The Eurovision song is tonight and things could get very theatrical. The annual singing competition will take place in Vienna this year, but you can get the party started on twitter ahead of the big show. 

Last year's winner Conchita Wurst highlighted Twitter's event feature ahead of its launch.  

Each country will have a hashflag they can tweet to show support for the country of their choice. You may remember this idea from the World Cup and the Election. But this is the Eurovision song contest we're talking about so it's way more important.
