It was originally to be held in Canedonia and Lyapunovia, the second joint hosting in NSC history (the first was in NSC 36) (see below). Gabriel, one of the founding nations of the contest, announced it would fully withdraw this edition. Zaprya won the contest for the first time, beating second-placed (and first time Top 6-er) Luniana by just one single point for the title.

Controversy

This edition became known for the sudden disappearance of the original semi-finals host, Lyapunovia, shortly after they confirmed their entry. This led to speculation as to how the show would begin. Eventually, it led to the winner of the previous edition, Canedonia, hosting the semi-finals too. Lyapunovia is also at risk of losing their final place due to not voting in the semi-finals. In this case, the best average score of the 11th places countries will qualify.

Winning song
