Eurovision is back. One of the biggest music events in Europe, and a huge draw for gays, the grand final performances finish today at 21:00 CEST (12 noon PT/3 pm ET). Broadcasters across Europe (including the UK) will pick up the live feed from Turin, Italy. US viewers can watch the Grand Final on Peacock (no confirmation it will be streamed live).
One standout performer we’re watching out for is Sheldon Riley, the gay Australian singer who will represent the non-European nation. Sheldon was diagnosed with Asperger syndrome when he was six, and it sounds like his journey made it to his song, “Not the same“. Here’s a preview of Sheldon’s entry.
Britain is once again hoping to win this year, with singer-songwriter Sam Ryder. The UK entry will be played 22nd over all (with 25 total Grand Final performances). Australia will go immediately before the UK.
