Running order for Eurovision 2017 semi-finals revealed, check it out!

Today, the running order for the semi-finals of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, scheduled to take place on May 9 and 11 from Kiev, has just been released on Eurovision.tv

The order of the places where each country will be ready to perform their entry in May will all be decided by the host broadcaster UA:PBC with EBU having the final approval, as it happened from 2013 when SVT decided to start off this procedure in order to avoid similar genres of songs being performed repeatedly.

About Adrián Valiente (Spain)

Adrián Valiente (Spain)
I love the Eurovision Song Contest not only because of its amazing production but it also gives me the chance to discover new music every year. I've been watching it since 2002, since then I became a huge follower, mostly because of the interest TVE put on it with Rosa from Spain. I've attended the contest several times in the last few years. I also attended the Junior Eurovision in Malta and Bulgaria where we lived an amazing experience thanks to all delegations and PBS/BNT organising team.
