Eurovision is back! The 67th edition of the European song competition is currently underway in England.

Last year, Ukrainian folk-rap group Kalush Orchestra took home first prize, which means Ukraine should've been the host for this year's edition. However, due to the ongoing Russian invasion, the runner up, the United Kingdom, is hosting the competition in Liverpool on behalf of Ukraine.

For the first time, U.S. viewers can vote in the competition—American viewers will be counted in the "Rest of the World" category. (More info on Eurovision's website.)

How to watch Eurovision from the U.S.:

Eurovision's semi-finals and grand final will stream in the U.S. on Peacock. Per the streamer, "The Eurovision Song Contest began as a technical experiment in television broadcasting: the live, simultaneous, transnational broadcast that Europe has now been watching for nearly 70 years was in the late 1950s a marvel. Over the years the format has evolved into the week-long, boundary pushing, technologically innovative, multi show spectacular we enjoy today."

Johnny Weir, former Olympic ice skater, will host Peacock's Eurovision telecast for the final.

Here's the schedule:

First Semi-Final: Tuesday, May 9, at 3 p.m. eastern / 12 noon pacific
