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. It is the contest with the most amount of withdrawals, with 19 countries leaving the competition; six being permanent members. Although several countries managed to make the top four, the CCU stated that it would take time to process their application into the CCU.
The contest is the first since the fifth edition that had only countries exclusive to the Country Contest Union, after six editions with Australia, Brazil, South Korea/Africa and the load of countries in tenth. However, Brazil was listed as one of the competing countries in order to defend their winning title.

Country limit Edit
The CCU announced on 9 June 2017 after the deadline that effective next edition, the contest would be limited to 46 countries. This comes after the tenth contest had a record breaking amount of 58 countries, which meant three semi-finals had to take place; this which CCU does not want to happen again. This edition also will mark the highest amount of participants without (any) guest countries.
Other countries Edit
- Spain: RTVE announced on 7 June 2017 that Spain would withdraw from the contest due to "reforming Spain's participation format." Having only missed the contest twice, it's the first absence for 7 editions.
