Across the 2 semi-finals, a total of 37 countries have competed for the 20 spots, and we sure have witnessed something special. The Grand Final will take place in less than 48 hours, and with all the finalists being now chosen, we also now have the full running order for the final. This is the running order for the final: 🇺🇦Ukraine – Mélovin – Under The Ladder 🇪🇸Spain – Alfred y Amaia – Tu Cancion 🇸🇮Slovenia – Lea Sirk – Hvala, Ne! 🇱🇹Lithuania – Ieva Zasimauskaitė – When We’re Old 🇦🇹Austria – Cesar Sampson – Nobody But You 🇪🇪Estonia – Elina Nechayeva – La Forza 🇳🇴Norway – Alexander Rybak – That’s How You Write A Song 🇵🇹Portugal – Claudia Pascoal – O Jardim 🇬🇧United Kingdom – SuRie – Storm 🇷🇸Serbia – Sanja Ilic & Balkanika – Nova Deca 🇩🇪Germany – Michael Schulte – You Let Me Walk Alone 🇦🇱Albania – Eugent Bushpepa – Mall 🇫🇷France – Madame Monsieur – Mercy 🇨🇿Czech Republic – Mikolas Josef – Lie To Me 🇩🇰Denmark – Rasmussen – Higher Ground 🇦🇺Australia – Jessica Mauboy – We Got Love 🇫🇮Finland – Saara Aalto – Monsters 🇧🇬Bulgaria – EQUINOX – Bones 🇲🇩Moldova – DoReDos – My Lucky Day 🇸🇪Sweden – Benjamin Ingrosso – Dance You Off 🇭🇺Hungary – AWS – Viszlát Nyár 🇮🇱Israel – Netta – Toy 🇳🇱Netherlands – Waylon – Outlaw In ‘Em 🇮🇪Ireland – Ryan O’Shaughnessy – Together 🇨🇾Cyprus – Eleni Foureira – Fuego 🇮🇹Italy – Ermal Meta & Fabrizio Moro – Non Mi Avete Fatto Niente Before the runner order was revealed, we only knew which half all the songs would be performed in, as well as Portugal performing on the 8th slot. There will also be 2 break points in the performances, the first one being right after Portugal has performed, and the next one being right after Australia has performed. Some fast noticeable things about the running order, would be that Finland will perform on slot 17, which is considered the lucky number at the Eurovision final. Finland also won the contest back in 2006, on that exact spot. Italy was the only pre-qualified country to place in the second half, and will also close the show, which they also did in 2015 with Il Volo, back then Italy won the Televote. The big favorites, Cyprus and Israel, are both placed near the bottom of the running order, so can this help either of the 2 major favorites the title? Ukraine who also got the benefit of performing last in the second semi-final, will now start it all. The same fate that Laura Tesoro had with Belgium in 2016. Anyhow, do #YOU see anything else that might be interesting about the running order this year, and of course, who do #YOU think will win it all?
