After Round 1 on Tuesday (May 10), the contest that started with 42 countries’ contestants is down to just ten. They head to the semi-final in Stockholm today, before going on to the “grand final” on Saturday (May 14). For the first time ever, Saturday’s final will be broadcast on US television, on the cable network Logo.

But do not fret, cord-cutters—or those of you hoping to catch the semi-final from your desks this afternoon!

You can find it online at Eurovision.TV, and follow along with live updates. Those updates may not help much when it comes to deciphering WTF you are watching, but they will at least identify the country onstage, and point out some pertinent, if obvious, details. For example: “Serhat from San Marino performs I Didn’t Know wearing a burgundy outfit. He even has a matching hat. The female dancers are in the background and are wearing silver-coloured costumes.”

Unlike, say, the MTV Awards, the free live-streams of this event actually work. I watched the first round on Tuesday. I caught leotards, capes, and suave disco tunes, and I even learned about a country I’d never heard of. Thanks, Serhat from San Marino!

The semi-final will be today at 3 pm eastern US time, and the grand final happens at the same time on Saturday (May 14). Enjoy!
