Australia’s 2023 Eurovision Song Contest hopefuls Voyager have made their debut in Liverpool at the event’s big opening ceremony.

The UK is hosting the 67th Eurovision Song Contest on behalf of Ukraine, whose Kalush Orchestra won last year.

Overnight, all 37 acts walked the Turquoise Carpet in Liverpool as Eurovision week kicks off in the city. The contest’s grand final is this Sunday.

The Perth synth metal band are the first group Australia has sent to the contest, with their song Promise.

Meanwhile, Sydney singer Andrew Lambrou is also representing Cyprus in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest.

Andrew Lambrou is in Liverpool to perform his Eurovision song Break A Broken Heart.

How to watch the Eurovision Song Contest 2023

The 2023 Eurovision Song Contest is broadcast on SBS and SBS On Demand from 5am on May 10 and 12 (semi-finals one and two) and May 14 (grand final).

Voyager will perform in semi-final two. SBS will rebroadcast all three shows from 7:30pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.

Myf Warhurst and Joel Creasey are again hosting Australia’s Eurovision coverage on SBS.

This year is the 40th year of SBS broadcasting the cult, camp music competition to Aussies.

It’s the eighth year Australia has taken part, and also the last year we’re officially contracted to take part.

SBS told News Corp last week at this stage there’s “no updates on Australia’s future” in the contest beyond 2023.
