Just like that, the 2024 Eurovision Song Contest has started, the show was seen and in the end, a decision was made. However, our focus for now, will be on the 10 countries that made it out of the first semi-final. Let’s finally dive into their draw.

Who goes where?

As a reminder, congratulation to all 10 qualifiers, but also a huge congrats to all the participants of the first semi-final, all of them created a wonderful show, full of emotion, excitement and joy. With that said, these were the 10 qualifiers of tonight, being:

Just like 2023, a televote was solely in charge of picking the 10 finalists for the final, so you know, that the public support will be there on Saturday.

For the 2024 contest, it was revealed that a new format for the draw would take place. A “producer’s choice” possibility was added for 2024, which means that the producer can place countries anywhere in the final. However, some countries can still pull the first or second half.

First Half

  • 🇱🇹 Lithuania
  • 🇮🇪 Ireland
  • 🇱🇺 Luxembourg

Second Half
