The running order of the Semi-Finals of the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest has been unveiled by Host Broadcaster SVT. Nicky will be the 7th Person to Perform on May 12th!
Following the same format that has been in place since 2013, producers decided the running order to ensure that each song stands out and to create a more exciting television show. The decision was approved by the EBU Executive Supervisor Jon Ola Sand and the Chairman of the Reference Group, Dr. Frank Dieter Freiling.
“My goal is to give every song maximum space so it’s surrounded by other songs that make it stand out and shine for three minutes. This also reduces the anxiety surrounding where a country is placed in the running order. Wherever the artist is singing they have a chance to be noticed”, said Christer Björkman, Contest Producer for the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest.
Here’s the running order for Semi-Finals 2:
8. FYR Macedonia
The running order for the Grand Final will be decided after the second Semi-Final. The first Semi-Final has 18 participants and will be held on 10th May while the second with 19 contestants takes place on 12th May. The Grand Final of the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest will take place on Saturday 14th May.

Last month, Nicky attended the 2016 Brit Awards and did a few red carpet interviews. Aimee Dews from BFBS Radio had the opportunity to chat to Nicky about the old ‘Westside’ days, his upcoming album, Eurovision and a couple of other things. Watch – The clip is quite funny! 😉

Last month, The Nicky Byrne Show won ‘Best Radio Show’ at The Gossies. Well, yesterday one of Goss.ie‘s editors, Alexandra Ryan, finally gave Nicky and Jenny their well deserved award, since they were both away when the ceremony took place a couple of weeks ago. Congrats again!
It’s that time of the year to vote for The Peter Mark VIP Style Awards, which celebrates Ireland’s most stylish women and men. It’s also no surprise that Nicky is nominated for ‘Most Stylish Man’ again! Congrats and well deserved. 🙂

Today was a special broadcast of The Nicky Byrne Show, since it took place in Croke Park because of the Irish Flag Ceremony. Always lovely to see Nicky back there… So many great memories! Here are a couple of pictures of him with Lottie Ryan and guest, Bláthnaid Treacy, who taught listeners a few Irish words.
