Which country is our Eurovision Song Contest 2018 Winner Tip? 2018 will see the 63rd running of this famous contest. The Semi-Finals will be held on Tuesday 8 & Thursday 10 May 2018, with the Final on Saturday 12 May 2018. Portugal won for the 1st time in 2017 (and as winners they will host the contest at the Altice Arena in Lisbon), when Salvador Sobral scored the most points with Amor pelos dois (Loving for the both of us).
43 countries will be singing (37 will be competing in one of 2 semi-finals, for 20 Final Spots), whilst the biggest 5 contributors to the EBU (France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom) and the hosts Portugal get automatic entry to the Final. That means there will be 26 countries singing in the final.
