Eurovision is just around the corner and the nation is highly anticipating the night of musical fun.
And after year's of disappointment, it looks like this year the UK finally has an act to look forward to.
TikTok star Sam Ryder is representing the country this year with his song Space Man after rising to fame on the social media platform for his song covers over lockdown.
For the first time in many years, the UK's odds of winning are looking very good, with current rankings suggesting he is fourth favourite to win.
The favourite to win is currently pegged as Ukrainian entry, Kalush Orchestra.
But when is Eurovision 2022 taking to our TV screens this year?
Eurovision 2022 will be showing on BBC One on Saturday 14 May. It will start at 8pm and continue on until late.
Being broadcast live from Turin, Italy, the UK broadcast will be hosted by Graham Norton.
Every year the host country of Eurovision changes, with the winner of the annual competition becoming the new host.
Last years unexpected winner was Maneskin, an Italian rock band with their song Zitti E Buoni.
This year pop star Mika will be hosting the show live from Turin, alongside Alessandro Cattelan and Laura Pausin.
The UK is notoriously not the most successful country to compete in the love competition.
Last year, the nation received the dreaded nil points with James Newman singing Embers.
However, the UK has won the competition an impressive five times in the past, with most recent victory being 1997.
And things are looking very hopeful this year as the nation keeps their fingers firmly crossed for a successful year.
Current favourites to win, Ukraine have been given special permission to leave the country to compete to win the coveted competition.
