LESLEY ROY WILL sadly not be flying the Irish flag at the Eurovision Song Contest final tonight, after not making it through Tuesday’s fist semi-final.

However, 39 other countries will battle it out for the top prize in the Ahoy Arena in Rotterdam.

There will be a smaller audience than normal in attendance, as organisers seek to make the event Covid-19 safe.

Love it or loathe it, the contest remains hugely popular – over 180 million people tuned in to watch the final in 2019.

We want to know: Will you watch the Eurovision final tonight?


Poll Results:

No, and I wouldn't have even if we made the final (8321)
No, but I would have if Ireland was in it (3270)
Yes (3132)
I'm not sure (661)
