The running order for the Eurovision 2013 Semi Finals will take place over the coming days. Lots of articles have been written on how this will affect or not affect the outcome of the results. However Sweden have had their place in the final decided in the good old-fashioned way of a blind draw. This draw took place recently and the lucky number for Robin Stjernberg will be 16

Now had it been 17 well we could have been onto a superstitious vibe. Loreen won Eurovision last year from position 17. However this is a favorite running order for many a Eurovision Winner – Johnny Logan “Hold Me Now” (1980), Linda Martin “Why Me” 1992 and Eimear Quinn “The Voice” 1996.
Will the changes to the how the running order is decided make a difference to a country’s chance of qualifying for the Grand Final?
For now we know that Sweden will perform in 16th position.
