The semi-final allocation draw for the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 has just taken place at the City Hall in Stockholm, Sweden, and here are the countries that will perform in the first semi-final of Eurovision 2016. (You will find the countries performing in the second semi-final here).
The countries that will perform in the first half of the Eurovision 2016 first semi-final are:
The countries that will vote in the second-half of the first semi-final are:
18 countries will perform in the first semi-final and 19 countries in the second. The running order for each of the countries has not been decided yet. That will be announced later.
The first semi-final will be held in Stockholm on May 10th, 2016.
Now all we have to do is wait and see if any of these countries produce good songs, and which semi-final is lopsided when it comes to the music. Because one is always much better than the other one.
