The Eurovision Song Contest 2017 will take place in Kiev, Ukraine.
The competition takes place in Ukraine after the 2016 winner Jamala won with the song 1944.
43 nations will take in the final this year and with stiff competition it’s impossible to predict who will win.
The Ukraine, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom automatically qualify for the final with the other 37 nations battling it out in the semi-finals to qualify.
