The same applies for the final, with two rehearsals on the Friday and the third on Saturday afternoon before the live transmission of the grand final on Saturday evening.
This is usually held in a grand municipally owned location in the city centre. All delegations are invited, and the party is usually accompanied by live music, complimentary food and drink and—in recent years— fireworks.
After the semi-final and grand final there are after-show parties, held either in a facility in the venue complex or in another suitable location within the city.
A Euroclub is held every night of the week: During the week many delegations have traditionally hosted their own parties in addition to the officially sponsored ones.
However, in the new millennium the trend has been for the national delegations to centralise their activity and hold their celebrations in the Euroclub.
Numerous detailed rules must be observed by the participating nations, and a new version is produced each year, for instance the rules specify various deadlines, including the date by which all the participating broadcasters must submit the final recorded version of their song to the EBU.
The rules also cover sponsorship agreements and rights of broadcasters to re-transmit the show. The most notable rules which affect the format and presentation of the contest have changed over the years, and are highlighted here.
All vocals must be sung live; no voices are permitted on the backing tracks. The Croatian delegation stated that there were no human voices, but only digitally synthesised sounds which replicated vocals.
From until , the host country was required to provide a live orchestra. Before , all music had to be played by the host orchestra.
From onwards, pre-recorded, non-vocal backing tracks were permitted—although the host country was still obliged to provide a live orchestra to give participants a choice.
If a backing track was used, then all the instruments heard on the track were required to be present on the stage. In this requirement was dropped.
In the requirement for a live orchestra was removed: Each submission must have vocals; purely instrumental music has never been allowed.
In the past, competitors have been required to sing in one of their own national languages, but this rule has been changed several times over the years.
From until , there was no rule restricting the languages in which the songs could be sung. The language restriction continued until , when performers were again allowed to sing in any language they wished.
In , the EBU decided to revert to the national language restriction. In the rule was changed again to allow the choice of language once more, which resulted in 12 out of 23 countries, including the United Kingdom, singing in English that year.
In the Dutch entry, " Amambanda ", was sung partly in English and partly in an artificial language. Since the language rule was abolished in , songs in English have become increasingly more common.
In all but three out of 36 semi-finalists had songs in English, with only two Bosnia and Herzegovina and Macedonia performing songs in their native languages, as Austria sent a song in French.
In the final, all but three out of 26 contestants had songs in English. The voting system used in the contest has changed over the years. The current system has been in place since , and is a positional voting system.
Each country awards two sets of 12, 10, 8—1 points to their 10 favourite songs: The experiment was a success,  and from onwards all countries were encouraged to use televoting wherever possible.
Back-up juries are still used by each country, in the event of a televoting failure. Nowadays members of the public may also vote by SMS, in addition to televoting.
In every case, every country cannot vote for its own song  From , the public may also vote via a mobile app. The current method for ranking entries, introduced in , is to sum together the points calculated from the telephone vote and the jury separately.
Since the voting has been presided over by the EBU scrutineer , who is responsible for ensuring that all points are allocated correctly and in turn.
According to one study of Eurovision voting patterns , certain countries tend to form "clusters" or "cliques" by frequently voting in the same way.
After the interval act is over, when all the points have been calculated, the presenter s of the show call upon each voting country in turn to invite them to announce the results of their vote.
Prior to the announcements were made over telephone lines ; with the audio being piped into the auditorium for the audience to hear, and over the television transmission.
However, since and including the announcements have been presented visually. Often the opportunity is taken by each country to show their spokesperson standing in front of a backdrop which includes a famous place in that country.
For example, the French spokesperson might be seen standing in front of the Eiffel Tower or an Italian presenter might be seen with the Colosseum in the background.
From to , the participating countries were called in reverse order of the presentation of their songs, and from to , they were called in the same order in which their songs had been presented except for In , the countries were called in alphabetical order according to their ISO codes.
Between and , like in , a separate draw was held to determine the order in which countries would present their votes. From to , each country sent two jurors, who were present at the contest venue though the juries in were locked away in the Great Hall of Edinburgh Castle and announced their votes as the camera was trained on them.
In one of the Swiss jurors made a great show of presenting his votes with flamboyant gestures. This system was retired the next year. In no public votes were presented: In  the EBU decided to save time during the broadcast—much of which had been taken up with the announcement of every single point—because there was an ever-increasing number of countries voting.
Since then, votes from 1 to 7 from each country have been displayed automatically on screen and the remaining points 8, 10 and 12 are read out in ascending order by the spokesperson, culminating with the maximum 12 points.
For this reason, the expression douze points when the host or spokesperson states the top score in French is popularly associated with the contest throughout the continent.
In addition, only the jury points are announced by country. The televoting results are announced in aggregate, from lowest-scoring country to highest.
After the winner has been announced, the televoting points from the country where the contest is watched from are briefly seen on screen.
In , four of the sixteen countries taking part, France, Spain, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, all tied for first place with 18 points each.
There was nothing in the rules to decide an outright winner, so all four were declared joint winners. This caused much discontent among most of the other participating countries, and mass walkouts were threatened.
Finland, Norway, Sweden and Portugal did not participate in the Contest as a protest against the results of the previous year. This prompted the EBU to introduce a tie-break rule.
Under the current rules, in the event of more than one country scoring the same total number of points, a count is made of the numbers of countries who awarded points to each of the tied countries, and the one who received points from the most countries is declared the winner.
If the numbers are still tied, it is counted how many sets of maximum points 12 points each country received. If there is still a tie, the numbers of point scores awarded are compared—and then the numbers of 8-point scores, all the way down the list.
In the extremely unlikely event of there then still being a tie for first place, the song performed earliest in the running order is declared the winner.
Since , the same tie-break rule now applies to ties for all places. As of , the only time since when two or more countries have tied for first place on total points alone was in , when France and Sweden both totalled points.
Both France and Sweden had received four sets of 12 points. However, because Sweden had received more sets of point scores, they were declared the winners.
Had the current rule been in play, France would have won instead. Each participating broadcaster is required to broadcast the show in its entirety: The Dutch state broadcaster pulled their broadcast of the final to provide emergency news coverage of a major incident, the Enschede fireworks disaster.
The Albanian performer had visible tattoos, and the Irish song featured a storyline showing vignettes of a homosexual couple. The first edition ever of the Eurovision Song Contest in was broadcast live, but not recorded, so only a sound recording of the radio transmission has survived from the original broadcast.
In late , the EBU had begun archiving all the contests since the first edition in to be finalised before the Contest, for the 60th anniversary.
In , hosted in Paris only a month after the South Lebanon conflict , during the performance of the Israeli entry, the Jordanian broadcaster JRTV suspended the broadcast and showed pictures of flowers.
In , Lebanon intended to participate in the contest. The EBU informed them that such an act would breach the rules of the contest, and Lebanon was subsequently forced to withdraw from the competition.
Their late withdrawal incurred a fine, since they had already confirmed their participation and the deadline had passed. As of [update] , the albums were banned completely from sale.
However, the song text was banned by Eurovision as it was interpreted as criticism against Prime Minister of Russia Vladimir Putin after the Russo-Georgian War the previous year.
When asked to change the lyrics of the song, the Georgian broadcaster GPB withdrew from the contest. The number of countries participating has steadily grown over time, from seven in to over 20 in the late s.
In , twenty-five countries participated in the competition, including, for the first time, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia and Slovenia, entering independently due to the dissolution of Yugoslavia.
Because the contest is a live television programme, a reasonable time limit must be imposed on the duration of the show.
In recent years the nominal limit has been three hours, with the broadcast occasionally over-running. Several relegation or qualification systems have been tried to limit the number of countries participating in the contest at one time.
Thus the Contest introduced two new features: Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Estonia, Hungary, Romania, Slovenia and Slovakia took part in Kvalifikacija za Millstreet ; and the three former Yugoslav republics, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia and Slovenia, qualified for a place in the international final.
Relegation continued in and ;  but in a different pre-selection system was used, in which nearly all the countries participated.
Audio tapes of all the songs were sent to juries in each of the countries some weeks before the television show.
These juries selected the songs which would be included in the international broadcast. One country which failed to qualify in the pre-selection was Germany.
As one of the largest financial contributors to the EBU, their non-participation in the contest brought about a funding issue, which the EBU would have to consider.
Since , France , Germany , Spain and United Kingdom have automatically qualified for the final, regardless of their positions on the scoreboard in previous contests, as they are the four biggest financial contributors to the EBU.
On 31 December , it was announced that Italy would compete in the Eurovision Song Contest after a fourteen-year absence and that it would also automatically qualify for the final, joining the other four qualifiers to become the "Big Five", considered by some to be a controversial decision.
Turkey withdrew from the Contest with the status of the "Big Five" being one of the reasons cited. The only country in the Big 5 since that has never finished last in the finals is Italy.
Some measures have been taken by the EU to give the Big 5 contestants a similar status to those competing at the semi-finals, such as broadcasting their acts in the semi-final interval.
From to , countries qualified for each contest based on the average of their points totals for their entries over the previous five years.
This led the EBU to create what was hoped would be a more permanent solution to the problem. A qualification round, known as the semi-final, was introduced for the Contest.
The highest-placed songs from the semi-final qualified for the grand final, while the lower-placed songs were eliminated. From to , the semi-final programme was held on the Thursday of Eurovision Week.
At the 50th annual meeting of the EBU reference group in September , it was decided that, with still more nations entering, starting from the contest onwards two semi-finals would be held,  from each of which one could qualify for the final.
The only countries which automatically qualify for the grand final are the host country and the Big Five: In each of the semi-finals the voting is conducted among those countries which participate in that semi-final.
With regard to the automatic grand final qualifiers, who do not participate in the semi-finals, a draw is conducted to determine in which semi-final each of them will be allowed to vote.
In contrast, every participating country in a particular year may vote in the Saturday grand final — whether their song qualified for the final or not.
The ten countries which receive the most votes in each semi-final qualify for the grand final. They are announced by the presenters in English and French, in a random order.
As of [update] , Ireland holds the record for the highest number of wins, having won the contest seven times.
Sweden is second with six wins. France , Luxembourg and the United Kingdom are joint third with five wins each. The Netherlands and Israel both hold four victories.
Denmark and Norway have both won thrice, six countries have won twice, 12 countries have won once, and 24 countries have participated but never won.
The United Kingdom holds the record for the highest number of runner-up placings, coming in second on no less than 15 occasions as of [update].
Germany, Russia, France, Spain and Ireland have four runner-up entries. Norway holds the record for finishing in last place in the final the most times: The early years of the contest saw many wins for "traditional" Eurovision countries: France, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg.
However, the success of these countries has declined in recent decades; the Netherlands last won in ; France, in ; and Luxembourg, in Luxembourg last entered the contest in The first years of the 21st century produced numerous first-time winners, from both "new" and long-serving countries who had previously entered numerous times but without victories.
Every year from to inclusive, a country won for its first time. Estonia was the first post-Soviet country to win the competition in In , Turkey won for the first time.
Every year around 2. The beaches of Tel Aviv are often ranked as some of the best beaches in the world. Tel Aviv is called "The city that never sleeps", because of its active nightlife, with a huge variety of nightclubs and bars, many of them LGBT friendly.
Besides Tel Aviv, three other cities were in the bidding race for hosting Eurovision Jerusalem, Haifa and Eilat. The Pavilion 2 was opened in and has a capacity of up to 10, people at most depending on configuration.
IPBC expects to have a capacity of around 9, spectators in the arena for Eurovision The Green Room will be placed in Pavilion 1 in the complex.
The Pavilion will also host the Press Center, while the Pavilion 13 will be used for the production. The stage will be designed by Florian Wieder — who also designed the stage for Eurovision , , , and The stage is shaped like a diamond with a standing area for fans right in front of the stage.
The only difference is Bulgaria , who applied to participate but later withdrew. EBU Member Broadcasters, on behalf of their countries, had until October to formally submit their applications to take part in Eurovision The draw determined which countries are allocated to which of the two semi-finals.
