The organizers of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, SVT, and the official website of the Competition have just revealed which country is in which of the pots for the allocation draw!
The 37 semi finalists have been divided into 6 pots, based on their voting history. This helps reducing the so called “neighbour voting” and “bloc voting”. This is how the semi finalists have been allocated per pots:
- F.Y.R. Macedonia
- Bosnia & Herzegovina
- The Netherlands
- Czech Republic
- San Marino
- Israel (pre-assigned to the second Semi-Final)
The draw will take place on Monday at 11:15 CET live from Stockholm. It has been decided that the first semi final will have 18 participants, while the second semi final will have 19. The allocation draw will be hosted by Alexandra Pascalidou and Jovan Radomir.
