[113][114] Radiotelevisión Española (RTVE) also expressed their concern to the EBU and requested a rectification,[115] with the EBU responding, saying that while the flag of the Basque Country is not specifically forbidden, it is an example of a banned flag, adding that only the "official national flags of the 42 participating countries, or from one of the countries that have recently taken part", "official national flags of any of the other United Nations member states", the flag of Europe and the rainbow flag were permitted. [26][27] Executive Producer of the contest Johan Bernhagen has stated that the event complements existing events being held at the Eurovision Village and the EuroClub, and it is hoped that Eurovision The Party would become an annual event in the host city of the contest.

Malta finished last on its first two attempts in 1971 and 1972, and had a 16-year absence from the contest between 1975 and 1991. [41][63] The highlighted countries qualified for the final. Eligibility for potential participation in the Eurovision Song Contest requires a national broadcaster with active EBU membership that would be able to broadcast the contest via the Eurovision network. Johan Bernhagen and Martin Österdahl were Executive Producers, while Tobias Åberg was Head of Production. It was also the first song with lyrics in Crimean Tatar to win or enter the contest. [43] The opening act of the final was a parade of flags similar to final opening ceremonies since 2013, themed as a tribute to Swedish fashion design and dance music with artists being welcomed on stage in a catwalk fashion show with flags being projected onto 26 dresses designed by Bea Szenfeld. Ukraine was the winner of Eurovision 2016 with 534 points The statement also clarified that the other four jury members submitted a valid jury vote.
