Eurovision 2016 – Today during the red carpet opening of the contest a draw was held to determine which half of the contest the Big Five will perform in. Usually the draw happens in a press conference so this was a change of pace and a surprise
We already know that the host country Sweden will be performing 9th in the Grand Final of the contest on May 14th but the Big Five are still to be told the position they will perform in.
Today however, at the Opening Ceremony, the half the Big Five will perform in were chosen. Each act pulled a piece of paper out of the infamous glass bowl. The results of the draw were as follows
Germany – 1st Half
Italy – 1st Half
France – 1st Half
United Kingdom – 2nd Half
Spain – 2nd Half
