Eurovision 2023 Semi-final running orderEurovision 2023 Semi-final running order
The British broadcaster, BBC, has determined and revealed the running orders for the two Semi-finals at the Eurovision Song Contest 2023. As in the nine previous years, the producer of the Contest has decided the running orders

At the allocation draw in January, all countries competing at Eurovision 2023 were drawn into a semi-final (except for the Big 5 and Ukraine). Now when all the songs have been revealed, producers of this year’s contest have decided on the running order for the shows on Tuesday 9 and Thursday 11 May.

As usual, for creating the semi-final running orders, producers take into account the style of each song and the staging requirements of each entry. Each semi-final will have two breaks for ads or non-commercial content, which can also affect the flow of the performances.

Second Semi-final running order

How the running order decided

In January, the allocation of the competing semi-finalists into either the first or second half of the first or second semi-final was determined by means of a random draw. This process provided broadcasters with advanced information to assist with travel planning and budgeting for the Eurovision 2023 event, which is to take place in Liverpool.

Following the semi-final allocations, the Eurovision 2023 host broadcaster, the BBC of the United Kingdom, subsequently determined the full semi-final running orders, which were then subject to approval by the Eurovision Executive Supervisor, Martin Österdahl.

With regards to the grand final running order, this will be finalized after the second semi-final, when all the finalists have been determined. Nonetheless, as the host countries of the event, Ukraine and the UK were randomly assigned their positions within the grand final – TVORCHI are scheduled to perform 19th, while Mae Muller will close the show in the 26th position.

Eurovision Song Contest 2023

The 67th Eurovision Song Contest takes place on 9, 11 and 13 May 2023. The contest will be held in Liverpool, United Kingdom, and produced by British broadcaster BBC.
