ACROSS Europe, avid Eurovison-lovers are gearing up for a night of weird, wonderful and wacky performances in Copenhagen.

Austria are the favourites to win, following their entry Conchita Wurst’s show stopping performance in the recent semi-final. The bearded drag-queen has certainly caught the attention of the competing countries.

Other countries tipped for success are Sweden, Armenia and the Netherlands.

Eyebrows are sure to be raised by the fact that the United Kingdom’s entry Molly Smitten-Downes is ranked as fifth favourite, according to Skybet.

Span’s Ruth Lorenzo, who appeared on British talent show the X-factor in 2008, is also one to watch out for, despite not being including among the favourites.

The show begins at 9pm and will run until 12:25, and is expected to draw a global audience in the millions.
