Eurovision 2014: When, Where, Odds And Who To Look Out For At This Year's Song Contest

Eurovision 2014

The Eurovision Song Contest is almost upon us once again and for the first time in years the UK's entry, 'Children Of the Universe' by Molly is actually in with a chance. And it's about time we won - the last time that happened was in 1997 when Katrina And The Waves came out on top with 'Love Shine A Light'.

This year's Eurovision will be held in Copenhagen, Denmark, after they won the contest last year with Emmelie De Forest's 'Only Teardrops'. It sailed home to victory with 281 points - a whopping 47 more than second-placed Azerbaijan and way ahead of our entry - Bonnie Tyler's 'Believe In Me' - which scored a paltry 23 points.
