West End Eurovision 2013 takes place tonight (23 May 2013) from 11.30pm at the West End's Dominion Theatre, and Whatsonstage.com will be there!

Katrina Leskanich of Katrina and the Waves - former winners of the Eurovision Song Contest - will do the honours as the special act at this year's event, which sees casts from the West End's biggest shows do battle with Eurovision covers in aid of entertainment charity TheatreMAD.

Participating shows this year include: Spamalot, Billy Elliot, Wicked, Rock of Ages, Once, Viva Forever, Top Hat, Mamma Mia!, Phantom of the Opera and A Chorus Line.

Joining Russell Grant on this year's celebrity judging panel are Jodie Prenger (winner of BBC's talent search I'd Do Anything) and Rylan Clark (X Factor finalist and Celebrity Big Brother winner).

TheatreMAD's chairman, David Pendlebury said: "We are absolutely delighted that Jodie and Rylan have kindly agreed to support this year's West End Eurovision and the work of The Make A Difference Trust as members of our Celebrity Judging Panel. Having both been on the receiving end of the judges' comments on I'd Do Anything and The X Factor respectively, it will be a fun opportunity for them to offer their comments to those shows taking part."

Richard Gauntlett will be joined by celebrity guest hosts Sinitta, Christopher Biggins, Kerry Ellis and Harriet Thorpe to curate the performances.

Last year's contest was won by the Whatsonstage.com Award-winning Sweeney Todd, led by former Eurovision entrant Michael Ball (see video above).
