  1. Turkey returning would be great. Especially since it’s an even year so it means they should be good :p

  2. This is good! Hopefully more will return (Slovakia, Morocco, etc.). Sad that Luxembourg, Monaco and Andorra will not be joining us next year. :-(

  3. This is just a preliminary confirmation.We won’t really know which countries will be participating before Christmas.

  4. The dates for MF 2016 have also been released:
    06/02 – Semifinal 1 -Göteborg – Scandinavium
    13/02 – Semifinal 2 – Malmö, Malmö Arena
    20/02- Semifinal 3 -Norrköping- Himmelstalundshallen
    27/02- Semifinal 4 -Gävle-Gavlerinken Arena
    05/03- Andra Chansen-Halmstad- Halmstad Arena
    12/03- Grand final -Stockholm- Friends Arena

  5. I hope Bosnia will keep their high musical level. “Lejla” is one of my all time favourites :-)

  6. Romania look like they’re in too :)

  7. I won’t believe in BiH until I see their act coming onto the Stockholm stage …

  8. Welcome back, Ukraine and B&H. Ukraine in particular has turned in some top tunes in its time – Wild Dances, Dancing Lasha Tumbai, Be My Guest and Tick-Tock are among my favourites.

  9. Ukraine has been confirmed for months, good news about Bosnia though for the fans of Bosnia (I’m not one but glad those who are have their fave back)

    Turkey is also confirmed. Not sure why ET is behind Wikipedia.

  10. Yay :)))) Good news! The only god one for today :((

  11. Exciting! Hopefully the Bosnian and Ukrainian confirmations stick, and the Turkish rumors prove to be true.

  12. If these rumours are true, I hope Bosnia sticks to its 2012 quality and not go back to its old ways..As for Ukraine I don’t have high hopes when it comes to their entries but who knows, an Alyosha may pop up !

  13. Bosnia please reconsider and join the party !
    All their 99,06,07,09,11 and 12 have been great!
    I appreciate 93-95 and 08 too!
