Two shows down and one to go; the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) along with the Swedish national broadcaster SVT has released the full running order of Saturday’s grand final.
With all of the 26 finalists now known and the halves randomly selected at the semi-final qualifiers press conferences, it was down to the EBU and SVT to decide the running order for the final of the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest, the same process which has been used to decide the running order over the last few years.
Sweden, the winner of last year’s contest and the 2016 host nation, had their draw random selected prior to the running order announcement, where it was random decided that the Swedish representative, Frans, would perform in 9th position in the grand final.
