Guest performances for the Grand Final in Liverpool announced

A star-studded lineup of Eurovision Song Contest legends has been unveiled, as the BBC announces the guest performers we can look forward to seeing at the Grand Final of the 67th Contest in Liverpool.

Eurovision Song Contest 2023 Grand Final, taking place in Liverpool on behalf of Ukraine, is set to be an unforgettable event. The opening performance will feature last year’s winners, Kalush Orchestra, who will present their hit song “Stefania” along with a powerful new performance titled “Voices of a New Generation“. During the Flag Parade, viewers will be treated to a unique performance by some iconic past Ukrainian Eurovision contestants, including GO_A, Jamala, Tina Karol, and, of course, Verka Serduchka, who will showcase a new twist on their Eurovision entries weaved with British classics.

For the first interval performance, Sam Ryder, the UK’s spaceman, will return to the Eurovision stage after leading the UK’s biggest success in over two decades. He will deliver a special performance of his 2022 Eurovision entry, Space Man. The final interval act, The Liverpool Songbook, will be a celebration of the host city’s incredible contribution to the world of pop music, featuring six iconic past Eurovision acts, including Mahmood, Netta, Daði Freyr, Cornelia Jakobs, Duncan Laurence, and Liverpool’s very own Sonia, who will all put their own spin on classic hits.

The Eurovision 2022 winners, Kalush Orchestra, express their excitement about performing in Liverpool and being part of this unforgettable event:

We’ve been looking forward to performing in Liverpool ever since it was announced as host last year. The city has a world-renowned musical heritage and we’re delighted to finally be able to announce what an honour it will be for us to be there.

They continued:

While we’re sad that we couldn’t bring the Eurovision Song Contest back to our home country, we’re really grateful to the UK for hosting this party on our behalf. We will perform for everyone in Ukraine to remind us that better days and our country’s victory is ahead, as well as to show the world what Ukraine is fighting for.

Sam Ryder also shared his gratitude for being invited back to the Eurovision stage for a second time:

What an honour to be invited back to the Eurovision stage for a second time! I can’t wait to be back amongst the beautiful chaos of it all and to watch the incredible artists perform this time around, while bringing you a special performance of our own. Big love!
