So we have had a lot of Eurovision 2015 confirmations, intentions and apologies so we thought it wise to have a quick run through the list to see where we stand. As we say ALL the time that until the official deadlines are passed and all documentation received by the EBU, you cannot definitely declare that a country will be at Vienna in 2015. Got that – Good!

We have hyperlinked articles that provide further details on the particular country and their plans/intentions and observations for Eurovision 2015.

That is 42 countries that we have a status update on regarding Eurovision 2015. Luxembourg, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Andorra have no plans on returning to the contest in 2015.

So there you have it. There is speculation that Croatia may be about to return to Junior Eurovision and if that was the case then it would be a good indication of returning to Eurovision in 2015.

Albania, despite other websites advising that they have confirmed that they will be at Eurovision 2015 and will use the Festivali i Kenges to select their entry, RTSH has NOT published any such details.

If we have missed anything then let us know.
