Semi-final allocation draw

The draw that determined the semi-final allocation was held on 23 October 2016 at The Grand Mark in Prague. The big 6 countries were first drawn to determine in which semi-final each would country vote. The rest of the fourty-one 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

Other countries

Further information: List of countries in the North Vision Song Contest

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. The following list of countries declined stating their reasons as shown below.

Active NBU members

  • Flag of Azerbaijan Azerbaijan: On 26 September 2016, AzTV announced that their participation is currently uncertain due to a potential third participation in the Pre-Qualification Round and their current financial situation, as well as internal issues between the broadcaster and the NBU. Following the revelation of Armenia's song, AzTV withdrew from the contest in protest at the allowance of a political entry in the competition.
  • Flag of Egypt Egypt: After no longer being entitled to take part in the twentieth edition due to sanctions given by the NBU, Egypt will not be able to participate in this edition either.
  • Flag of Finland Finland: YLE decided to withdraw from the twenty-first edition to focus on other projects within the broadcaster.
  • Flag of Iceland Iceland: On 27 August 2016, it was announced by RÚV that Iceland would not take part in the twenthy-first edition of the contest due to financial issues and a lack of interest the broadcaster is facing. However, a return in the twenty-second edition is expected.
  • Flag of Ireland Ireland: It was announced on 18 September 2016 that Ireland would be withdrawing from the contest due to lack of time and interest.
  • Flag of Kazakhstan Kazakhstan: On 26 September 2016, NTK announced it would be withdrawing from the contest, stating that the cost of participation is too high, and also due to the disappointing result in Tirana last edition.
  • Flag of Monaco Monaco: On 16 October 2016, it was announced, that Monaco would be taking a break for another edition. A return in a future edition is still not ruled out.
  • Flag of Montenegro Montenegro: Despite initially confirming their participation, RTCG announced on 15 October 2016 that the country would be withdrawing from the edition. The broadcaster cited financial difficulties as the reason of their withdrawal. A return in the following editions is not certain.
  • Flag of Romania Romania: Romania failed to submit and present their entry within the given deadline and therefore was forced to withdraw from the edition.
  • Flag of Slovenia Slovenia: On 27 August 2016, RTV SLO announced that they will be withdrawing from the contest, due to the small budget. They also said that Slovenia won't be able to host the contest in case of a win. Nearly a month later, Folx also confirmed that they will not take over the participation of Slovenia in the competition.
