Mr. Jon Ola Sand confirmed this statement in Glasgow, Scotland, where he is attending the Host City Conference. According to Host City Magazine, Mr. Sand said that the interest in taking part at Eurovision 2016 is huge and EBU later confirmed on Twitter that the full line-up will be revealed soon:

According to ESCToday, 39 countries have officially confirmed participation which means that other two countries will be joining the contest. Remember that Romania hasn’t officially confirmed participation yet as their participation is still being discussed: “We’re still waiting for an official piece of news… it still hasn’t been discussed in The administrative Board, and only they can take a decision… “, stated TVR press contact to ESC+Plus.
Australia, which took part as guest at last year’s contest, is still a possibility along with Croatia, whose participation seems unlikely. Will we have any surprises at this year’s line-up?
The 61st edition of the Eurovision Song Contest will be held in Stockholm (Sweden) on May 10, 12 and 14.
