It was also the first song with lyrics in Crimean Tatar to win or enter the contest. The win was also controversial as, under the old voting system, Australia would have won the competition on only their second attendance.
Forty-two countries participated in the contest. Bosnia and Herzegovina , Bulgaria , Croatia and Ukraine returned after absences from recent contests, while Australia also returned after debuting as a special guest in The contest was also the first to implement a voting system change since Twenty-six countries competed in the final, which was the first to be broadcast on live television in the United States.
The Czech Republic managed to qualify for the final for the first time in five attempts since its debut in , while both Bosnia and Herzegovina and Greece failed to qualify from the semi-finals for the first time ever, the latter being absent from the final for the first time since In the final, Australia finished second, improving on its debut in , while Bulgaria finished fourth, its best result at the time since its debut and first participation in a final since Justin Timberlake performed during the interval act of the final.
A record-breaking million viewers worldwide watched the contest, beating the viewing figures by over 5 million. The Ericsson Globe has a capacity of approximately 16, attendees, and this was the second time the contest has been staged at the venue, after the Eurovision Song Contest However, other cities and arenas were invited to apply, and those making a bid had approximately three weeks to submit their offer to SVT.
SVT announced on 1 June the conditions under which cities and venues could announce their interest in hosting the contest: An announcement regarding the venue was expected from SVT by midsummer,   with the Ericsson Globe announced as the venue on 8 July.
The preliminary dates for the contest were announced on 16 March at a meeting of Heads of Delegation in Vienna, with the semi-finals took place on 10 and 12 May and the final on 14 May SVT proposed a change of start time of the contest from The EBU announced on 23 September that rather than using clips from their respective music videos, extended clips from the dress rehearsals of the six acts who qualified directly to the final the " Big Five " and Sweden would be shown as previews during the semi-final in which they were allocated to vote.
The EBU announced on 18 February that a new voting system would be implemented at the contest for the first time since The new system, inspired by the voting system of Melodifestivalen, involves each country now awarding two sets of points from , 10 and Televoting votes from all the countries are pooled.
After viewers have cast their votes, the results of each professional jury are presented, with countries receiving and 10 points being displayed on-screen instead of , which had been the case since , and the national spokesperson announcing only the country to which they award 12 points.
After the results of the professional juries are presented, the televoting points from all participating countries are combined, providing one score for each song.
The new voting system is also used to determine the qualifiers from each semi-final, but as before the qualifiers are announced in a random order.
As the new voting system gives equal weight to jury and televoting results, a national jury result cannot be used as backup result for the televoting or vice versa.
The Director General of Radiotelevisione della Repubblica di San Marino SMRTV , Carlo Romeo, stated on 23 February that the use of a substitute televoting result discriminated against microstates like San Marino, which only used a professional jury due to their use of the Italian phone system and would therefore have its voting representation diminished under the new system, and criticised the EBU for not contacting its members before making the decision.
The results of the Swedish jury vote was also announced live from the event by Gina Dirawi. The press conferences were presented by Jovan Radomir and Catarina Rolfsdotter-Jansson, who also provided commentary from the red carpet event in front of the Stockholm Palace , before the official welcome party at Stockholm City Hall on 8 May The draw to determine the allocation of the participating countries into their respective semi-finals took place at Stockholm City Hall on 25 January , hosted by Alexandra Pascalidou and Jovan Radomir.
The second part of the draw decided in which half of the respective semi-finals each country would perform, with the exact running order determined by the producers of the show at a later date.
The EBU originally announced that the running order would be revealed on 5 April,  however for undisclosed reasons this was later put back to 8 April.
From each semi-final, ten countries joined the "Big 5" and Sweden in the final, where a total of twenty-six countries participated.
Drawing from different pots helps in reducing the chance of so-called neighbour voting and increasing suspense in the semi-finals.
Sweden and Germany were pre-allocated to vote and perform in the first and second semi-final respectively due to requests from their respective broadcaster, which were approved by the EBU.
The interval acts of both semi-finals were sketches choreographed by Fredrik Rydman: Participating countries had until 15 September to submit their applications for participation in the contest, and until 10 October to withdraw their applications without facing financial sanctions.
Four countries returned after absences from recent contests: Bosnia and Herzegovina after , Bulgaria and Croatia after and Ukraine after Australia also returned after debuting as a special guest in , but by invitation of the EBU due to the associate membership status of the Special Broadcasting Service.
However, instead of pre-qualifying for the final and voting in all three live shows, as was the case in , Australia entered the second semi-final and voted only in that semi-final and the final.
