In the past, the running order was decided via a draw however the Swedish broadcaster last year requested to have the final decision to ensure that every song will stand out and songs of the same style wouldn’t cancel each other out by performing one after another. Denmark decided to continue with the system which is considered by some as controversial.

On January 20th, a draw was held to determine the Semi Final allocation as well as in what part of the show (1st half vs second half) a country would perform. This is to ensure the delegations can work on their travel plans.

Join the convo HERE and discuss the running order. Do you think it’s a fair outcome or could have the producer done a better job?
