Welcome to your Eurovision Song Contest.

This was the twenty-fifth Yourovision Song Contest, held in Mariehamn, following Åland's thrilling victory in the preceding contest.

This edition was the first in the history of the contest in which a country's disqualification actively changed the eventual winner of the contest. Romania was leading in points at the close of the voting, but failed to submit their votes, resulting in their disqualification. First place was therefore awarded to the next-highest-scoring country, Canada. Coincidentally, Canada was the only participant country in this edition to receive points from all other voting participants.

Edition 25 - Mariehamn - PersevereEdit

Following Sophia Somajo's victory in the previous edition, Mariehamn was selected, on the spot, to host the following contest, primarily because of its status as the most significant city on the Åland Islands. The slogan was revealed to be "Persevere", accompanied by the imagery of the ocean, both in reference to the theme of the previous winner, "Klein Blue", and to the islands' geography. The message of the slogan was one of staying strong in the face of adversity, to connect the imagery together.

The dates for this edition were:
Participation deadline/Voting begins: 17th February, 2016
Voting deadline: 26th February, 2016
Grand Final: 27th February, 2016
