Host of the UK's Eurovision broadcast, Graham Norton, was shocked by the disruption.

Coverage is scheduled to last for three hours and 35 minutes, with 26 countries vying for glory.

The bookmakers' favorites this year are: Israel's Netta Barzilai, with her playful song "Toy"; Cypriot singer Eleni Foureira, with her fiery performance of "Fuego"; and France's Madame Monsieur with the politically charged "Mercy", about migrants who risk their lives crossing the Mediterranean on unsafe boats hoping for a better life in Europe.

Cyprus and Israel are the two favourites but we're not far behind.

Earlier, Britain's representative SuRie had her performance interrupted when a man stormed the stage and grabbed her microphone.

"It's got a really attractive concept. a kind of light tunnel that I can move in and out of, supporting the story and enhancing the beats of the song", she said.

Noway's Alexander Rybak is a previous Eurovision victor, but he seems unlikely to make it to the top a second time with his offering this year, That's How You Write A Song.

"It creates a really strong atmosphere on stage, letting the music - the melody and the lyrics - do their thing".

The singer was voted through in the second semi-final of the 63rd Eurovision yesterday in Lisbon, Portugal after a stirring rendition of her pop song We Got Love.

SuRie is a rank outsider to reverse that trend, with odds on a United Kingdom victory ranging from 100/1 to 350/1.

Coming after last year's much-seen stage invasion, the question has to be asked: How does this keep happening?

Russian Federation will be absent tonight after making a shock exit during Thursday's semi-final. The third place is taken by Ryan O'Shaughnessy from Ireland with the song Together (index - 8). They will be hoping to add to their record-equalling seven Eurovision wins.
