During the press conferences of the Big 5 countries the allocation to determine the start position either the first or second half in the Grand Final has been drawn. The host country’s start position has been determined some weeks ago it’s #22. The singers of the Big 5 countries picked their tickets as follow:
Italy – first half
Spain – second half
Germany – second half
United Kingdom – second half
France – second half
It is said that the second half has higher chances for a good placing. Interesting to see that the big favourite is now in the first half. But a good song could start anywhere.

About me: As one of the founders of eurovisionlive.com I am responsible for the interviews with the singers and the editorial content. My passion for the Eurovision Song Contest exists since my early childhood. The exotic music, different cultures and languages have given a lot of inspiration to me. Since my very first ESC in Dublin 1994 I particularly appreciate the get together and friendship of all the nationalities and Riverdance was a thrill!
