The Eurovision Song Contest is the biggest song contest in Europe and Asia, more than 100 Million people watch it live every year.  This year 42 countries are participating. It will take place in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan because the winning country is always the host of the next contest. The big final is going to be on the 26th May.
