The Youro Song Contest 19 was the nineteenth edition of the Youro Song Contest. It took place in Gojira in The Kaju's after their massive victory in the previous edition. They won with the song My Indigo performed by My Indigo, and they achieved a total of 210 points. The host country, the runner-up from Auryville and the third place Vaguelone Bay were directly to this edition's final. In this edition a total of 49 countries took part with Kosma and Vovaltik competing for the first time, while Cooland, Cowland and Gmalazia decided to not compete in this edition. Originally Cowland, Gmalazia and Unedig Cymru were not allowed to compete, but YBU gave them an opportunity to compete despite not voting in the previous edition. Cowland and Gmalazia declined the offer and therefor did not compete in this edition, while Unedig Cymru submitted an entry. However Unedig Cymru failed to vote in the semi final.

The Semi Final allocation draw took place on 2 January in the YBU headquarters in Uff Da, where the other competing countries were split into three semi finals. During this ceremony, the semi final running order was revealed as well.

The winner was Destiny with the song Strangers performed by Sigrid. The song achieved a score of 207 points, 47 more points than the runner-up from Kashykia. The two debuting countries Kosma and Vovaltik finished 3rd and 5th respectively, which means that Kosma will be directly qualified to the final in the upcoming edition along with Destiny and Kashykia. Jeokoch failed to vote in the final, while Hellheim and Unedig Cymru failed to vote in the semi final.

Sharon den Adel competed in the 18th edition as part of the project My Indigo. She is the main reason why The Kaju's is hosting this edition as she won the contest with a big score of 210 points.

Format[edit | edit source]

  • All competing countries submit a entry chosen either internally by the broadcaster or through a national selection. The entry has to follow the rules given by the YBU. The council have the right to decline the entry if they feel that the entry chosen do not fulfill the rules of the ccontest. 
  • The contest will consist of a grand final, and in the case when there are more participants than can reasonably compete in one show, semi-finals will be introduced. The winning country will host the next edition and therefor be pre-qualified to the final as the hosts. In those cases where a country decline to host the contest, they can become pre-qualified as the winning country along with the host of that respective edition.
  • The amount of competing countries will decide the amount of semi finals.
  • If the amount of countries reach 36 or more participants then the top 3 of the previous edition will be pre-qualified to this edition's final.

Youro Council is a novelty in Youro Song Contest since the 10th edition. It consists of 5-7 members who discuss if the selected songs are valid for the contest. If a song is considered non-valid by any member, a council then democratically votes and therefore decides if a country should change the song. Council members are from YSC 17 permanent members and are elected by the YBU. From YSC 19, the host country will also be a part of the council which means that the council will have 7 members.


Semi-final allocation draw[edit | edit source]

The participating countries have been split into seven pots based on their voting similarity at previous editions of the contest. The voting similarity and pots are calculated by the URTV (Radio & TV Uvolf) and YBU.

The host nation,  The Kaju's (Pot 7),  Auryville (Pot 2) and  Vaguelone Bay (Pot 6) were exempt from the draw due to being automatically qualified to the final.  Cowland (Pot 4) announced that they won't be competing after failing to submit their votes for the 18th final.
