Event Information: The Eurovision Song Contest (French: Concours Eurovision de la Chanson) or ESC is an annual competition held among active member countries of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU).

The Eurovision Song Contest will be the 57th annual Eurovision Song Contest. It will be held in Baku, Azerbaijan, following Azerbaijan's win in the Contest with Eldar & Nigar's song "Running Scared". The two semi-finals will be held on 22 May and 24 May , and the final on 26 May . Ten countries from each semi-final will qualify for the final and will be joined by Azerbaijan, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom. Forty-two countries have announced their participation in the contest, with Montenegro returning, having last taken part in 2009, and Poland and Armenia withdrawing.

The venue for the Contest is the Baku Crystal Hall in the Azerbaijani capital. On 16 May , it was announced that a special concert complex with 23,000 seats for the Contest was to be built near National Flag Square in Baku. Three days later, organisers announced that they may use the Tofiq Bahramov Stadium which contains 37,000 seats, or the Heydar Aliyev Sports and Exhibition Complex. On 4 August , it was confirmed that the laying of foundations for the Baku Crystal Hall had started near the National Flag Square,[8] but did not confirm that this was the location. The foundations were completed on 14 October , but the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), the organisers of the Eurovision Song Contest, did still not confirm the location. Tofiq Bahramov Stadium, which is currently under repairs to host the FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup in September–October , was to be used as a back-up option.

On 8 September , Azad Azerbaijan TV (ATV) reported that Baku Crystal Hall will be the venue of Eurovision Song Contest , despite not being the host broadcaster of the contest. No formal confirmation was made at the time by the EBU. On 31 October , Mr. Ismayil Omarov, the director general of Azerbaijani national broadcaster İctimai Television announced that a decision on the venue choice would be taken by the steering committee in January . On 25 January , it was confirmed that the Baku Crystal Hall will be the venue of the Eurovision Song Contest . Even though the venue has an extended capacity of 23,000 people, only 16,000 people will be able to attend each show.
