Hi, guys, it's Friday.

0:00:100:00:11

I'm Whitney.

0:00:110:00:12

This is Newsround.

0:00:120:00:13

Coming up...

0:00:130:00:14

From the wonderful to the weird.

0:00:140:00:16

We get ready for Eurovision.

0:00:160:00:19

And the sea ice that looks like dragons' skin.

0:00:190:00:23

First up it's the Eurovision Song Contest this weekend and singers

0:00:320:00:36

from across Europe and Australia will be battling it out

0:00:360:00:39

to be crowned the winner.

0:00:390:00:40

Take a look!

0:00:400:00:41

Let's talk Europe.

0:00:410:00:44

No, not the continent.

0:00:440:00:46

No, nothing to do with Brexit.

0:00:460:00:48

It's the song contest!

0:00:480:00:51

Full of dodgy dances, creative costumes and,

0:00:510:00:54

of course, singing talent.

0:00:540:00:57

It can only be Eurovision.

0:00:570:00:59

So, what can we look forward to this year?

0:00:590:01:02

Well, for the last two years Australia has been allowed to take

0:01:020:01:05

part even though they're not in Europe.

0:01:050:01:07

But the country is a huge fan of the competition, so why not?!

0:01:070:01:10

They're trying their luck with this entry.

0:01:100:01:13

# But it don't come easy...

0:01:130:01:20

If you fancy watching a more unusual act, check out Romania.

0:01:200:01:23

Their contestants yodel.

0:01:230:01:25

# Yodel-e-hee.

0:01:250:01:27

# Yodel-e-hee, yodel-e-hee.

0:01:270:01:29

# Yodel-e-hee.

0:01:290:01:33

But the big favourite to win this year is Italy.

0:01:330:01:36

It's a catchy tune.

0:01:360:01:39

Then an ape turns up in the middle of the routine.

0:01:390:01:42

It's surely going to do well.

0:01:420:01:45

Former X Factor contestant Lucie Jones will be flying the flag

0:01:450:01:50

for the UK with this song, called Never Give Up On You.

0:01:500:01:56

The UK's won the contest five times before, the last being 20 years ago.

0:01:560:02:00

Can Lucie bring it back for us?

0:02:000:02:03

Good luck, everyone.

0:02:030:02:07

Sport next and Chelsea will win the Premier League

0:02:070:02:09

if they beat West Brom tonight.

0:02:090:02:12

They lead Tottenham by seven points, and need just one win from three

0:02:120:02:15

games to be sure of the title.

0:02:150:02:17

It will be their second title in three seasons.

0:02:170:02:21

Sticking with footie it's the Women's FA Cup final.

0:02:210:02:25

Birmingham City take on league champions Manchester City at Wembley

0:02:250:02:32

tomorrow night.

0:02:320:02:33

Saturday's final will see two close

0:02:330:02:34

friends go head-to-head - Manchester City's centre-back

0:02:340:02:36

Steph Houghton and Birmingham striker Ellen White.

0:02:360:02:39

City are favourites to win and Steph says playing in the final has

0:02:390:02:41

always been her aim.

0:02:410:02:45

You always dream of playing at Wembley and you always dream

0:02:450:02:47

of captaining your side.

0:02:470:02:49

Ever since I have joined this club it is about trying to win the FA Cup

0:02:490:02:53

and we are one step closer to doing that.

0:02:530:02:55

Definitely up there with the stuff that I have achieved so far.

0:02:550:02:59

Now take a closer look at this - it's ice, but not as you've

0:02:590:03:03

ever seen it before.

0:03:030:03:06

It's a massive sheet of ice that looks just like a dragon's scales.

0:03:060:03:09

Hayley's got this.

0:03:090:03:11

When you think of dragons you probably think of hot,

0:03:110:03:14

fire breathing and sharp teeth.

0:03:140:03:17

But what about freezing cold ice.

0:03:170:03:20

Some scientists on a research trip to Antarctica have

0:03:200:03:23

spotted dragon-like ice.

0:03:230:03:30

A rare kind of sea ice that has not been seen in ten years.

0:03:300:03:34

It sounds cool but how did it all happen?

0:03:340:03:36

Wind in the Antarctic can be extremely powerful,

0:03:360:03:38

sometimes with the same force as a hurricane.

0:03:380:03:40

They are strong enough to pick up the ice

0:03:400:03:42

on the surface as it freezes.

0:03:420:03:44

This lets the cold air reach the water below that also freezes,

0:03:440:03:47

forming other layers of ice underneath.

0:03:470:03:51

An intense amount of sea ice is being formed,

0:03:510:03:53

in part due to the freezing temperatures but also

0:03:530:03:56

to these very strong winds.

0:03:560:03:58

These winds have the effect of pushing away the sea ice growth.

0:03:580:04:02

When we can see layer upon layer of ice lying on top of each

0:04:020:04:06

other it creates a bumpy, scale-like pattern like

0:04:060:04:08

the skin of a dragon.

0:04:080:04:11

The scientists who spotted it this time are calling it bizarre.

0:04:110:04:21

We think it is totally clawsome.

0:04:220:04:23

Now this kind of thing would give anyone a fright!

0:04:230:04:26

Imagine a lovely day paddle-boarding at the beach,

0:04:260:04:27

when suddenly you hear this?

0:04:270:04:29

Attention in the water.

0:04:290:04:30

This is the Orange County Sheriff's Department.

0:04:300:04:33

Be advised, State Parks is asking us to make an announcement to let

0:04:330:04:36

you know that you are paddle boarding next to approximately

0:04:360:04:39

15 great white sharks.

0:04:390:04:41

They are advising that you exit the water in a calm manner.

0:04:410:04:46

The sharks are as close as the surf line.

0:04:460:04:52

Yep, I kid you not, 15 sharks were spotted swimming next

0:04:520:04:54

to a group of paddle boarders in California in America.

0:04:540:04:57

The sheriff's helicopter crew warned everyone to get out of the water,

0:04:570:05:00

and luckily no-one was hurt.

0:05:000:05:02

Urgh!

0:05:110:05:12

Bleugh! Eugh!

0:05:120:05:14

If you found that on the floor, you would put it down the toilet!

0:05:140:05:16
