The Fantasia Contest 8 will be the eight edition of the Fantasia Contest. It will take place in Beklium, following their win in the previous edition with AJR and the song "Weak".

Format[edit]

The competition consisted of three semi-finals and a final. The countries with the highest score in each semi-final qualified to participate in the final, alongside the big five, the countries that were in the top 5 in the previous edition. The shows were hosted by Eddie Redmayne, Hannah Reid, and Julie Van Den Steen.

Fifty-one countries sent their entrants to Capitalia, one less than the previous edition. Kerwan returned; meanwhile Glaray and The White Havens announced their withdrawal from the contest.

The winner was Danskanksova with the song "Turvasana", performed by Jenni Vartiainen and written by her and Jurek. Danskanksova scored 359 points, 29 points above the second placing country, Dýria, which received 330. Demacia, Jarea and Evergreen rounded out the top 5, placing 3rd, 4th and 5th, and receiving 325, 310 and 300 points respectively.

Of the automatic qualifiers, the US Eldance placed the highest, 10th. Alkyria placed 13th and the rest of the automatic qualifiers placed in the bottom 5, with Trivania placing 23rd, Fordia placing 24th and the hosts, Beklium placing last.
