The semi-final allocation draw has been held in the city hall of Lisbon. The draw determined which countries will perform in which semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 in Lisbon. The 37 semi-finalists were allocated into six pots, based on their historical voting patterns. The pots help to reduce bloc voting during the semi-finals and increase the suspense of the voting. Spain, the United Kingdom and Portugal are the finalists who will vote in the first semi-final.
