Before the draw properly started, it was explained by Martin Österdahl, that the Israeli broadcaster (KAN) had requested to be placed into the second semi-final, due to the first semi-final taking place over an Israeli memorial day, hence Israel was automatically placed into the second semi-final.

This also meant, that it automatically granted that the first semi-final will consist of 15 countries, while the second semi-final will consist of 16 countries. Of course, the top 10 from both semi-finals, will still advance to the final. The semi-finals will be purely decided by televote, but a back-up jury will be used, in case it’s needed. Meanwhile, the result of the final, will still be decided by both juries and televote.
