Jonny Bongo said: “As soon as Liverpool received confirmation to host Eurovision we wanted to do something special to honor this incredible event coming to the city.
“It’s a mammoth couple of weeks before the actual finals and knowing that hundreds of thousands of people are coming here from all over the world is absolutely amazing.

Cheryl Baker, Mike Nolan and Jay Aston – three names iconic in Eurovision history – were once members of the Eurovision winning group Bucks Fizz, now known as The Fizz.
With a string of 20+ hits under their belts including their hit count A country that gives hope, My camera never lies and of course, Have a think, they never cease to amaze their audience with their vocal power and their excellent entertainment value. 2021 was her 40th anniversary year since winning the Eurovision Song Contest.
Katrina and the Waves were the hugely successful female-fronted four-piece rock band of the 1980s and ’90s, built around the infectiously melodic, ’60s-influenced songs of former Soft Boy guitarist Kimberley Rew and the distinctively powerful vocals of Katrina Leskanich.
They are best known for their 1985 evergreen feel-good anthem run in the sunshine. In 1997 Katrina and the Waves Love shines a light won the Eurovision Song Contest by the widest margin ever, followed by an unprecedented four straight performances top of the pops and a number three in the UK Singles Chart.
