Eurovision 2012 Grand Final May 26: Where, When to Watch Live
Eurovision Song Contest 2012: Final
The Eurovision Song Contest is set for the Final on May 26, 2012 in Baku, Azerbaijan. Eurovision pits European nations (and their nearby neighbors) against each other in a glamazonian pop-music throwdown, with only one carefully-cultivated act reigning supreme.
When is the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 Final?
Eurovision 2012 comes to a head on Saturday, May 26, 2012 at 9pm CET (4pm ET/1pm PT). If you're in the UK, check BBC3 (BBC America is not showing the Eurovision Grand Final). 20 winners from the semifinals, plus six pre-qualifiers, will take the stage for the Eurovision 2012 Grand Final.
Those of you not watching on TV can follow online... if your eyes, ears, and sanity can handle it.

The Starting order for Eurovision 2012 Grand Final
- United Kingdom (Engelbert Humperdinck!)
- Boznia & Herzegovina
- Russia (Babushki!)
- Ireland (freakin' Jedward...)
Not taking sides or telling you how to vote, but Jedward must be destroyed. Just saying.
Also check out ABC's Bluffer's Guide to Eurovision 2012, which somehow misspelled "Englebert Humperdinck". He's the oldest male performer in Eurovision history, but at least one of Russia's Babushki is older.
