Pick of the Day

Eurovision Song Contest, 8.00pm, RTÉ2

The first semi-final of the annual Eurovision Song Contest, live from Turin, Italy, which sees the 10 songs with the highest number of votes proceed to the final on Saturday night.

Ireland’s representative, Brooke Scullion, doesn’t perform tonight – she's in Thursday’s other semi – so the main attraction here will be the Ukraine entry, rappers Kalush Orchestra.

Chances are they’ll be getting a lot of support tonight and a place in Saturday’s final is a foregone conclusion. Will they win on Saturday? Highly likely.

As usual, Marty Whelan will be on the mic for this one.
