22 RoEurovision 24

The Ro-Eurovision Song Contest #23 was the 23rd edition of the contest. It took place in the Tingvallahallarna Arena in Karlstad, Sweden, following Sweden's victory at the 22nd contest in Oslo by Zendarium. This was the third time the contest had been hosted by Sweden, after the 1st and 17th contests both being hosted in Stockholm. The contest consisted of two semi-finals on the 21 and 22 May 2016 and the final on 28 May 2016.

The winner of the 23rd contest was Italy, represented by TheMajesticWolves with the song "If Love Was A Crime". This was Italy's first win in the RoEurovision Song Contest. This was the first contest to introduce a split televote/jury vote. Additionally, It was announced that the biggest 5 funders of the contest (France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom) would automatically be able to take part in every RoEsc contest as a semi-finalist or finalist if they finish in the top 5 in the previous contest.

Format Edit

New Voting System Edit

It was announced prior to the contest that a new voting system would be introduced to the group for the first time since the 1st contest. The new system would involve each finalist awarding 12, 10 and 8-1 points to their favorite songs, with the non-finalists & non-participants voting the same way, but their votes would all be combined and shown at once (like a jury).

Pot Allocation Draw Edit

Pot Allocation and Semi-Final draws were held two weeks before the semi-finals to determine the running order of the semi-finalists. The system, having been introduced in the 22nd contest, was carried on to the 23rd contest to reduce friendly voting and tactical voting.

Production Edit

Venue Edit

The contest took place in the Tingvallahallarna Arena in Karlstad, folllowing Sweden's victory at the 22nd contest. The popular indoor venue has a capacity of around 12,000 attendees.

Slogan & Design Edit

The slogan of the contest, "Essence", was announced prior to the semi-finals, with a logo alongside it.

Presenters Edit

It was announced on the 30 April 2016 that Petra Mede would host the semi-finals and final alone.

Scoreboard Design Edit

It was announced shortly prior to the semi-finals that for the second time in RoEurovision history the scoreboard design would be produced by the HR team themselves. The design closely followed the logo's theme.
