Country Contest
◄9 Eurovision Heart 11►

The Country Contest 7 was the seventh edition of the contest. It featured the return of the semi-finals and revelation of split voting results. For the first time ever, the contest featured a total of 3 semi-finals and a final consisting of 28 countries.

To ensure the tenth anniversary contest would be the biggest and best contest yet, the CCU decided to decrease the participation fee for the event to allow more countries to participate. This is why BBC, one of CCU's biggest contributors, was chosen as the host broadcaster of the event. For the first time ever, the CCU issued mail to all of its members to participate this edition.

Format Edit

The CCU announced on 4 June 2017 that 58 countries would participate in the contest, with ten international countries debuting and eight countries returning; two which are international. Due to the large number of participating countries, it was decided that there would for the first time be three semi-finals with 18 countries each. Seven countries will qualify from each semi-final joining the Big Four in a record-breaking twenty-four country grand final.
