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.

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 were updated after the results of the final of the 10th edition. The host nation,  Coco Islands, was exempt from the draw along  Bartistan,  Esdonia,  Hastwyn and  Teardrop Islands who all finished in the top 5 in the previous edition and they were therefore not assigned to a pot. The countries  Aevyntiria and  Aldmeri Dominion were supposed to be in Pot 3 and 2 respectively but withdrew for an edition due to a busy schedule.

Pot 1 Pot 2 Pot 3 Pot 4 Pot 5
