Guys from the US, how you are going to watch Eurovision this year? This article https://medium.com/@grant.cerr/how-to-watch-eurovision-in-the-us-2019-free-705712ed0ab4 says that it is only possible with a VPN. Is that true?

Reply to  Jon Hola Sand

The only country who draws for the running order is the host country. Israel drew their grand final position at the HoD meeting earlier this week. The running order of the semi-finals is determined by the show producers and is expected to be announced some time in April. The allocation draw for the grand final halves traditionally takes place at the qualifiers press conference after directly each semi-final. In some years, the Big 5 have drawn their halves on the red carpet at the opening ceremony. The running order for the grand final is usually announced late at night after… Read more »

I believe they’re keeping it in Albanian. The Eurovision version will be under the three-minute time limit. The last reports were of an orchestra being used, so it sounds like they’re keeping the big FiK sound. Very promising!

Short answer: we don’t know yet. For 2019, the semi-finals will be broadcast live and the broadcaster is looking to hold them in locations other than Tallinn, but these locations have not been confirmed yet. 🙂

Reply to  Porky

This reply comes four months late (sorry!) but it’s worth replying in case anyone wants to know. The Wiwi Jam is a live music event held during Eurovision week in the host city. We invite competing artists and other Eurovision icons to perform their entries. It’s a super fun event, and if you ever get the chance to go, you should – we love to see Wiwi readers there!

I think all countries must have sent the final version of their entries to EBU in the 13th of March, but they can reveal it to the public whenever they like.

Wait… so I’m just wondering… why does Germany get to reveal their official entry a month (or about a month) after the deadline for all entries to be revealed? :/

As we look forward to Eurovision 2017, we like to celebrate the previous winners of the song contest.

Hey Wiwibloggs, could you insert this calendar in the “Eurovision 2017” section along with the Participating countries list?

It’s a little hard to find the calendar, but it’s really useful 🙂

Wiwifriends, isn’t running order announced on 5th April? You’ve written 8th April, and EBU has said it is going to be announced on Tuesday, ergo April 5th (today)

When’s the running order allocation draw? Austria’s in 14th but is it today or another day? I NEED to know, NEED to know, so my Eurovision Song Contest 2015 bracket will be complete. F**k the NBA Finals bracket. The ESC’s where it’s at!
