Who is favourite to win Eurovision 2023? 

Sweden is taking the lead with Loreen’s Tattoo, which has odds listed as 8/13 on bet365. 

The singer, who returned to the stage after winning the 2012 contest, is set to face tight competition from Finland this year. 

Eurovision 2023 odds

1. Sweden: Loreen, ‘Tattoo’ – 8/13

2. Finland: Käärijä, ‘Cha Cha Cha’ – 9/4

3. Ukraine: Tvorchi, ‘Heart Of Steel’ – 8/1

4. France: La Zarra, ‘Évidemment’ – 8/1

5. Spain: Blanca Paloma, ‘Eaea’ – 20/1

6. Norway: Alessandra, ‘Queen of Kings’ – 22/1

7. Israel: Noa Kirel, ‘Unicorn’ – 28/1

8. United Kingdom: Mae Muller, ‘I Wrote A Song’ – 33/1

9. Italy: Marco Mengoni, ‘Due vite’ – 50/1

10. Czech Republic: Vesna, ‘My Sister’s Crown’ – 66/1

Finland, who will be represented by Käärijä with the song Cha Cha Cha, sit in second spot at 9/4.

Ukraine is following up with an 8/1, France is at 8/1 and Spain is at 20/1 – rounding out the top five. 

The Czech Republic has been well-backed recently, and with a Top 10 finish at 66/1.

Mae Muller, who will represent the UK, now finds herself with a 33/1 chance of winning in Liverpool.

The singer, 25, will perform in the grand final with her track I Wrote A Song, which features tongue-in-cheek lyrics about a cheating ex-boyfriend and a propulsive dance beat. 

Who won Eurovision 2022? 

While the UK might be hosting Eurovision this year, the 2022 contest was actually won by Ukraine’s Kalush Orchestra, with their track Stefania. 

It was Ukraine’s third Eurovision win, having previously taken top honours in 2004 and 2016.

Due to the ongoing war with Russia, Ukraine are unable to host the 2023 contest – with the honour falling instead to the UK, who finished second last year.

Sam Ryder, who placed second with his song Space Man, previously said that hosting the contest in the UK on Ukraine’s behalf was ‘bittersweet’.

The 2023 Eurovision Song Contest will be available to watch and stream across a variety of different platforms.
