This draw also determined in which semi-final each of the Big 5 countries and The Netherlands will vote:
As in previous years, the participating countries were allocated into six different pots based on historical voting patterns calculated by the official voting partner Digame.
The first part of the draw determined in which semi-final each of the six pre-qualified countries (France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom and host country The Netherlands) will vote. The second draw decided in which half of the respective Semi-Finals each country will perform; the exact running order will be determined by the producers of the show at a later date.
From each Semi-Final, ten countries will go through to the Grand Final on 16 May, joining the six pre-qualified countries (Big 5 + host country Portugal). As a result, a total of 26 countries will compete in the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2020, which will take place on 12, 14 and 16 May in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
