Say last last last! Running order for ESC 2019 revealed

by | Apr 2, 2019 | Eurovision, Featured |

The running order for the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest has just been announced!

As has been the case for several years now, the running order has been determined not by a random draw but by the producers, the aim being “to create the most exciting television shows possible and ensure each act will stand out”.

The first semi-final will be opened by last year’s runner-up nation Cyprus. The unusual visuals of Australia and Iceland are placed back to back in the second half, while the show will close with a blast of colour thanks to San Marino and Serhat’s “Say Na Na Na”.

1. Cyprus
2. Montenegro
3. Finland
4. Poland
5. Slovenia
6. Czech Republic
7. Hungary
8. Belarus
9. Serbia
10. Belgium
11. Georgia
12. Australia
13. Iceland
14. Estonia
15. Portugal
16. Greece
17. San Marino

The second semi-final is topped and tailed by perennial rivals Armenia and Azerbaijan. The current bookmakers’ favourite, Duncan Laurence from the Netherlands, is given a prime slot near the end of the running order, with the other favourites – Switzerland, Sweden and Russia – evenly spaced throughout the show.

1. Armenia
2. Ireland
3. Moldova
4. Switzerland
5. Latvia
6. Romania
7. Denmark
8. Sweden
9. Austria
10. Croatia
11. Malta
12. Lithuania
13. Russia
14. Albania
15. Norway
16. The Netherlands
17. North Macedonia
18. Azerbaijan

Now that we have the running order, stay tuned for the launch of our annual Line-Up Check series, in which our editors Shi, Felix and Martin turn their attention to each of the participating entries in turn. Debates and disagreements guaranteed!

Perfection. Just perfection.

If you're Felix, Carousel's "That Night" is the kind of song that makes you wistful for "A Century Of Love".

Not the *greatest* compliment in the world as our #Eurovision 2019 line-up check moves on to #Latvia... 🇱🇻

"If Europe is in a pop mood when it counts, then #Switzerland can go very very far this year. Victory not excluded."

Luca Hänni's "She Got Me" gets a big thumbs-up in the latest edition of our #Eurovision 2019 line-up check! 🇨🇭

"Every bit as pedestrian and everyday as the 'seen it a million times before' song title suggests."

It's shrugs all round for Anna Odobescu and "Stay" from #Moldova in the latest instalment of the #Eurovision line-up check!
