The Youro Song Contest 10 was the tenth edition of the Youro Song Contest. The contest was hosted in Arakhor, Arcorar after their victory in the previous edition with the song Snijeg performed by Nina Kraljić. This is the first time Arcorar had won the contest and also the first time they were hosting Youro Song Contest. In this edition there were 50 confirmed countries where Cowland,Gleylia and Musiclandia all debuted in the contest. 4 countries decided to return to the contest, Aldmeri Dominion, Cooland, Krakøv and Llama Republic all returned to the contest after five, one and five editions break respectively. However South Keipoppia and Xenxusia were forced to skip this edition after failing to vote in the previous edition. Calf Tides, Graustark, Hispanvs Terra, Séneca and Zänä tried to lead a major boycott of the event led by Séneca. This boycott was a result of Séneca's disagreement with the YBU's decisions regarding the future of the contest. However the majority of the countries accepted the YBU's invitation to compete in this edition. Besides Graustark who returned in YSC 13, none of those five countries have ever returned to the contest.

The top 5 from the last edition Arcorar, Campre, Destiny, Mexerica and United Fulania are directly qualified to the final. The Semi Final allocation draw is set to take place on 3 April 2017 in the host city in Arcroar, where the other competing countries were split into two semi finals. The running order of the semi finals will be decided by the local broadcaster along with the YBU. The winner was Coco Islands with the song Placat i Najsilni performed by Magdalena Ena. The top 5 was completed by Bartistan, Schneidsen-Dresselstein, Hastwyn and Teardrop Islands.

The Youro Council was also introduced during this edition, and their goal is to make sure that each submitted entry follow the rules set by the YBU.

Youro Council is a novelty in Youro Song Contest since the 10th edition. It consists of 5 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 change each edition.

Theme[edit | edit source]

On 1 March 2017, the YBU announced that the 10th edition will be a special edition to celebrate 10 wonderful editions. The theme was decided by an online poll where all members of the YBU could vote. The selected theme was "Non-English Songs" but to make it a bit more challenging the YBU decided to "ban" certain languages.

Rules
In this special edition the participating songs can not be performed in any of the following languages:

  • Arabic
  • Chinese
  • English
  • French
  • German
  • Italian
  • Portuguese
  • Russian
  • Spanish

The songs also have to follow the regular rules that apply to this contest.

Semi-final allocation draw[edit | edit source]

The participating countries have been split into five pots based on their overall performance at previous editions of the contest. The 5th pot usually consists of newcomers.

The pots will be updated after the results of the final of the 9th edition.

Pot 1 Pot 2 Pot 3 Pot 4 Pot 5
  •  Aldmeri Dominion submitted an entry after the semi final allocation draw and was drawn to perform in the 2nd semi final. Due to a long break from the contest they were automatically assigned to the 5th pot.

Voting[edit | edit source]

  • All competing countries are obliged to vote in their own semi final. Failing to do so will result in a disqualification of the entry and risk to lose their spot in the final.
  • The automically qualified countries were assigned one semi final they are obliged to vote in.
  • The competing countries are free to broadcast and vote in the other semi final if they wish to do so. Their votes will be counted towards with the international jury along with the votes from the finalists.
  • There will be 11 qualifiers from each semi final. The top 10 will qualify directly, while the 11th qualifier will be the highest ranked country by the international jury that did not finish in the top 10.

The YBU will issue an invitation of participation in the contest to all active members. The following countries that competed in the 9th edition are yet to confirm their participation:

Withdrawing countries[edit | edit source]

  •  Calf Tides announced on 28 March 2017 that they will not compete in the 10th edition after a disagreement between the broadcaster and the council and joining Séneca's boycott to the contest.
  •  Graustark announced on 29 March 2017 that the country will withdraw from the competition, stating there is no motivation to continue participation in the current state of the contest. The country fully agrees with Séneca's reasons to boycott the contest.
  •  Hispanvs Terra On April 1st 2017 The National Broadcasting Company announced its withdrawal from the contest due to a disagreement with the organization's criteria for the selection of artists, as well as considering unnecessary the restrictions of languages of the tenth edition. The foregoing greatly reduced levels of audience in the country and the interest in the contest. On April 2nd 2017, the hispano terran National Broadcasting Company; HTNRTVO, canceled its YBU membership and joined Séneca, Calf Tides and Graustark in their attempt to boycott the contest.
  •  Séneca announced on 15 March 2017 that they might not compete in the 10th edition. Séneca exposed its withdrawal reasons on 29th March. Among which are included the organizing committee's lack of impartiality and objectiveness, preference or conspiracy against certain countries, fake-account usage and conscious draw manipulation in some of the former editions. Séneca TV considered that the organizing committee is acting in an impartial way due to expressing preference or annoyance at the participation of some of the entries. Such committee must maintain the impartiality and seriousness required for organizing the contest in the best possible way. The broadcaster exemplified with some of the accusations written by the organizing committee in which some of the entries are accused of being [sic] "unspired", expressly showing the personal opinion of the organizers. For these various reasons, rating levels have decreased over the time in Séneca causing the country's withdrawal from the contest. The broadcaster lamented all these difficulties and wished the best of luck to all of the participant countries in the contest, hoping the return of the initial spirit of Youro.
  •  South Keipoppia failed to vote in the previous edition, and was there not eligible to compete in this edition.
  •  Zänä announced on 16 March 2017 that they might not compete in the 10th edition. Possible because of Seneca withdrawing from the contest.
  •  Xenxusia failed to vote in the previous edition, and was there not eligible to compete in this edition.
