Ten of the 15 acts in the first semi-final qualify for the final on May 13. In addition to the participating semi-final countries, Germany, France and Italy will also vote in the first semi as the so-called Big Five countries.

Which country starts in which semi-final was drawn on January 31 in the so-called Allocation Draw in Liverpool. The starting order will be determined by the show’s producers based on dramaturgical aspects and was announced on March 22nd.

Interval acts in the first semi

The British singer with Kosovar-Albanian roots performs a medley of her greatest hits as well as her current song “Praising You” during the voting phase. The former Ukrainian ESC participants also appear Alyosha up. She tells her personal story with a re-imagining of the Duran Duran hit “Ordinary World”. Her performance will be accompanied by Liverpool singer Rebecca Ferguson.
