The Youro Song Contest 18 was the eighteenth edition of the Youro Song Contest. The contest will take place in Matangi, Bartistan after their victory in the 17th edition with the song "Moya lyubov" by Max Barskih. This was the first time that a city hosted the contest more than once, and also third time that a country hosted the contest more than once.

A total of 50 countries competed in this edition tho no countries debuted in this edition. However Edria, Gmalazia and Vallésta all returned to the contest after having a small break from the contest. After being banned from the contest during the previous edition, Golden Eagle were forced to withdraw from the contest. Mistralton failed to vote in the final of the previous edition, and were therefor not eligible to compete in this edition, while Mba decided to withdraw from the contest but no specific reason was given by the broadcaster. Taurunia was set to compete in this edition, but after some YBU members declined to participate in a Taurunian contest, they got furious and rage quit from the contest right before the semi finals started.

The top 3 from the last edition BartistanPhytopia and Southern Slavonia were directly qualified to the final, while the other competing countries were all split into three semi finals where the 8 songs qualified from each semi final.

The winner was The Kaju's with the song My Indigo performed by My Indigo. They achieved a total of 210 points, making it one of the most successful winners, and the fifth winner to achieve a score of more than 200 points receiving 51 more points than the runner-up from Auryville. The top 3 was completed by Vaguelone Bay who managed to achieve a top 10 place for the first time since the first edition when they came 11th. 3 countries failed to vote in the 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.

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,  Bartistan,  Phytopia and  Southern Slavonia were exempt from the draw.  Taurunia was drawn to perform in the 2nd semi final, but after a rage quit from the contest they were never seen to perform in the 2nd semi final as planned.

The YBU will issue an invitation of participation in the contest to all active members. The following countries that competed in the 17th edition gave the following statements regarding their participation in this edition: 

Withdrawing nations[edit | edit source]

  •  Golden Eagle was forced to withdraw from the contest after the broadcaster has acted unethically towards the YBU. The broadcaster was also given a ban from the competition due to an attempt to cheat in the contest.
  •  Mba announced that they won't be competing in this edition when they submitted their votes for the final of YSC 17. No specific reason was given by the broadcaster.
  •  Mistralton failed to vote in the final of YSC 17, and was therefore not edible to compete in this edition.

Incidents[edit | edit source]

 Taurunia was set to compete in this edition with the song Aşka Inanmaz performed by Kendi. However Taurunia decided to rage quit from the contest right before the start of the semi finals. The YBU announced on 2 December 2017 that the broadcaster from Taurunia has withdrawn from the contest, after several delegations refused to compete in a local contest in Taurunia. The delegation from Taurunia was furious and therefore decided to withdraw their entry from this edition, and would never return to the contest. Kendi never got the opportunity to perform her entry on the stage in the second semi final.
