It took place in Kiev, Ukraine, following Jamala's win at the {{Escyr|2016||2016 contest}} in Stockholm, Sweden with the song "1944". This was the second time the contest took place in Kiev, after {{Escyr|2005}}, as well as the fourth Eurovision event, after the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in {{Escyr|2009|Junior}} and {{Escyr|2013|Junior}}. The contest was held at the International Exhibition Centre and consisted of two semi-finals on 9 and 11 May, and the final on 13 May 2017. All three live shows were hosted by Oleksandr Skichko, Volodymyr Ostapchuk and Timur Miroshnychenko.Forty-two countries participated in the contest. {{Esccnty|Portugal}} and {{Esccnty|Romania}} returned to the contest after a year's absence, while {{Esccnty|Bosnia and Herzegovina}} withdrew on financial grounds. {{Esccnty|Russia}} had originally planned to participate, but announced their withdrawal on 13 April 2017, after their representative, Julia Samoylova, was banned from entering Ukraine by virtue of having travelled directly from Russia to Crimea in 2015, a region that was annexed by Russia in 2014, to give a performance, which is illegal under Ukrainian law.The winner was Portugal with the song "Amar pelos dois" (Loving For Both of Us), performed by Salvador Sobral and written by his sister Luísa Sobral. This was Portugal's first win – and first top five placing – in 53 years of participation, the longest winless run by a country in Eurovision history. It was also the first winning song entirely performed in a country's native language since {{Esccnty|Serbia|y=2007}}'s "Molitva" in {{Escyr|2007}}, and the first winner written in triple metre since {{Esccnty|Ireland|y=1996}}'s "The Voice" in {{Escyr|1996}}. Additionally, this was the second consecutive year in which a returning country won the contest following Ukraine's victory in 2016. The top three countries – Portugal, {{Esccnty|Bulgaria|y=2017}} and {{Esccnty|Moldova|y=2017}} – achieved the highest placing in their Eurovision history, while host country Ukraine received its worst placing to date in a Eurovision final.

Semi-final allocation draw

The draw to determine the allocation of the participating countries into their respective semi-finals took place at Column Hall on 31 January 2017, hosted by Timur Miroshnychenko and Nika Konstantinova. The thirty-seven semi-finalists had been allocated into six pots, based on historical voting patterns as calculated by the contest's official televoting partner Digame. Drawing from different pots helps to reduce the chance of so-called "bloc voting" and increase suspense in the semi-finals.WEB, Jordan, Paul, 25 January 2017,weblink Semi-Final Allocation draw to take place in Kyiv, eurovision.tv, 25 January 2017, {| class="wikitable"!Pot 1!Pot 2!Pot 3!Pot 4!Pot 5!Pot 6

Israeli broadcaster compromise

Under a proposal by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon, the Israeli Broadcasting Authority (IBA) was reorganised into two separate entities: the Israel Public Broadcasting Corporation (IPBC), with responsibility for "general programming" such as entertainment, and another with responsibility for news and current affairs programming. The IPBC is also branded as "KAN" (). The EBU informed the IPBC executive board on 7 April that such a compromise would render them unable to remain a member without an outlet for news and current events programming. It has been reported that the IBA may cease to be a member of the EBU.WEB,weblink Israel's national broadcaster no longer meets EBU requirements, 7 April 2017, eurovoix.com, Euroviox, 8 April 2017, NPBC, The IBA was expected to close down on 15 May 2017 before the IPBC was expected to launch.

Argument for using pre-recorded vocals live

Norsk rikskringkasting (NRK) had discussions with the EBU regarding the abolition of the rule prohibiting pre-recorded vocals during live performances at the contest. Such a rule is intended to guarantee the authenticity of live performances.WEB, JOWST from Norway: We're in it to win it,weblink eurovisionworld.com, Eurovisionworld, 24 March 2017, 24 March 2017, The discussion stems from when Norwegian representative JOWST stated his displeasure at the rule in an interview on 24 March, in reference to the sampling technique of chopped vocals in his song "Grab the Moment" which cannot be attributed in the live performance.Such discussions were also in place in {{Escyr|1999}}, when pre-recorded vocals during the Croatian entry, "Marija Magdalena", performed by Doris Dragović, led to objections by the Norwegian delegation — led at the time by Jon Ola Sand. Such objections led the EBU to consider deducting a third of Croatia's final score, reducing it from 118 points to 79. However, such a deduction never occurred.{{Citation needed|reason=The 1999 Wikipedia article discusses this topic with references, but no information can be found.|date=April 2017}} The possible abolition of the rule, alongside the abolition of the live orchestra in 1999, has led some fans and critics of the contest to argue that the contest has become too commercialised and the authenticity of live performances has been compromised.After discussing the matter with the EBU, NRK were granted an exception to the rule. JOWST stated that "[the Norwegian delegation] have now been allowed to use the recorded vocal tracks, [...]. But [they] have also practiced a plan B with the backing vocalists, if there are big protests from others in Kiev."WEB,weblink Her står JOWST på Eurovision-scenen for første gang, Both JOWST and Aleksander Walmann think that had "Grab the Moment" been in the semi-final of the 2018 contest following an abolition of the rule, they would have had an advantage.

Norwegian jury replacement

Norwegian jury member Per Sundnes made comments on NRK preview show Adresse Kiev on 17 April 2017 against Irish representative Brendan Murray, saying: "It's been a long time since they've gotten up and I do not think they'll do it again. They try the same formula year after year."WEB,weblink NRK TV - Se Adresse Kiev, The comments were not welcomed by the Irish delegation, who subsequently reported the matter to the EBU.WEB,weblink Norway: Per Sundnes Removed As Juror, Anthony Granger • 2 days, ago, 8 May 2017, The Irish Independent reported on 8 May that Sundnes had been replaced due to an alleged breach in jury rules. Commenting on the decision, the Head of Delegation for Ireland, Michael Kealy, said: "I'm glad that the European Broadcasting Union have reacted swiftly to this situation and that all jury members are impartial. It's only fair that each song in the Eurovision Song Contest is judged on its individual merits on the night." Sundnes was subsequently replaced by Erland Bakke.WEB,weblink Eurovision juror replaced 'due to breach of rules' following comments about Ireland's entry - Independent.ie, Sundnes stated in an interview with Verdens Gang on 9 May: "I do not know anything about the jury stuff, just that I'm not [in it].

However, when they were informed by the EBU that this was against the rules, they rectified the situation quickly. Project manager for Melodi Grand Prix, Stig Karlsen, stated: "We have received some concerns from several teams that Per has been in the jury, while at the same time he has been meaningful in the program. Therefore, we took a new assessment.".WEB,weblink Per Sundnes ut av Eurovision-jury etter irsk klage, NRK,

Estonian technical issues

On 11 May 2017, during the transmission of the second semi-final, the microphone of the Estonian representative seemed to have malfunctioned as singer Laura Põldvere could not be heard for approximately two seconds by viewers at home. It was later revealed that the Estonian delegation considered appealing to the EBU to allow Laura and Koit Toome to perform their entry "Verona" again as a result of the error, but later decided against it. Mart Normet, the Head of Delegation for Estonia, explained "If there has been such a powerful performance for three minutes and given an absolute maximum, then this energy again does not come back when you go on stage again". The EBU responded to the situation, reportedly describing the error as purely technical, as the microphone was supposed to automatically come on. Instead, a sound technician was forced to respond by manually switching on the microphone via the sound desk.WEB, Granger, Anthony, Estonia: Delegation considered appealing to perform again,weblink eurovoix.com, Eurovoix, 12 May 2017, 12 May 2017, The country ultimately failed to reach the grand final, with Põldvere expressing her annoyance, however stating "I do not think it’s so tremendously influenced when a few words remain unheard".WEB, Ernits, Ruth, Eesti eurotiim selgitas tehnilise apsu tagamaid,weblink eer.ee, Eesti Rahvusringhääling, 12 May 2017, 12 May 2017,
