North Vision Song Contest
◄ 10 Eurovision Heart 12 ►

North Vision Song Contest 11, often referred to as NVSC 11 was the 11th edition of the North Vision Song Contest. It took place in Lviv, Ukraine following the country's victory in the tenth edition. It was the first time that Ukraine hosted the contest. Following a bidding phase, NTU chose the Lviv Arena in Lviv as the host venue with Zlata Ognevich serving as the presenter.

Fifty-two countries participated in the edition with Albania, FYR Macedonia and Iceland returning to the contest. Belgium and Slovenia announced their withdrawal from the edition. Although Spain had confirmed their return, it was later decided that they would not return in this edition due to a controversy concerning its Head of Delegation.

The winner of the edition was Denmark with the song "Drop Dead Cynical" performed by the winners of the fourth edition, Amaranthe, making Denmark the second country to win twice. It was also the first time that an artist wins twice. France finished as a runner-up for the fourth time with just 3 points less than the winner. Poland and Andorra finished fourth and fifth respectively. Although Ukraine and Croatia were tied for the fifth place, due to the tie-breaking rules, Ukraine finished fifth and Croatia finished sixth with the first achieving their sixth top 5 result in a row. Two of the big 5 members finished in the top 5 again (Ukraine and Andorra) while the rest of the big 5 finished in the bottom 6.

Location

Lviv is a city in western Ukraine that was once a major population centre of the Halych-Volyn Principality, the Crown of the Kingdom of Poland, the Habsburg Kingdom of Galicia and Lodomeria, and later the capital of Lwów Voivodeship during the Second Polish Republic.

Formerly capital of the historical region of Galicia, Lviv is now regarded as one of the main cultural centres of today's Ukraine. The historical heart of Lviv with its old buildings and cobblestone streets has survived Soviet and Nazi occupation during World War II largely unscathed. The city has many industries and institutions of higher education such as Lviv University and Lviv Polytechnic. Lviv is also a home to many world-class cultural institutions, including a philharmonic orchestra and the famous Lviv Theatre of Opera and Ballet. The historic city centre is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Lviv celebrated its 750th anniversary with a son et lumière in the city centre in September 2006.

Format

Semi-final allocation draw

The draw that determined the semi-final allocation was held on 25 October 2014 at the Nobilis hotel in Lviv. As the pre-qualification round would start after the draw, the spots for the pre-qualification round qualifiers were drawn first. The big 5 countries were first drawn to determine in which semi-final would each country vote. Andorra, Turkey and Ukraine were drawn to vote in the first semi-final while Moldova and Montenegro were drawn to vote in the second semi-final. The rest of the thirty-nine countries were divided into six pots, based on their geographical place. Each time a country was drawn from the pot, its semi-final and half of the semi-final was determined.

The six pots were the following:

Pot 1 Pot 2 Pot 3
Pot 4 Pot 5 Pot 6

Running order draw

The draw that determined the running order of the edition took place on 12 November 2014 in Lviv. Two countries from each semi-final and a big 5 country received a wildcard and could select their starting position at their half (first or second). Russia and Algeria got the wildcards from the first semi-final, Morocco and Poland got the wildcards from the second semi-final while Moldova got the wildcard of the big 5. During the running order draw, the semi-final of the pre-qualification round qualifiers were also determined. The running order draw for the semi-final qualifiers took place after the results of each semi-final with each of the qualifiers drawing their starting position.

Both Belgium, Slovenia and Spain were revealed to not be participating in the edition; Belgium cited financial issues as their withdrawing reason while Slovenia was forced to withdraw due to missing the confirmation deadline. Spain had originally confirmed their return to the contest.

Norway won the contest with Two Steps from Hell and Merethe Soltvedt and their song "Compass".

Other countries

Countries that are active members of the North Broadcasting Union (NBU), are also eligible to participate in the North Vision Song Contest. As in every edition, an invitation to all the members have been sent in order to confirm whether they will participate or not. Fifty-two countries confirmed their participation in the edition. The following list of countries declined stating their reasons as shown below.

Active NBU members

  • Flag of Belgium Belgium: The country's broadcaster originally confirmed for the contest but did not send a song within the deadline. Belgium got automatically disqualified from the PQR.
  • Flag of Spain Spain: Despite originally confirming the eleventh edition, the head of the NBU has stated that Spain will not be able to participate in the eleventh edition, due to an internal controversy concerning the HoD of Spain.
  • Flag of Slovenia Slovenia: The Slovenian HoD has not announced anything to the NBU within the deadline. Therefore the country is not allowed to participate in the eleventh edition and the broadcaster will have to pay a fine to the NBU.
