Since June, the 15 nations have been deciding their songs and now the wait is over, all songs have been announced, all in time for the big night which will be 22nd November. The Delegations meet on the 13th and 14th October, during this time the running order will be announced.

The 15 participants are hoping to follow in the footsteps of Alexey Zhigalkovich, from Belarus, who won the contest last year with his song 'S Druzyami'
