Welcome to popular Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a popular Wikipedia page every day.

With 228,496 views on Thursday, 9 May 2024 our article of the day is Eurovision Song Contest 2024.

The Eurovision Song Contest 2024 is the 68th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. It is taking place in Malmö, Sweden, following the country's victory at the 2023 contest with the song "Tattoo" by Loreen. Organised by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and host broadcaster Sveriges Television (SVT), the contest is being held at the Malmö Arena, and consists of two semi-finals on 7 and 9 May, and a final on 11 May 2024. The three live shows are presented by Petra Mede and Malin Åkerman, with Mede having previously taken on the role in 2013 and 2016.

Thirty-seven countries are participating in the contest, with Luxembourg returning 31 years after its last participation in 1993, while Romania opted not to participate after doing so the previous year. The inclusion of Israel among the participants in the context of the ongoing Israel–Hamas war was harshly criticised, with strengthened the security measures in place for the event.
