Format[edit | edit source]

  • All competing countries submit an 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 fulfil the rules of the contest.
  • An entry can not have been competing in a previous edition of YSC or YTC. (click on the links to see the former entries)
  • 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 therefore 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 number of competing countries will decide the number of semi-finals, automatic finalists and qualifiers from each semi-final according to the rules of the contest.
  • There are no limits to how many times an artist can participate in the contest. But there are limitations when it comes to how often an artist can participate in the contest.
    • If an artist has participated once, it must wait at least 2 rounds before it can return to the competition. This means that if the artist participated in YSC 22 or later it cannot participate in this edition.
    • If an artist has participated more than once, it must wait at least 4 rounds before it can return to the competition. This means that if the artist participated in YSC 20 or later, it cannot participate before in YSC 25.


Youro Council[edit | edit source]

Country Role
 Arcorar Supervisors
 Uff Da
 Alvinia Council Member
 Asgardia
 Bartistan
 Dacla
 Esdonia

Youro Council is a novelty in Youro Song Contest since the 10th edition. It consists of 7 members and their job is to make sure that all submitted entries to the contest follow the rules set by the YBU. If an entry is considered non-valid by any member, then the council will democratically vote and therefore decide if a country should change their entry.

The council consist of the two supervisors and the four council members. The council members are members elected by the YBU and since YSC 17, they have a permanent seat on the council. As of YSC 22, Dacla joined the council as a permanent member.


Semi-final allocation draw[edit | edit source]

The participating countries have been split into six 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,  Esdonia (Pot 5),  Chibcha Republic (Pot 2),  Elliria (Pot 5),  Hellheim (Pot 4) and  Kashykia (Pot 3) were exempt from the draw due to being automatically qualified to the final.

The following pots are updated after the 20th edition:

Pot 1 Pot 2 Pot 3 Pot 4 Pot 5 Pot 6

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 finalists have to vote in at least one semi-final determined by the YBU.
  • Countries are allowed to vote in the semi-finals they are not competing in, but then as a part of the International Jury. The highest ranked not-qualifying country (a country that would not qualify in the regular voting) in the IJ-voting will qualify.
  • All competing countries are obliged to vote in the final.
  • Failing to vote in the semi-final or the final will result in a strike. The amount of strikes determine the punishment given by the YBU. Strikes received in the semi-final will be deleted if the country votes in the final.
