    Yaas! The allocation draw will happen soon now

    When are we supposed to know the host's starting position in the final? Is it before the Eurovision week or the day after the first semi? I don't remember.

    Usually the host country's position is drawn during the HoD meetings in March

    The allocation draw and insignia exchange will be hosted by Filomena Cautela and Sílvia Alberto (2/4 hosts of the main shows) and will be broadcasted live on Eurovision's Youtube channel and on RTP. It will be held on Lisbon's Town Hall's "Salão Nobre".

    Why even have a draw when EBU chooses the running order anyways? I know it determines the voting and yadda yadda but still This is all just for show

    The Ideal Draw imo would be:

    00: LV | 01: GR | 02: LV | 03: TR | 04: UA | 05: CS | 06: FI | 07: BY | 08: IL |
    09: NO | 10: DE | 11: GR | 12: AZ | 13: AZ | 14: ES | 15: SE | 16: UA | 17: BG

    I ain't here for farcical presenters either, yet I think they should look relatively likeable and natural: Eurovision remains a party after all. Anke Angelke managed to do that perfectly back in 2011 imo, so it's not infeasible.

    As for Hasnaoui, she precisely came across as a bit repressed to me. She was very professional for sure, but she couldn't let go despite her attempts to do so.
    I agree, I don't think ESC should turn into a circus where the hosts/hostesses are mocking it or something, but there should still be some humor there (coming from the right place), otherwise it's simply too stiff and boring wheres we should be entertained as viewers. I think you can be fun and professional at the same time, unfortunate it's easier said than done.

    I think with Mede you simply need to "get" the humor she's aiming for, she's also quite polarizing in Sweden. I think alot of people that didn't follow her career doesn't get that she's taking on this "stage persona" that is supposed to be a tongue-in-cheek take on "big Divas", she comes from a background of stand-up-comedy so it is a bit sarcastic and purposely over-the-top, but yeah I can get that it can turn some people off, I however find her the best hostess we have in Sweden though and surely one of the best ESC hosts ever... oh well

    Anyways this is about 2018 and she has nothing to do with that

    I will have to wait and see what the Portuguese hostesses will look like on stage, so far they give a bit of "girly-ish" and "wannabe American" impression, but we'll see... like I wrote earlier, most hosts/hostesses for the past decade were either forcing themselves to be funny (without any authenticity or professionalism to pull it off) or they were just full-blooded amateurs... surely it can't get much worse so I'm hopeful based on what I've seen so far that this time around it will be atleast decent.

    This is a bit stupid. This draw has nothing to do with the running order, I don't even see what kind of connection you're making there.

    I know

    It was more from a philosophical point of view... kind of "what does it all matter in the end when so much seem to be a set up regardless"- type of question (chosen running order, jurors etc.), I know the draw determine something else... I'm not stupid (regardless of the comment)

    So, what would an optimal draw for be then? I went to eschome.net (great site btw) and clicked on "Total number of all points given.." a bit further down.

    Pot 1:
    51.85
    48.81
    36.11

    30.83 (if we get semi 1)
    27.08
    20.00
    15.28

    Pot 2:
    88.10
    84.38

    77.50
    59.52
    44.05

    Pot 3:
    47.22
    43.06
    37.50

    30.00
    28.70
    15.83

    Pot 4:
    60.42
    51.19
    48.96

    46.30
    14.58
    10.42

    Pot 5:
    57.29
    54.17
    53.57

    45.83
    42.86
    39.58

    Pot 6:
    65.48
    57.41
    57.14

    56.67
    51.19
    50.00

    Big 5 + Host:
    61.46
    52.38
    46.30

    41.67
    39.29
