The three live shows were directed by Sven Stojanović and the contest was produced by Christer Björkman.The EBU announced on 18 February 2016 that a new voting system would be implemented at the contest for the first time since 1975.However, other cities and arenas were invited to apply, and those making a bid had approximately three weeks to submit their offer to SVT.SVT announced on 1 June the conditions under which cities and venues could announce their interest in hosting the contest: Venue of the final of Melodifestivalen since 2013.The results of countries finishing between 11th and 26th in the public vote are automatically added to the scoreboard, with only the results of the top ten countries being announced by the hosts.The new voting system is also used to determine the qualifiers from each semi-final, but as before the qualifiers are announced in a random order.The winner of the contest was Ukraine with the song "1944", written and performed by Jamala.This was Ukraine's second win and its first since 2004.
Eurovision The Party, hosted by Sanna Nielsen, allowed fans to watch the final on a big screen and featured backstage material from the Ericsson Globe such as Nielsen conducting exclusive interviews and appearing with hosts Petra Mede and Måns Zelmerlöw.
SVT proposed a change of start time of the contest from CEST to CEST on 9 September, arguing that such a change would help to promote family viewing of the contest, especially in eastern Europe when it would run late into the night.
The EBU announced on 23 September that rather than using clips from their respective music videos, extended clips from the dress rehearsals of the six acts who qualified directly to the final (the "Big Five" and Sweden) would be shown as previews during the semi-final in which they were allocated to vote.
Discussions were held in 2014 between the EBU and the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union (ABU) regarding the inclusion of a guest performance from the ABU TV Song Festival at the contest.
The EBU confirmed on 16 July 2015 that they are looking into the possibility of the proposal, which was discussed at the ABU General Assembly in 2014.
