This was the first time since the introduction of professional jury voting in 2009 that the overall winner won neither the jury vote, which was won by Australia, nor the televote, which was won by Russia, with Ukraine placing second in both.
It was also the first song with lyrics in Crimean Tatar to win or enter the contest. Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia and Ukraine returned after absences from recent contests, while Australia also returned after debuting as a special guest in 2015.
This was the third time the contest had taken place in Stockholm, after 19.
The contest was held at the Ericsson Globe and consisted of two semi-finals on 10 and 12 May and the final on , with all three live shows hosted by Zelmerlöw and Petra Mede.
The Eurovision Song Contest 2016 was the 61st edition of the annual Eurovision Song Contest.
It took place in Stockholm, Sweden, following Måns Zelmerlöw's win at the 2015 contest in Vienna, Austria with the song "Heroes".
Therefore, if a country cannot deliver a valid televoting/jury result, a substitute result is calculated by the jury/televoting result of a pre-selected group of countries approved by the contest's Reference Group.SVT proposed a change of start time of the contest from CEST to CEST on 9 September, arguing that such a change would help to promote family viewing of the contest, especially in eastern Europe when it would run late into the night.The EBU announced on 23 September that rather than using clips from their respective music videos, extended clips from the dress rehearsals of the six acts who qualified directly to the final (the "Big Five" and Sweden) would be shown as previews during the semi-final in which they were allocated to vote.Twenty-six countries competed in the final, which was the first to be broadcast on live television in the United States.The Czech Republic managed to qualify for the final for the first time in five attempts since its debut in 2007, while both Bosnia and Herzegovina and Greece failed to qualify from the semi-finals for the first time ever, the latter being absent from the final for the first time since 2000.Friends Arena is the biggest football stadium and indoor venue in Sweden and the Nordic countries.However, it was reportedly not part of Stockholm's bid.Portugal withdrew, largely due to their national broadcaster's insufficient promotion of their music-based media, while Romania had originally planned to participate, but was forced to withdraw due to repeated non-payment of debts by their national broadcaster to the European Broadcasting Union (EBU).The contest was also the first to implement a voting system change since 1975: each country's professional jury points were announced largely as before, while the results of each national televote were combined and announced in reverse order.The results of countries finishing between 11th and 26th in the public vote are automatically added to the scoreboard, with only the results of the top ten countries being announced by the hosts.The new voting system is also used to determine the qualifiers from each semi-final, but as before the qualifiers are announced in a random order.
