The first of September begins a new Eurovision season and we at Eurovision NI want to keep you updated on all the latest goings on. We’ve created a new table for the 2018 Contest that will let you know which countries will participate, information on the selection process, their artists and their songs. This page will be updated on a regular basis, but this is what we know so far!On 7 November 2017, Portuguese broadcaster RTP confirmed the 42 countries who will participate in Eurovision 2018, and subsequently Macedonia confirmed participation bringing the total to 43.
A number of other nations are eligible to compete, but have chosen to opt out for this year. Andorra, Bosnia- Herzegovina, Monaco, Luxembourg, Slovakia, Morocco, Turkey, Kosovo and Kazakhstan have confirmed that they will not compete in Eurovision 2018. Check out the playlist of the songs so far:
