We're sending Aussie darling and ex-Australian Idol contestant Jessica Mauboy across to Lisbon, Portugal.

Held since 1956, Eurovision is the longest-running worldwide song competition broadcast on television.

Artists from 43 countries, majority European, are taking part.

The UK will be represented by Essex-born singer SuRie - who triumphed in Eurovision: You Decide in early February this year. TV viewers can not cast votes for representatives of their countries.

Netta has already picked up an OUTtv award after winning a vote among the contest's LGBT fanbase.

Takeda and Shire agree £46bn takeover
Takeda said it will launch a "review of the functions undertaken" at Shire's current headquarters in Dublin within the first year. Takeda said that it may reduce the combined workforce by 6 per cent to 7 per cent in the three years, post closing.

Portugal won Eurovision 2017 with Amar pelos dois, performed by Salvador Sobral, so this year, Lisbon hosts 42 other participating nations.

The second leg of the semi-finals will air on Thursday, where the remainder of the hopefuls will battle it out.

As one of the so-called "big five" that give the most funding to the contest, the United Kingdom gets an automatic pass to the final along with four other countries and host nation Portugal. The other countries, including Australia, battle it out in two semi-finals, with the top ten performances from each heading through to the Grand Finals.

This year however, she hopes for a better result.

Today's first semi-final sent home nine countries: Azerbaijan, Iceland, Belgium, Belarus, F.Y.R. Macedonia, Croatia, Greece, Armenia and Switzerland.

This week, O'Shaughnessy performed together at the Eurovision semi-final, and according to the Guardian he was the "great surprise" of the night.

The finals start at 5am (AEST) on Sunday.

Will Ferrell apparently loves a bit of Eurovision. 200 million people worldwide are expected to watch this year's edition of Eurovision. Both semi-finals will be rebroadcast in primetime at 7:30pm.

A global stream of all three events without commentary is available via the official Eurovision YouTube channel.

Of course, you could just wait all day and rewatch the broadcast at 7:30pm instead.

Jon Ola Sand, Executive Supervisor of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, explained about Belarus' broadcaster, BTRC, hosting the show: "We made a decision to give the host broadcaster more time to prepare for the event, that's why we announced it earlier".
