by Michalis Vranis 176 views

The Eurovision Song Contest is turning to a new page as of today, that the announcement of the semi-finals running order takes place. After a very long time, the sem-finals running order will be decided by the production company of this year’s edition of the contest.

The new rules were disclosed last November when all of the changes were approved and announced by the Eurovision Song Contest Reference group.

The running order for the final will be arranged in a similar way. During the winners’ press conferences of each semi-final a draw will take place to determine in which half of the final each country will perform. Once all qualifiers are known, the producers will determine the exact running order of the final and this will be announced on 17 May at 3 o’clock at the latest.
