Results of the Semi-final allocation draw!

In Stockholm City Hall, the allocation draw, hosted by Alexandra Pascalidou and Jovan Radomir has just finished and now we now who will be competing in which semi-final (and in which half) and in which of the two semi-finals the Big 5 and the host country, Sweden, will be voting!

Executive Supervisor for the Eurovision Song Contest, Jon Ola Sand told us that German broadcaster ARD had already requested to vote in semi-final 2 and that Sweden would be voting in semi-final 1.
After that, a draw commenced to determine which of the prequalified countries would be voting in which semi-final (the image can be clicked to make it bigger):

With this finished, the semi-final allocation for the remaining 37 countries could begin. This was done pot by pot (from pot 1 to pot 6) and semi-final by semi-final (the first six (one from every pot) to semi 1, the next six to semi 2 and son on). Also a draw was held to decide wether these countries would be performing in the first or second half of their semi-final final.
This is what it looks like this year (this one can be clicked as well for a closer look):
