After the exciting outcome or the Semi-Final 2, the final line up of the Grand Final has been revealed. The “Big 5” countries did not have to pass the semi-finals, so they automatically have a secured place in the Grand Final. From each of the two semi-finals there are ten qualifiers. In this competition 11 countries did not qualify.

In previous years, the running order for the Eurovision Song Contest was determined through a draw. However, in present times, the responsibility of deciding the running order lies with the host broadcaster and the reference group of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU). This shift in approach has introduced a subtle element of direction to the excitement surrounding the running order. The intention behind this change is to prevent consecutive performances of similar genres, such as three ballads in a row or three energetic songs back-to-back. Ultimately, this method has been widely acknowledged as successful, as it ensures a diverse and captivating experience from the opening act to the last entry.


This is the running order for the Grand Final:

  1. Austria
  2. Portugal
  3. Switzerland
  4. Poland
  5. Serbia
  6. France
  7. Cyprus
  8. Spain
  9. Sweden
  10. Albania
  11. Italy
  12. Estonia
  13. Finland
  14. Czech Republic
