Ireland's Ryan O'Shaugnessy is hoping for success in tonight's 2018 Eurovision Song Contest Final.

He was the stage third last act to perform at tonight's showcase event.

A Chinese TV company has had their contract to show the song contest terminated for censoring LGBT content in the video for his song 'Together'.

Last year's winner for Portugal Salvador Sobral has also performed during the show tonight.
