As interesting as possible for the viewers
Christer Björkman, Contest Producer for Eurovision 2016 says:
– My goal is to give every song maximum space so it's surrounded by other songs that make it stand out and shine for three minutes. This also reduces the anxiety surrounding where a country is placed in the running order. Wherever the artist is singing they have a chance to be noticed.
– The ambition is to make the starting order and thereby the live shows as interesting as possible for the viewers. This was also the reason for the change of rules three years ago, as the draw of lots made it possible for several similar songs to be placed after each other
