Order of Performance
The order of performance in the Preliminary round will be decided by ballot in the following manner: The youngest competitor will, in the presence of the other competitors, draw from an urn a slip with the name of a contestant. This contestant will be the first to perform in the Preliminary round; the others will follow in alphabetical order beginning with the first singer’s name and according to the Finnish alphabet, where Z is followed by Å, Ä and Ö before returning to A.
The order of performance will be the same in each round of the competition. The competitors must be present in person at the ballot.
