43 countries are participating.

SuRie is an actress and singer who is no stranger to the Eurovision Song Contest, appearing as a backing singer for Loïc Nottet in 2015 and Blanche at Eurovision 2017.

He was introduced to the programme by his Swedish wife, Viveca Paulin and went to see the contest in Copenhagen four years ago when Conchita Wurst won. "I have a strong Finnish and global team with me, together we're able to make great things happen".

The 50-year-old has flown to Lisbon where this year's event is being held and he attended the opening ceremony on Sunday night.

Her musical career started early as a child soloist, performing for the likes of Prince Charles in iconic British venues such as The Royal Albert Hall and St. Paul's Cathedral.

Putin, Merkel Agrees To Preserve Iran Nuclear Deal
Federica Mogherini, EU foreign policy chief, on Tuesday called on the global community to stick to the 2015 nuclear deal. Erdogan described Trump's decision as "wrong" and added that the USA will be the "main loser" by such a decision.

Last year's victor of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, Polina Bogusevich, also attended the Press Conference: "I want to say that my world changed around me, but not inside me since I won".

This year however, the United Kingdom is represented by Eurovision: You Decide victor SuRie, and she's determined to win.

The song was debuted as a music video back in March on Eurovision's official YouTube channel.

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. Considering we were the last country to qualify, we had that sinking feeling until we were able to jump out of our chairs in happiness. "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". "It is totally Eurovision on a budget".

After a week of rehearsals, contestants from 19 countries will take to the stage of the 20,000-capacity Altice Arena on Tuesday in the first night of the semi-finals of the show watched by an estimated more than 200 million people around the world.
