This year’s theme is “Celebrate Diversity.” 

It's that time of year again: The 2017 Eurovision Song Contest is closing out tomorrow with its grand final and the queer-friendly event will be broadcast live around the world.

After two rounds of semi-finals earlier this week, performers from across Europe and Australia will compete for the prestigious title won in the past by the likes of ABBA and Celine Dion. While favorite for this year Italy has an automatic spot in the final along with Germany, France, Spain, the UK, and host-nation the Ukraine, other countries must compete to fill out the top 20.

While many headlines surrounding the contest have to do with the music and entrants (Italy's entrant song already had more than 100 million views on YouTube before the contest started), others focus on countries that aren't participating. Usual contender Russia was forced to sit out of this year's contest after it was discovered that their competitor, Yulia Samoylova, entered annexed Ukrainian territory Crimea for a performance.

The Grand Final of the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest will be broadcast at 8pm on BBC One with commentary from Graham Norton. Fans and viewers on this side of the pond can tune into Logo at 3 PM Eastern / 12 PM Pacific to watch the finale with commentary from RuPaul's Drag Racemainstays Michelle Visage and Ross Matthews.
