The One Show: Rylan and Scott Mills give their Eurovision insight
The Eurovision Song Contest kicked off with the first semi-final on the BBC and viewers were introduced to hosts Ukrainian rockstar Julia Sanina, actress Hannah Waddingham, and singing sensation Alesha Dixon.
As the trio walked onto the stage, they were met with roaring cheers from the crowd as Rylan and Scott Mills commented on how stunning they all looked.
Alesha was wearing a pink and red dress with a giant bow covering her chest and viewers were quick to comment on her choice of outfit.
@rinoa2530 said: “Alesha looks like an unwanted Christmas present that was never unwrapped #Eurovision2023”
Liam Davis added: “Did Alesha just put together whatever wrapping paper and bows left in the house. #Eurovision #Eurovision2023”
Alesha proceeded to perform a special Eurovision rap, which left some viewers cringing as they continued to comment on her appearance.
Mark joked: “Alesha has come gift-wrapped I see. #Eurovision”
Rhys Benjamin questioned: “What is Alesha wearing? #eurovision”

After all 15 songs have been performed, the voting begins and all countries in the first semi-final, along with three pre-qualified countries – Germany, France and Italy, will cast their votes.
There are a number of interval acts throughout the night including Rebecca Furguson, Alyosha and Rita Ora.
Viewers will also be treated to a one-minute preview of Germany, France and Italy’s performances.
