Pop star Rita Ora is set to perform her latest hit single "Praising You" at the 67th annual Eurovision song contest, which will be held in Liverpool's M and S Bank Arena on May 9. The 32-year-old singer will be among a series of Eurovision icons, Ukrainian and British stars scheduled to perform at the semi-finals, according to reports.

Rita has a personal history with the song contest, having auditioned to represent Britain in 2009 when she was just 17 years old. However, she withdrew from the competition because "it didn't feel right" for her at the time. This year, she returns to the Eurovision stage after more than a decade, ready to showcase her new music to a global audience.

The performance will take place during the interval of the first semi-final, which will be shown on BBC One and BBC iPlayer. The second semi-final will be broadcast on May 11 and feature a range of acts, including live interval performances from former Eurovision contestants and drag performers.

This year's Eurovision aims to symbolize unity through music, with the UK hosting the contest on behalf of Ukraine, which won the competition in 2022. The event takes on added significance given the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine, with the contest acting as a platform for countries to come together in celebration of diversity and acceptance.

The Eurovision song contest has a long and storied history, dating back to 1956 when it was first held in Lugano, Switzerland. Since then, the competition has become a beloved cultural institution, with millions of viewers tuning in from around the world each year to watch the spectacle of colorful costumes, energetic performances, and catchy tunes.

While the specific performers and songs may change from year to year, the enduring appeal of Eurovision remains the same: a celebration of music, diversity, and the human spirit. And with Rita Ora set to take the stage this year, it promises to be a performance that fans of the contest won't soon forget.
