The Eurovision NI World Cup kicked off in 2016 crowning Ireland’s Nicky Byrne as the first champion. It returned in 2017 and the final was won by Israel’s Imri Ziv. The competition returns for a third year but who will join the Hall of Champions? Find out how the competition works.
We have placed all the countries competing in Eurovision into different pots depending on their status/geographical location/history in the contest to make the draw fairer. This draw then determined the group stage with one act from each pot in each group (see below).
|Group A||Group B||Group C||Group D|
|Group E||Group F||Group G||Group H|
