It has been previously reported that the 60th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest would have 38 countries competing.

However, in a cryptic tweet on Thursday, Executive supervisor, Jon Ola Sand has begun rumours of a 39th country joining the contest in Vienna, simply writing “39.”



Who could it be?

Bulgaria had sent an application for participation in 2015, however, on October 10th it was confirmed that BNT would not return due to financial reasons. On October 31st BNT, said that the EBU had given them extra time to solve their financial issues.

On September 19th, Ukraine’s broadcaster, NTU, said that Ukraine would not be participating due to financial issues and the current political crisis going on in the country. On 20 September 2014, Ukrainian music producer Timofey Nagorny announced that he would be willing to fund and arrange a Ukrainian entry for 2015.

Other possibilities are Croatia, Turkey, and Slovakia.
