Saturday night Europe will choose its song of the year, and here is the order of finalists:
- Czech Republic
- The Netherlands
- United Kingdom
Contest organizers took the randomly drawn slots that each artist drew which placed them in the first or second half of the show, and placed them in a running order that makes sense technically and also makes for a good experience for viewers.
Two of the top entries, Belgium and Armenia, have been placed at the beginning and end. The remaining strong contenders have generally been spaced out through the evening. There used to be a certain superstition about which places in the running order were lucky and unlucky, but recent years has mostly disproved such speculation.
Tonight’s dress rehearsal will tell us more about the running order and its progression when we see and hear it all in action!
