Dating contest

After viewers have cast their votes, the results of each professional jury are presented, with countries receiving 1-8 and 10 points being displayed on-screen instead of 1-7, which had been the case since 2006, and the national spokesperson announcing only the country to which they award 12 points.After the results of the professional juries are presented, the televoting points from all participating countries are combined, providing one score for each song.This was the third time the contest had taken place in Stockholm, after 19.The contest was held at the Ericsson Globe and consisted of two semi-finals on 10 and 12 May and the final on , with all three live shows hosted by Zelmerlöw and Petra Mede.However, other cities and arenas were invited to apply, and those making a bid had approximately three weeks to submit their offer to SVT.SVT announced on 1 June the conditions under which cities and venues could announce their interest in hosting the contest: Venue of the final of Melodifestivalen since 2013.SVT proposed a change of start time of the contest from CEST to CEST on 9 September, arguing that such a change would help to promote family viewing of the contest, especially in eastern Europe when it would run late into the night.The EBU announced on 23 September that rather than using clips from their respective music videos, extended clips from the dress rehearsals of the six acts who qualified directly to the final (the "Big Five" and Sweden) would be shown as previews during the semi-final in which they were allocated to vote.

It took place in Stockholm, Sweden, following Måns Zelmerlöw's win at the 2015 contest in Vienna, Austria with the song "Heroes".The new system, inspired by the voting system of Melodifestivalen, involves each country now awarding two sets of points from 1-8, 10 and 12: one from their professional jury and the other from televoting.Televoting votes from all the countries are pooled.Twenty-six countries competed in the final, which was the first to be broadcast on live television in the United States.

The Czech Republic managed to qualify for the final for the first time in five attempts since its debut in 2007, while both Bosnia and Herzegovina and Greece failed to qualify from the semi-finals for the first time ever, the latter being absent from the final for the first time since 2000.

Portugal withdrew, largely due to their national broadcaster's insufficient promotion of their music-based media, while Romania had originally planned to participate, but was forced to withdraw due to repeated non-payment of debts by their national broadcaster to the European Broadcasting Union (EBU).
