    I really can’t predict about which ukranian city of these 6 will gonna win the bid
    to host the next year’s EuroVision Song Contest.
    Would be nice if a big city like Kiev hosts the Vision of 2017
    but on the other way it would also be cool if another new different city
    that has never host the ESC before, gets chosen to host the contest instead.

    13 years had passed since the same city got to host again the EuroVision
    that was COPENHAGEN of course [2001 – 2014]
    If KIEV gets chosen to host the EuroVision next year
    will be even less years 4 our Contest to return to the same city.
    2005 – 2017: 12 years

    These are all the 10 (*11 technically) cities that have hosted the EuroVision more than 1 times.

    ~ DUBLIN
    hosted the EuroVision a record of 6 times!
    [only the EuroVision of 1993 was not hosted in Dublin)

    ~ LONDON
    hosted the EuroVision 4 times.

    ~ STOCKHOLM & COPENHAGEN
    both hosted the EuroVision 3 times.
    (The ESC has never get hosted by any other Danish city/town in DENMARK yet)

    ~ MALMO ~ OSLO ~ VIENNA ~ CANNES ~ JERUSALEM ~ HAGUE
    all hosted the EuroVision 2 times.
    (The ESC has never get hosted yet by any other city/town in both AUSTRIA & ISRAEL)

    * LUXEMBURG CITY has hosted the EuroVision 4 times
    (but there wasn’t any other city in this small country to host the ESC for obvious reason,
    so its special case that should not be listed on this category with these cities of course)
