Welcome to your Eurovision Song Contest.

This was the eighteenth edition of the Yourovision Song Contest, hosted in Dublin, following Hozier's victory in the previous edition.

Owing partly to its status as a special edition of the contest, and despite the fact that only three countries new to the contest-- Azerbaijan, South Korea and Sri Lanka-- were making their début, this edition was both the biggest yet, with 30 countries having entered the contest, and the statistically closest throughout the voting.

This has led to not only the largest semi-finals in the contest to date (two shows, with 14 songs apiece), but also-- and by a very wide margin-- the largest number of returning artists, with no less than ten former participants returning to the contest to try again, including the Studio Killers, who were one of the first artists confirmed to be taking part in the first edition of the contest, in the September of 2013.

Edition 18 - Dublin - Fortune Favours The BraveEdit

This was the second time Ireland has hosted the contest, and Dublin was chosen as the host city, since Ireland's previous hosting took place in the city of Ennis. In keeping with the Irish theme, the slogan and theme-art was inspired by the legend of the leprechaun, and the "luck of the Irish", adapted to tell a more inclusive, inspiring story.

The dates for this edition are:

Participation deadline/Semi-final voting begins: 2nd June, 2015
Semi-final voting deadline: 14th June, 2015
Grand Final voting begins: 15th June, 2015
Grand Final: 28th June, 2015
