The Youro Theme Contest 13 was the thirteenth edition of the Youro Theme Contest. The edition took place in Slavonska Lipa, Southern Slavonia after their victory in the previous edition with the song Holding Out for a Hero performed by Bonnie Tyler. This was the first time that Southern Slavonia had won the contest and therefore the first time they hosted the contest.

A total of 29 countries competed in this edition, where Renaoland debuted in the contest. Chibcha Republic, Hellheim and Ikana returned to the contest, while Cowland, Enzowood and Mărium did not submit an entry to this edition. The top 11 of the previous edition (Cowland) were directly qualified to this edition's final, while the other 19 countries competed in the semi-final.

The contest was won by The Kaju's with the song En Värld Full Av Strider performed by Jon Henrik Fjällgren Feat. Aninia. The song achieved a score of 122 points, 7 more points than the runner-up from Josem. This was the first time that The Kaju's had won the contest after previously finished 3rd in the 5th edition. They also became the fourth country to have won both the Youro Song Contest and Theme Contest.

Format[edit | edit source]

  • Each edition in Youro Theme Contest consist of a theme chosen by the host broadcaster.
  • If there are 28-37 countries competing, then there will be a semi-final and a final. The top 10 of the previous edition will be pre-qualified to the final, while the rest of the participants will compete in the semi-final. The amount of qualifiers depends on the number of semi-finalists:
    • < 20 semi-finalists: The top 9 + IJ favourite will qualify (20 finalists)
    • ≥ 20 semi-finalists: The top 12 + IJ favourite will qualify (23 finalists)
  • If there are 38 or more participants, then the top 5 of the previous edition will be pre-qualified to the final. The rest of the participants are then split into two semi-finals with 10 qualifiers from each semi-final.
    • The top 9 + IJ favourite will qualify for the final (25 finalists)
  • 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 YTC 11 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 YTC 9 or later, it cannot participate before in YTC 14.

Theme[edit | edit source]

This edition's theme was songs that competed in a national final for the Eurovision Song Contest. All songs that did not win and represented the country in Eurovision are able to compete.

  • There can be only 4 songs from each national final. This is to avoid only songs from big NFs, which means if there are already 4 songs from Melodifestivalen, MGP etc. you can not send a song from that NF.
  • The video has to be of a live performance, and hopefully in a good quality.

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 and they will also receive a strike. However, they won't be banned from the next edition if they manage to vote in the final.
  • The finalists are also obliged to vote in the semi-final but then as a part of the International Jury and they will decide one of the qualifiers. If a finalist forgets to vote in time, their entry will receive a penalty of minus 25% to their points in the final.
  • 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 and a ban from the following edition. The amount of strikes determine the punishment given by the YBU. Strike or bans received in the semi-final will be deleted if the country votes in the final.
