The Eurovision 60th Anniversary live concert is just three days away, taking place at London’s Eventim Apollo on Tuesday night. The 90 minute show will take a look back at some of the most iconic, memorable entries with live performances from some of the contest’s biggest names.

The show is being produced by the BBC and will be hosted by the UK’s grand final commentator Graham Norton as well as host of the 2013 contest, Sweden’s Petra Mede. The official line up of artists to perform was announced last month and consists of:

Technical Assistant: I've been here since Day 1 (I actually had a full head of hair back then!), and whilst I enjoy reporting the news, I also aid in keeping things running tip top behind the scenes. Yep, I'm also a bit of a tech geek!
