Live blog: The Eurovision Song Contest final

Jedward getting down to business at this year's Eurovision.

Jedward were left dangerously close to the Waterline last Tuesday, as the nice folks at Eurovision HQ left it until last to announce that they had progressed.

But all that tension has only made us all the more excited for the final, which kicks off at 8pm Irish time.

Sweden might be hot favourites for European glory - but if they can break the Eastern bloc, there's no reason we can't! So join Aidan Coughlan right here from 7.45pm on Saturday, as we track the twins' bid to become Ireland's first champs since 1996.

And don't forget to join the debate: send your comments here, or tweet @aidancoughlan.
