4 NEW PARTICIPANTS

The 2015-2016 selection rounds revealed 4 new countries: Thailand, India, Indonesia and Chile, that will join the final of the contest for the very first time. The 2017 edition will also mark the return of France. Indeed, as the winners of the 2013 edition, the country was not allowed to take part in 2015.

In order to maintain a certain pressure on the finalists, in June this year, the organisers released the details concerning the new rules to be introduced for the final in 2017.
