And we have it, not even that long after the second semi-final ended and we know all final participants: the running order for that same final!
The running order was made by the Contest Producer of this year’s edition, Christer Björkman, aided by Executive Supervisor Jon Ola Sand, who approved of the draw as well, together with the chairman of the Reference Group.
The host country Israel had drawn their starting position during the Head of Delegations meeting back in mid-March, whereas the Big 5 had drawn the half they’d perform in after their first rehearsal and finally the semi-final qualifiers at their qualifiers’ press conference!
Working with that as limitation a running order was made, on which the EBU explains:
The running order is being decided to ensure each act has the opportunity to stand out amongst the crowd. To come to a decision, the producers look at the genre of music, whether a song is performed by a solo singer or group, the use of props, the tempo of the song and various other aspects of each act.
Now without any further ado, here it is!
- Czech Republic
- San Marino
- North Macedonia
- The Netherlands
- United Kingdom
Here is a recap of all the songs in the final, in abovementioned running order:
