Gun.az reports that already 43 countries have confirmed participation, which is complete shock to all of us. According to the news site the most recent conformations have come from Albania, Bulgaria, FYR Macedonia, Ireland, Malta, Moldova, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Russia, Serbia, Ukraine and the United Kingdom. Add all these onto the list they had already; Armenia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia, Cyrpus, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Montenegro, the Netherlands, Norway, Romania, San Marino, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Turkey.

Now before I get onto all the people who are thinking this website is worse that Wikipedia with making things up lets look as who is missing from the list. Iceland is not on the list yet, now Iceland has not made an official announcment yet but that has not stopped them so far. They have also not put Portugal up, but there are still doubts over their participation due to RTP being privatised, during the Portugese governements new reforms.

Now look who is on the list, on the 12th Gun.az said that Montenegro is coming back to the contest along with the Czech Republic who every year is stuck on a list of they will come back but local fan sites in Slovakia. Armenia is on the list as confirmed whilt News.az says that Armenia are yet to say yes or no,m which is true.

I think it is now time to see what wikipedia says and go through the nations that are included in wikipedia and how many have confirmed:

  • Azerbaijan: 42 nations
  • Bosnia & Herzegovina: 19
  • Denmark: 13
  • Germany: 29
  • United Kingdom: 19
  • Estonia: 16
  • Spain: 22
  • Finland: 26
  • France: 27
  • Croatia: 31
  • Hungary: 42
  • Italy: 21
  • Lithuania: 18
  • Macedonia: 10
  • Netherlands: 19
  • Norway: 29 (Kosovo Debut)
  • Poland: 29
  • Portugal: 16
  • Romania: 31
  • Sweden: 19
  • Turkey: 19
  • Ukraine: 21

It’s just a big mess in the Azerbaijani media at the minute with each new site trying to get the latest eurovision scoop, which has led to papers announcing the same number of nations that participated in Germany, we will not know the true number till the end of the year, which is still 4 months away.
