine last won the contest in 2016 and therefore hosted the 2017 event in its capital of Kyiv.
