Stockholm is the venue for Eurovision 2016 and today the 43 countries began their journey (aka Marathon) for glory in May as the draw took place today for the Semi Final allocation.

This is a ROLLING BLOG beginning at 11:15CET and you can WATCH HERE. You know the drill, just refresh the page for the results of the draw as they happen. So you can sneak a look at our page while you pretend to be working behind your computer in the office or driving that bus (well strike that one!) – so as the countries learn their fate we will update what semi-final they are performing in plus what half of the draw they will perform in.

When all the songs are submitted to the EBU then SVT will create a running order for the show that will highlight the uniqueness of each entry. Still who wants to perform 2nd!!

SVT also announced their Slogan and Art Work for Eurovision 2016 today – SEE HERE
