It's been confirmed that there will be two semi finals in next year's Eurovision Song Contest. What this now means is that it's back to square one for every country (well, every country except the hosts and the "Big 4" - the UK, France, Germany and Spain).
Rumours - these are only rumours at this stage - that there is the possibility of either the return of a full jury vote or a split between televoting and back-up jury in order to reduce the ridiculous neighbour voting, which in our view is killing the contest.
Anyway, nine countries will qualify from each semi final and there will also be a wildcard entrant chosen from each semi.
I'm not sure if this will make the contest any better, but I suppose it can't get any worse than it is at the moment.
