The Eurovision Song Contest 2017 will be the 62nd edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. It will take place in the International Exhibition Centre in Kiev, Ukraine, following Ukraine's victory at the 2016 contest in Stockholm with the song "1944", written and performed by Jamala. The contest is expected to consist of two semi-finals on 9 and 11 May and the final on 13 May 2017. Forty-three countries will participate in the 2017 contest. Portugal and Romania will return to the contest; both of whom were absent from the 2016 edition. Bosnia and Herzegovina, who had returned in 2016, have withdrawn due to financial difficulties. KYIV Post Wikipedia
