Each year the running order is determined by the drawing of lots in alphabetical order, which means that the same countries are always left until the end.
In order to avoid this to happen one more time, PBS and the EBU yesterday evening organised a “pre-draw” to determine the order in which the participants will pick their running order halves at the opening ceremony. It was recorded at PBS’ studios with host Moira Delia, and the countries were picked at random by Gaia Cauchi. The draw was supervised by Executive Supervisor Vladislav Yakovlev.
