Get your keytars ready, because the spectacle of the 67th Eurovision Song Contest is around the corner, and you can catch all the action LIVE from Wednesday 10 - Sunday 14 May at 5:00am AEST on SBS and SBS On Demand with the prime time broadcast from Friday 12 - Sunday 14 May at 7:30pm AEST on SBS and SBS On Demand.

AUSTRALIA'S EUROVISION SPOKESPERSON

Who hasnt heard about the famous douze points? The Eurovision Song Contest voting procedure is legendary, but even more legendary is the coveted role of the official spokesperson - a role that will see legendary costume designer Catherine Martin deliver the scores on behalf of Australia this year.

Catherine Martin said: I am so excited to be the spokesperson for Australia at this year's Eurovision Song Contest. Since my first memories of ABBA exploding onto the stage and becoming the worldwide phenomenon they are, I have been obsessed, not only with the extraordinary celebration of music and songwriting but also with the inspiration, staging, costuming, and lighting. Eurovision celebrates not only musical excellence but the presentation of music, in visually extraordinary ways.

How can Australia vote?

*The jury and Australian public can vote for any country except Australia.

This year, major changes in how the voting in Eurovision will work have been announced. The countries that qualify from the two Semi Finals, 10 from each, will now be decided solely based on the votes cast by viewers of the competition, rather than a combination of a jury and public vote as has been the case since 2009. Also, countries not taking part in the competition will be able to vote online for their favourite songs. Their votes will be added together and converted to points that will have the same weight as one participating country in both the Semi Finals and the Grand Final. Professional juries, made up of those working in the music industry, will continue to contribute to the result of the Grand Final combined with the public vote.

As per the official Eurovision rules, viewers can vote in the Semi Final in which their country is participating, as well as the Grand Final. Australian viewers will need to tune into the LIVE broadcast of Semi Final 2 on Friday 12 May at 5am (AEST) and the Grand Final on Sunday 14 May at 5am (AEST) by following the voting prompts that appear on screen.

You can vote online via Eurovision's official voting partner Digame, exclusively for Australia's public Eurovision vote. This means there will be no SMS or televoting in Australia during the live shows. All of Australia's public votes will be received via this online voting portal, which can be accessed via www.esc.vote

The voting portal will be open to Australians during the voting period in Semi Final 2 and the Grand Final.

Just like SMS voting, votes will be limited to 20 per person and will cost 65c per vote.

Users can allocate 20 votes to one act, divide their votes between multiple acts, or just make one vote for their favourite.

Jury members and public voters can't vote for their own country, so you can vote for any act in Semi Final 2 and Grand Final except Voyager. Find out more about of all the 2023 acts and their songs here

Full voting terms and conditions will be available on the voting platform.

For more information about the voting process, see here.

EUROVISION RATER

If you miss out on voting during the LIVE shows, don't worry! You can still tell us how you rate each performance during the prime time broadcasts at sbs.com.au/Eurovision or scan the QR code on screen during the show. The rater is a real-time poll that will display everyone's results on screen once the song has finished.

Australians will also be able to join in the conversation using the hashtag #SBSEurovision during the interactive evening prime time broadcasts. Tweets and party pictures will then be selected to appear on screen.

The 67th Eurovision Song Contest is held from Tuesday 9 May - Saturday 13 May 2023 and will broadcast in Australia at the dates and times listed below:

LIVE early morning broadcasts on SBS and SBS On Demand

Semi Final 1 - Wednesday 10 May at 5:00am AEST

Semi Final 2 - Friday 12 May at 5:00amb AEST ** FEATURING VOYAGER**

Grand Final - Sunday 14 May at 5:00am AEST

Prime time broadcasts on SBS and SBS On Demand

Semi Final 1 - Friday 12 May at 7:30pm AEST

Semi Final 2 - Saturday 13 May at 7:30pm AEST ** FEATURING VOYAGER**

Grand Final - Sunday 14 May at 7:30pm AEST

Ukraine's Kalush Orchestra won the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest in Turin, Italy, with their song Stefania. This year, the United Kingdom will host the competition on Ukraine's behalf with the theme United by Music. This is the ninth time the United Kingdom will host Eurovision and the fifth time it's hosted for other countries due to financial or capacity issues.

The Eurovision Song Contest is the world's biggest live music event and in 2022 it attracted 161 million viewers worldwide and 2.7 million Australians tuned into SBS's coverage of the event.

Stay tuned to the SBS Eurovision website for updates: sbs.com.au/Eurovision
