In January, participating countries were randomly drawn into either the first or second half of either the First or Second Semi-Final; the running orders are based on that allocation draw and have been sequenced by producers to create the most exciting shows possible.

The โ€˜Big Fiveโ€™ (France, Germany, Spain, Italy and Host Country the United Kingdom), along with current champions Ukraine, will not perform in either of the Semi-Finals, but their domestic audiences will get to vote in one of them.

The running order of the Grand Final will be determined by producers in the early hours of Friday 12 May, after the Second Semi-Final and all qualifiers are confirmed. The United Kingdom (as Hosts) and Ukraine (as Champions) had their positions randomly drawn at the Heads of Delegation meeting. Ukraine will perform from 19th position, while the United Kingdom will close the show in 26th.

You can listen to all 37 songs of Eurovision 2024 via your favourite streaming service or watch the music videos on our YouTube channel.

The Eurovision Song Contest will take place in Malmรถ, Sweden on Tuesday 7 May (First Semi-Final), Thursday 9 May (Second Semi-Final) and Saturday 11 May (Grand Final) 2024.
