The running order of both semi-finals has now been announced by the host broadcaster UA:PBC. The order that the songs will be performed is decided by the producers of the show, which has been done since the 2013 contest. The reason behind allowing the producers decide the running order is to ensure that the contest is full of excitement, and each song stands out against one another. The running order has been approved by the EBU Executive Supervisor Jon Ola Sand and the Chairman of the Reference Group, Dr. Frank Dieter Freiling.
Back in January, the Semi-Final Allocation draw took place, which determined which semi-final the countries would participate in, as well as determining which half of the semi-final. The German broadcaster requested that they broadcast and vote in the second semi-final, which was approved, as was the Swiss request to participate in the second semi-final.
