April 2016 saw the 86th edition of Forum Song Contest, held in the city of Lviv, Ukraine, after group The Hardkiss won the preceding edition.

28 nations gathered in Ukraine, one less than in the last edition: While Austria and Brazil returned after one-edition absences, France, Malaysia and the United States did not send an entry.

Australia scored its fifth FSC thanks to Sia and her song "Unstoppable". This marks the second time Sia wins the competition (the last time being October 2015) and makes her join the group of multiple winners, that includes (at point of FSC 86) artists like Tom Dice, Ella Henderson, Rachel Platten, among others. Croatia earned the silver medal.

Switzerland would have reached the third place, but it did not vote, so the Swiss entry was moved to the bottom of the scoreboard - with the benefit for Japan, who now filled the top three. Furthermore, the fourth place for the FSC Philippines means their best ranking to date and their first top ten place in nearly two years.

The Host City Edit

Lviv is the largest city in western Ukraine and the seventh largest city in the country overall, and one of the main cultural centres of Ukraine. Named in honor of the Leo, the eldest son of Rus' King Daniel of Galicia.

Lviv was the centre of the historical region of Galicia. The historical heart of the city, with its old buildings and cobblestone streets, survived Soviet and German occupations during World War II largely unscathed. The city has many industries and institutions of higher education such as Lviv University and Lviv Polytechnic. Lviv is also the home of many world-class cultural institutions, including a philharmonic orchestra and the famous Lviv Theatre of Opera and Ballet. The historic city centre is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
