The Youro Song Contest 12 was the twelfth edition of the Youro Song Contest. The contest was hosted in Selita which is the biggest city in Niterus Kingdom, after their victory in the previous edition with the song No Roots performed by Alice Merton. This was the first time Niterus Kingdom had won the contest and also the first time they were hosting Youro Song Contest. In this edition there were 50 competing countries of which Afrikan, Gmalazia, Gypsiland, Josem, Limnoupolitana, Presivea Republic, Raynela, Red Sea Islands, and Unedig Cymru debuted in the contest. After a short break Hellheim, Shotländ, Southern Slavonia and Vijamar decided to return to the contest, while Asgardia, Chakaria, Cooland, Gleylia, and Sakamichiland have confirmed that they would withdraw from the contest.

The top 5 from the last edition Lazanistan, Limania, Niterus Kingdom, The Kaju's and Volbaria were directly qualified to the final, while the other competing countries were split into two semi finals. The semi final allocation draw took place on 31 May 2017 in the YBU headquarters in Uff Da, where the other competing countries were split into two semi finals. The running order was announced on 3 June 2017 when the edition began. The winner was Uff Da with the song What You Do, performed by Margaret. This was the first time that a country had won the contest more than one time, and therefor also the second time that Uff Da had won the contest. They achieved a total of 177 points, only 28 points more than the runner-up from Phoenix Bay which qualified to the final through the international jury. The the top 5 was completed by Coco Islands, Hastwyn and Macedonian Kingdom.

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 will be updated after the results of the final of the 11th edition.

Pot 1 Pot 2 Pot 3 Pot 4 Pot 5

  •  Asgardia announced that they will not be competing in this edition. However no reason was given by the broadcaster.
  •  Chakaria announced on 17 May 2017 that they did not intend to join this edition. No specific reason was given by the broadcaster.
  •  Cooland announced on 28 May 2017 that they did not intend to join this edition. No specific reason was given by the broadcaster.
  •  Gleylia announced that they did not intend to join this edition. Some saying that the issue in YSC11 with the voting dramas could have played a role in the no-appearance of the nation.
  •  Sakamichiland decided to take a break from at least two next contests, as they have more domestic programmes to be prioritised on June-July 2017. The national broadcaster, SBC, expects to return on YSC 14 or 15. In case the country wins YSC 11, they'll give the opportunity to host to any other country willing; if they managed to reach 2nd to 5th place, they'll also happily let YSC 11's 6th placed country take their position in YSC 12 final.
