North Vision Song Contest
◄ 18 Eurovision Heart 20 ►

North Vision Song Contest 19, often referred to as NVSC 19, was the nineteenth edition of the North Vision Song Contest. It was the first time that Italy hosts the contest after Elisa won the eighteenth edition with her song "No Hero". There was no pre-qualification round held this edition, making it the third edition not to have the event following the ninth and fifteenth editions. The contest was held in three difference locations for the first time; Genoa hosted the first semi-final, Milan hosted the second semi-final and Turin hosted the final. RAI selected Federico Russo, Sabrina Impacciatore and Dear Jack lead member Alessio Bernabei as the presenters of the edition.

Forty-eight countries participated in the edition. Bulgaria, France and the Netherlands returned to the competition after their one edition absence while Belarus, Croatia, FYR Macedonia, Ireland, Morocco and Portugal announced their withdrawal from the edition each for different reasons.

Albania was the winner of the edition with the song "A Do Si Kjo" performed by Ronela Hajati which got 355 points. Germany finished as the runner-up. Sweden finished on third place while Kazakhstan, Poland and Spain completed the top six of the edition. It was the second edition in a row that no countries of the big 6 finished in the top 6 with Iceland, who finished on the eleventh place, achieving the best place from the big 6.

Location

Italy is a unitary parliamentary republic in Europe. Italy covers an area of 301,338 km2 (116,347 sq mi) and has a largely temperate seasonal climate; due to its shape, it is often referred to in Italy as lo Stivale (the Boot). With 61 million inhabitants, it is the 4th most populous EU member state. Located in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, Italy shares open land borders with France, Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia, San Marino and Vatican City.

Despite winning the previous edition, the Italian broadcaster reported that it is unsure whether the country will be able to host the edition. The broadcaster said that due to budget cuts internally, as well as other expenses, the Italian hosting of the contest was in jeopardy. However, it was revealed later that Italy will host the contest. It was also revealed that the edition would be hosted in three different cities, one for each show.

Bidding phase

Locations of the candidate cities. The chosen cities are marked in red.

After it was speculated that Italy wouldn't be able to host, it was revealed that instead of one city, three cities would host the edition–one for each show of the edition. Cities in Italy could apply to become one of the three host cities of the edition since 28 April 2016.

On 4 May 2016, RAI announced the first five cities that had applied to host the edition. The first city that applied was Milan, the second most populous city in the country. The city applied with the Mediolanum Forum which can hold up to 12,700 people. The second venue that entered the bid was PalaLivorno, located in the city of Livorno, with a capacity of 8,000. Turin was the third city that joined the bidding phase. They applied to host with Pala Alpitour, the largest venue in the country with a capacity of 16,000. The capital city of the country, Rome, also joined the bidding phase with PalaLottomatica as their venue which can hold up to 12,200 people. Last city to join the bidding phase was Florence with the Nelson Mandela Forum which has a capacity of 7,500

The rest of the applicants were revealed on 9 May 2016. Turin added one more venue to their application; Torino Palavela with a seating capacity for 8,244 people. Genoa applied to host the event with Palasport di Genova, which can hold up to 10,000 people, as their venue of choice. The last venue to join the bidding phase was Unipol Arena, located in the city of Bologna, with a capacity of 11,000.

RAI announced the three host cities and venues during a press conference which was held on 18 May 2016. Palasport di Genova in Genoa was selected for the first semi-final, Mediolanum Forum in Milan for the second semi-final and Pala Alpitour in Turin for the final.

Format

Semi-final allocation draw

The draw that determined the semi-final allocation was held on 14 May 2016 at Hotel de Rome in Rome. The big 6 countries were first drawn to determine in which semi-final each would country vote. Estonia, Italy and Norway were drawn to vote in the first semi-final while Algeria, Andorra and Iceland were drawn to vote in the second semi-final. The rest of the forty-two 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

Unlike the previous editions, the running order of the edition was not decided by a random draw as it was decided by the NBU that the running order of the semi-finals and the final of the edition would be decided by producers appointed by both the NBU and the host broadcaster RAI. The NBU said that this was done in order to make the shows more exciting and to ensure that all contestants had a chance to stand out, preventing entries that are too similar cancelling each other out.

The running order of the semi-finals was revealed on 30 May 2016. The running order for the final was revealed right after the results of the second semi-final, on 18 June 2016.

New voting system

The NBU announced on 17 May 2016 that there would be a new voting system introduced during the edition, making it the first major voting system change since the first edition. The countries would now award two sets of 1-8, 10 and 12 points; one from their professional jury and the other from televoting. The jury votes will be presented by the spokesperson appointed by each broadcaster with the 1-7 points appearing on screen and 8, 10 and 12 being announced by the spokesperson. After all the jury votes are cast by the participating countries, the hosts will present the televoting results of the countries starting with the country that received the less points to the country that received the most points from televoting. The new voting system also applied to the semi-finals to determine the ten qualifiers but as before the qualifiers are announced in a random order.

The Rest of the World jury was also introduced in the edition. The jury will not be included in either the jury or the televoting and will be announced as a separate voter by the presenters at the start of the voting. Viewers from the countries that are not participating will be able to cast their votes and the top ten most voted countries will receive 1-8, 10 and 12 points.

Sneak peeks and betting odds

There were six sneak peeks in this edition with eight countries in each sneak peek. The countries were divided into the sneak peeks according to the order of the songs announcement with the songs that were announced first being in the first sneak peek. The broadcasters could post their result for each of the sneak peeks ranking the songs from first to last. The six sneak peeks were the following:

Sneak Peek 1 Sneak Peek 2 Sneak Peek 3
Sneak Peek 4 Sneak Peek 5 Sneak Peek 6

The betting odds of the edition were based on the rankings in the sneak peeks. The average rank of each country represented the country's odds to win the contest. After all the sneak peeks were posted, the United Kingdom was in the lead of the betting odds with 2.84 average rank while Germany and Kazakhstan completed the top three with 2.98 and 3.09 average ranks respectively. Lebanon was the least favorite to win with an average of 6.39, one of the lowest averages in the betting odds ever.

Forty-eight countries participated in the edition. Three countries returned to the contest: Bulgaria, France and the Netherlands returned to the contest after their one-edition absence.

Seven countries, however, announced their withdrawal from the contest. Belarus, Croatia and FYR Macedonia announced their withdrawal citing their Head of Delegation change as the reason, while Ireland and Portugal having finincial issues. Monaco and Morocco have withdrawn without stating a reason.

Spain originally announced their withdrawal mostly due to budget cuts and low interest in both the country's national selection and the contest. However, it was later announced that due to the high interest that was shown during the final of the eighteenth edition, the broadcaster decided to compete in the edition.
