QUIZ: Guess the lyrics of the 1st Eurovision 2018 semi-finalists

Putting on a show! Jessica revealed her performance is'shaping up really well as she hit the stage at the Altice Arena in Portugal's capital Lisbon

Historically Finland has rarely done well at the Eurovision Song Contest and has only won the longest-running annual global TV song competition once.

Backed up by three dancers, her trademark side buns featuring stripes of pink dyed hair to match her pink-and-black outfit, she clucked and bucked her way through "Toy", the song that has seemed slated to win big according to Eurovision betting.

The 63rd Eurovision Song Contest is about to take place, for the first time in its history, in Portugal, a country that had a reputation - until a year ago - as the competition's biggest loser. "I am feeling so happy and I am feeling so proud of my team".

"I think just stepping on that stage, as the lead artist representing the United Kingdom, I don't think anything can beat that", SuRie told fellow commentator Rylan Clark-Neal in Lisbon.

"Other countries have seen that, so I'm just so happy that other people feel what we feel".

Not realising that there was one act still left t be announced, the man in question insists that we should give up our Eurovision dreams, as 'the best song in the competition didn't get through'.

Could the 63rd Eurovision Song Contest prove lucky for Cyprus? "That's something I've been great at, no doubt about it".

So who is SuRie, and can she beat the odds again in Saturday's grand final?
