Eurovision 2023: Top Secret Star Will Join Interval Performance At Song Contest Grand Final Tonight
A top star is billed to give a performance during this evening’s Eurovision Song Contest Grand Final.
The identity of the performer is being kept a close secret by event organisers, who are running rehearsals in a closed set in Liverpool, UK.
BBC commentator Scott Mills told the Liverpool Echo:
“There has been some stuff happening where it’s been a completely closed set so nobody has been allowed to go in there. So what’s going on there? No one will tell us I promise you.”

What is known is that last year’s Ukrainian winners Kalush Orchestra will open the evening with a performance of their song Stefania. Other Ukrainian performers include former winner Jamaal and artists Tina Karol and Verka Seduchka.
And for the closing interval act, Liverpool singer Sonia – who came second for the UK in the 1990s – will join other Eurovision performers for a rendition of the “Liverpool Songbook” including a stirring rendition of the town’s anthem “You’ll Never Walk Alone.”
The global audience for this evening’s Grand Final is predicted to top last year’s 160million. Sweden’s favourite Loreen – who previously won in 2014 – is the hot favourite going in, although Ukraine is hoping to make it a historic double of two wins in a row, not achieved since Ireland managed it in the 1990s.
