Before a while, through the Eurovision official website, the running order of the 2 semmi-finals was revealed.  The running order is determined by the organizers and the EBU, taking into account the place where each country was drawn to appear (first or second), but also in such a way that the show is more interesting.

The running order is as it is shown below:

The running order of each vountry is a very crusial point to the way to the Final as a poor place could, in theory, prevent an act from qualifing or,on the contrary, could give it the edge it needs to reach the final. Statistically, the entries in the second half of each semi-final  have a better chance to qualify.
