Eurovision - The Draw

Today at 16:15 CET (15:15 GMT) sees the draws take place for the running orders of the Eurovision semi-finals and final. We already know which countries are in which semi-final, from the draw which took place on 28 February. Today's draw will put the nineteen songs in each semi-final in running order.

So far, without the songs being in any order, I can already see nine 'certainties' to qualify from semi-final one, which only leaves one place in the final up for grabs! In semi-final two, I can only pencil in six for the final, so it will be interesting to see what the draw does to each country's perceived chances.

ESC Today says the draw for the final will also take place, so the UK, France, Germany, Spain and Serbia will find out which of the 25 slots they will occupy in the final. I guess they will also allocate each slot to 'qualifier from semi-final 1' or 'qualifier from semi-final 2' and then allocate the slot numbers at the end of each semi-final in May. We shall see.

The draw is being shown live on (but some of us will be at work).
