← 21 RoEurovision 23

The Ro-Eurovision Song Contest #22 was the 22nd edition of the contest. It took place in the Telenor Arena in Oslo, Norway, following Norway's victory at the 21st contest in Vilnius by ValyrianTyrell. This was the second time the contest had been hosted by Norway, the first being at the second contest in Oslo, when Norway won the first ever contest. The contest consisted of two semi-finals on the 23 and 24 April 2016 and the final on 30 April 2016.

The winner of the 22nd contest was Sweden, represented by Zendarium with the song "Love Me Again". This was Sweden's second win in the RoEurovision Song Contest. This was the last contest to feature a televote-only voting system.

Format Edit

Voting System Updates Edit

It was announced during production of the 22nd contest that ideas had been put in place to develop a new voting system in time for the 23rd contest; not long later it was confirmed that some form of a jury vote would be introduced in the following contest, meaning that the televote-only system would be used for the final time in Oslo. The televote-only voting system involved Each country in Europe awarding a set of 12, 10, 8–1 points to their 10 favourite songs in the contest.

Pot Allocation Draw Edit

In order to eliminate the chances of friendly voting and tactical voting, pot allocations were introduced for the first time in this contest. The pots were announced a couple of weeks prior to the semi-finals and consisted of 4-6 countries per pot. The pots were allocated depending on the player and not by neighbouring countries.
