By Stephen Fuchs on

After 61 years, one of Europe’s largest live events with 200 million viewers last year, the Eurovision Song Contest, will be hitting U.S. TV for the first time, thanks to a new partnership with Logo.

The Eurovision Song Contest has seen many of its performers go on to international fame, with ABBA and Céline Dion among the most recognizable, and more recently helped launch the career of Austrian artist and drag queen Conchita Wurst.

“We are thrilled that the world’s biggest entertainment show is being broadcast live in one of the biggest TV markets for the very first time,” said Eurovision Song Contest Executive Supervisor Jon Ola Sand.

The May 14 Grand Final will air on the Logo channel at 3pm ET, on Logo, LogoTV.com and the LogoTV mobile app.
