Eurovision: Running order for final revealed

Eurovision: Running order for final revealed
Eurovision producers reveal the running order for the 26 countries competing in the final of this year's contest in Rotterdam.

Eurovision producers have revealed the running order for tomorrow night's grand final in Rotterdam.

The final 10 countries qualified in last night's second semi-final, after which the draw was made to determine which half of the show each country will perform in.

Producers then determined the precise running order - a factor which can seriously affect a performer's chances of winning, with slots closer to the end generally considered the most desirable.

Elena Tsagrinou of Cyprus will have the task of opening the show with her song 'El Diablo', while at the other end, Senhit and special guest Flo Rida - representing San Marino - will be the last to perform with their track 'Adrenalina'.

Three of the favourites will perform early in the show: Destiny of Malta is sixth, Gjon's Tears is 11th for Switzerland and the Icelandic entry from Dadi Freyr and Gagnamagnid is 12th.

In a boost for favourites Italy - represented this year by rockers Maneskin - they have been selected to perform in 24th spot, while Barbara Pravi of France has a decent shot in 20th.

Flying the flag for the United Kingdom is James Newman, who has been chosen to perform 'Embers' in ninth place.

1. Cyprus: Elena Tsagrinou, 'El Diablo'

2. Albania: Anxhela Peristeri, 'Karma'
