It’s Time for EUROVISION 2016 ! (our TOP 20 this year)




The Eurovision Song Contest 2016 will be the 61st edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. It will take place in the Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden, following Sweden’s victory at the 2015 contest in Vienna with the song “Heroes“, performed by Måns Zelmerlöw.

This will be the third time the contest has taken place in Stockholm, after 1975 and 2000, the latter also being held at the Globe.

The contest will consist of two semi-finals on 10 and 12 May and the final on 14 May 2016. The three live shows will be hosted by Zelmerlöw and Petra Mede.

Forty-two countries will participate. Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia and Ukraine will return after absences from recent contests, while Australia will also return after debuting as a special guest in 2015.

Portugalwill withdraw, largely due to their national broadcaster’s insufficient promotion of their music-based media, as well as a poorly structured selection process, while Romania had originally planned to participate, but were forcefully withdrawn due to repeated non-payment of debts by their national broadcaster to the European Broadcasting Union (EBU).

The contest will also be the first to implement a new voting system since 1975, with each country now awarding two sets of points: one from their professional jury and another from televoting.
