So, Phil and team, what are YOU going to be doing with your shiny laminated badges?

Hello world!

Yes it’s those two weeks of the year where the Eurovision internet is a-buzz with stuff about Europe’s favourite television show.

However this year, changes are afoot, as you may have seen. The First AND Second rehearsals are CLOSED to the press, in, officially, an attempt to ensure the artists make mistakes in peace but, more likely, so Ticky-Tock can get their mitts on some footage that we haven’t got, and eurovision.tv gets to control the story of the contest. Hint: everything is great.

It’ll never work – because we, the fan press, have been doing this shit for too many years and will find ways round things to give readers the quality original contest that you deserve!

Eurovision 2023 coverage

A bit like last year, the first four days will have close to radio silence because, well, no one wants to show us anything. We’ll be digesting the delegation TikTok lives from 3-6 May … in lieu of those boring old press conferences which no one attended. And then, Mr Phil and Mr Nick will be on-site, and Mr Mo will be remote, from May 8 and will stick to these rough times for live blogs and stuff.

Hope everyone finish their countdown before you get to Liverpool.
