Eurovision Song Contest 2017

The 62nd Eurovision Song Contest 2017 takes place in the International Exhibition Centre in Kiev, Ukraine, following Ukraine’s victory at the 2016 contest in Stockholm with the song “1944”, written and performed by Jamala. Two semi-finals took place on 9 and 11 May and the final takes place on 13 May 2017, hosted by Oleksandr Skichko, Volodymyr Ostapchuk and Timur Miroshnychenko. This year Forty-two countries are participating in the contest. Portugal and Romania return to the contest after a year’s absence, while Bosnia and Herzegovina have withdrawn. Russia announced their withdrawal on 13 April 2017, after their representative, Yulia Samoylova, was banned from entering Ukraine by virtue of travelling directly from Russia to Crimea, which is illegal under Ukrainian law. Out of the original 42 songs submitted for Eurovision 2017, 26 will make it to the Grand Final.
