The running orders of the two semi-finals of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest have been revealed.
This morning the EBU has revealed the full running orders for the two semi-finals on May 18th and 20th. Opening the first semi-final is Lithuania, with Malta in the closing position. In the second semi-final, San Marino will open, and Denmark will close. The full running orders are as follows:
Semi-Final One (Tuesday 18th May)
- North Macedonia
Semi-Final Two (Thursday 20th May)
- San Marino
- Czech Republic
Each country competing in the semi-finals took part in a random draw which determined which semi-final they would participate in and whether they would perform in the first or second half of the show. From there, the show producers decide the order in which they will perform. This system has been in place since 2013.
The Eurovision Song Contest 2021 will take place on May 18, 20, and 22 in Rotterdam. A total of 39 countries will take part in the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Eurovision 2020 was due to be held in Rotterdam after Duncan Laurence gave the Netherlands their first victory since 1975 with the song “Arcade”. After the cancelation of the 2020 contest, it was decided that Rotterdam would host the 2021 contest instead.
