Eurovision 2024: Pernilla Månsson Colt and Farah Abadi to lead the semi allocation draw!

The Eurovision year in SVT already starts in January with the “Eurovision Song Contest 2024 – the draw” directly from Malmö on January 30 as you read in one of our past articles. The broadcast, officially called the Semi-Final Draw, will decide which of the two semi-finals the participating countries will compete in in May.

SVT profiles Pernilla Månsson Colt and Farah Abadi host the lottery and the duo is charged for the assignment. Pernilla Månsson Colt, who had the same assignment in connection with Eurovision 2013, says:

“It will be great fun to kick off Sweden’s Eurovision year from Malmö. The draw is a more important thing than you think for the competition later. We hope that it will be both exciting and fun to watch the program.”

Farah Abadi adds:

“This is the kick-off for Eurovision and it is extra fun to be able to do the program together with Pernilla, but also that it is in our hometown Malmö that everything will happen.”

France, Italy, Spain, Great Britain, Germany and Sweden, as last year’s winners, are directly qualified for the final. But in the Semi-Final Draw it is also decided in which semi-final the viewers in these “the Big Five” countries and Sweden will be able to participate and vote. In the same semi-final, clips from the countries’ rehearsals on the Eurovision stage will also be shown.

The draw will be broadcast live on Tuesday 30 January 2024 at 19.00 CET on SVT Play and in SVT2.

The world’s largest live music competition will be broadcast from Malmö Arena in May. The semi-finals will be broadcast on the 7th and 9th and the grand final on the 11th of May after Loreen won for a second time in Liverpool with the song “Tattoo“.
