Links to other Pages. More Links at bottom of page.

The venue for 2007 is the The Hartwall Areena in Helsinki, in Finland.

The semi final will be held on Thursday 10 May 2007. The final will be held on Saturday 12 May 2007. The contest will be available in High Definition (now the technology is in place since the World Cup was broadcast in HD). The BBC will show the Saturday final in HD.

The presenters will be Jaana Pelkonen and Mikko Leppilampi

The draw order was held on 12 March. The running order will be decided differently from previous years. Where before, the first country draw will sing first and the next, the first 5 countries picked in the semi final and the first 3 countries picked in the final can select their singing position! This means that those countries can pick any position to sing like last place or half way through the contest or next to a country they love or hate! But it seems that they picked to sing towards the end of the semi final and final.

42 Countries has indicated their interest. Here are the list of countries and songs known so far. Points 1 to 7 will be shown automatically on screen and then the spokesperson will announce points 8, 10 and 12. (May be!)

10 Countries qualified from the Semi Finals : Belarus, FYR Macedonia, Slovenia, Hungary, Georgia, Latvia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Moldova. Not one country from Eastern Europe went through from the semi to the final.
