IT’S HERE. Eurovision 2023 kicks off this week in Liverpool, England, barreling toward a Grand Final hosted by Graham Norton (!) and Hannah Waddingham (!!). In the meantime: Ukraine won last year, but obviously cannot host the show itself, so runner-up United Kingdom got the nod and chose the home of the Beatles for the event. I tried SO HARD to get to this, but it just wasn’t in the cards this year, so let’s hope I can remedy that next year. Drinks With Broads needs some Eurovision content.

Here is the red carpet arrival of all the bands, ahead of the two semi-finals on Tuesday and Thursday (and, as I learned when trying to get tickets, a boatload of rehearsals).
