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? :/

the deadline is for songs to be released to the EBU not for releasing of the songs.
they can release the song whenever

MoreMusicLessGlamourPlease: “I don’t understand why there is a picture of Conchita in the link to this calendar….she won in 2014…..(and do we really need to be reminded…?) )”

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

R+, mocosuburbian: Good idea, y’all! This page is now linked from two places. It’s in the top menu bar above, and on the home page you’ll find it in the right column. I’m glad you’re finding our calendar useful!

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!
