Posted

After tonight's 10 qualifiers were chosen, a press conference took place where they chose in which half of the Grand Final they were to perform. Now work will get underway by host broadcaster, DR and the EBU to set the running order for Saturday night's show. 

At this moment, we have no confirmation of when exactly this work will complete but rest assured, we will bring you the running order as soon as we have it! 

In order to ensure the running order is fair, and that the process in which it was set adheres to the rules, the EBU will need to approve it before it is released.
