Tomorrow, the allocation draw will determine which countries will take part in the respective semi finals. 16 countries will take part in semi 1 whereas there are 17 competitors in semi 2. The EBU has just announced the five pots for tomorrow’s allocation draw – they have been calculated on the basis of the votes of the last 10 years to provide a fair distribution of countries.
The draw will take place tomorrow at 13:25 CET in Vienna’s city hall. The slightly confusing procedure (see tweet below) will be presented by Andi Knoll and Kati Bellowitsch. Executive Supervisor Jon Ola Sand and Thomas Niedermeyer from the voting partner Digame will be present as well. You’ll be able to watch the draw live on eurovision.tv or songcontest.orf.at!

What do you think about the pots? Will they provide a fair distribution of countries?
