As formerly announced there won’t be any draw of the running order anymore. The official reason for this is that “We want every song to shine” explained by Jon Ola San (Executive Supervisor). The decision has been highly criticized. Especially Turkey has not been happy with that and has been withdrawn this year’s participation. Some of the countries which will be place in the first three positions might have lower chances to win, judged by the poor results in recent years.
The producers of the show and the EBU Executive producer will propose the running order of the final. The 29th March has been announced of the running order setting. The host entry Sweden has already been drawn on #16 in the grand final. As Sweden is the host country it is automatically set in the grand final, without the qualification round. The running order of the final will be drawn during the press conference of the first or second semi final.
