Sweden and Norway drawn into semi-finals to avoid ‘ticket chaos’


Once again, EBU has decided together with the host broadcaster to draw two of Denmark’s closest neighbors into different semi-finals. This is to make sure that there will be enough tickets for all nationalities, in other words, to make sure Norwegian and Swedish fans are not the only ones in the arena during the semi-final in case these countries would compete in the same show.

Sweden will compete in the first semi-final and Norway in the second semi-final. The draw took place in EBU headquarters in Geneva.

Other semi-final countries will be drawn into semi-finals later on.
