The British TV star Alesha Dixon, Ukrainian singer Julia Sanina, and actress Hannah Waddingham will be hosting the Eurovision Song Contest. They will be joined by veteran presenter Graham Norton, who is no stranger to the competition.

The annual international music extravaganza will take place at the M&S Bank Arena Liverpool in May. This is after the city was selected to host the competition on behalf of 2022 winners Ukraine, following the Russian invasion.

The news was announced by Zoe Ball on her BBC Radio 2 breakfast show on Wednesday. Ball revealed that the grand final on 13 May will be hosted by the talented quartet of Dixon, Sanina, Waddingham, and Norton. Ukrainian commentator Timur Miroshnychenko will also be present to add his unique perspective to the show.

She said:”Last time the Eurovision was in the UK back in 1998 hosted by our dear Sir Terry Wogan and Ulrika Johnson, last year in Turin of course Alessandro Cattelan, Laura Pausini and Mika, in those fabulous bright suits.

“On the TV hosting the Eurovision Song Contest final in Liverpool will be Alesha Dixon, the Ukrainian singer Julia Sanina, the award-winning actress from Ted Lasso and Games Of Thrones Hannah Waddingham and someone you may well know, Mr Graham Norton.”

Mel Giedroyc has been revealed to take over from Norton in the commentary box.

Fans of the hit TV show Ted Lasso will be pleased to know that Hannah Waddingham will be among the presenters. She has also had a successful career in the West End and on Broadway, making her the perfect choice to co-host the show.

Julia Sanina, on the other hand, is a rising star in the music world. She is the lead singer of the Ukrainian band The Hardkiss and has already won over millions of fans with her unique voice and stage presence.

Meanwhile, Alesha Dixon is a well-known TV personality and singer. She has previously been a judge on shows like Britain’s Got Talent and The Greatest Dancer, and her music career includes hits like “The Boy Does Nothing” and “Breathe Slow”.

It’s worth noting that the UK’s entry for the competition is yet to be revealed. But with such a talented group of presenters, this year’s Eurovision Song Contest is shaping up to be an unforgettable event.
