200 days to go until Eurovision 2018!

Eurovision Song Contest LGBT.pngThere are just 200 days to go until the Grand Final of the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest! The competition will be held Portugal’s capital, Lisbon, in May. Next week the Reference Group, the governing body of the Eurovision Song Contest, will meet in Portugal to discuss the next steps in the organisation of the 63rd edition of the competition.

Portugal is hosting the Eurovision Song Contest following Salvador Sobral’s victory in Kyiv. The singer scored a record high 758 points performing Amar Pelos Dois, a song written by his sister Luísa.

2018 will mark first time ever that competition will be held in Portugal, as Salvador’s win was the country’s first in their 53 years of competing.

2018 will also be Portugal’s 50th appearance in the Contest.
