The Eurovision Song Contest is an annual international singing competition mainly featuring European countries.

Tuesday May 9 is the first day of this year's contest held in the UK city of Liverpool, and the performances will continue until the live final on Saturday May 13.

As the UK is hosting Eurovision 2023, it is expected more people around the country will be tuning in to watch our very own Mae Muller take on the other finalists on Saturday.

We spoke to local people in Manchester to find out what they think about Eurovision, whether they are planning on watching this year, and who they hope to win.
