The Big 5 has also drawn which semi final they will be voting in!
Of course, the so called Big 5: Italy, Spain, United Kingdom, Germany and France will also be involved in the semi finals. Today also revealed which semi final each member of the Big 5 will be voting in. Traditionally it would be the Big 5 plus the host country that will draw which semi final they will be voting in. However, since one of the Big 5, namely Italy, is the host country, it will only be those 5 countries that will be taking part in the draw.
With all the semi finals all sorted, all we have to wait for now is which order the songs will be performing in. This usually takes place a short time after all the songs are released and after the heads of delegations meeting. Stay tuned so you can keep up with up to date news on Eurovision!
