The running order for the Grand Final was determined by a draw soon after the final wrapped up. Ireland, Lithuania and Luxembourg drew the tickets with the first half of the Final, while Cyprus, Finland and Slovenia got the most desired by Eurovision fans second half.

The exact running order positions will be decided by Swedish broadcaster SVT shortly after the second semi-final this Thursday, May 9. Croatia, Portugal and Ukraine drew the cards of “producer’s choice”, which means EBU and SVT will get to decide where it makes more sense to place this or that song for the most exciting sequence of the participating countries.
