A week of Eurovision festivities will come to a close on Saturday night with the grand finale of the song contest, which will begin broadcasting live from Tel Aviv at 10 p.m.

Israel's contestant for this year, Kobi Marimi, is set to take the stage 14th out of the 26 finalists.

In addition to the finalists competing for the top prize, the evening is slated to include many exceptional performances and appearances.


Those include two songs from Madonna, a video clip from Gal Gadot, a performance by Idan Raichel and a show from last year's winner, Netta Barzilai. The evening will also feature a special "switch song" - in which Eurovision legends, including Israeli winner Gali Atari - perform each other's winning songs. Netherlands has long been considered the favorite to win tonight, with Sweden, Switzerland, Australia and Russia also contenders.
