Finland earned the right to host the event after
heavy metalband Lordi's victory at the Eurovision Song Contest 2006. It was the first time the Contest had been held in Finland. A budget of €13 million was presented for arranging the contest. Other bids to host the contest came from Espoo, Turkuand Tampere. The hosts were Finnish television personality Jaana Pelkonenand Finnish musician, stage performer and actor Mikko Leppilampi. Krisse Salminenacted as guest host in the green room, and reported from the crowds at the Senate Square.
A record number of 42 countries participated. The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) put aside its limit of 40 countries, which would have meant excluding some countries using a ranking order scheme.fact|date=November 2007
The official logo of the contest remained the same as 2006; the flag in the centre of the heart was changed to the Finnish flag. The European Broadcasting Union and YLE announced that the theme for the 2007 contest would be "True Fantasy", which embraced Finland and "Finnishness" in terms of the polarities associated with the country.

Some countries have protested against the voting system following the 2007 contest. Robert Abela, in charge of
Malta's contingent, suggested many results were "not based solely on the public vote", while also admitting the 12 points Malta gave United Kingdom were fixed deliberately in protest of bloc-voting. "The way the voting is processed in the EBU is wrong, and needs updating", say many Eurovision fans. cite web|url=http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/6654719.stm|title=Malta slates Eurovision's voting|publisher= BBC News|date= 2007-05-14|accessdate=2007-05-17]
Bildcommented on the irony that Western European countries pay the largest amount for a competition where they apparently have no chance of winning. Germany's sole winner, Nicole, was also quoted as saying "It is obvious that Eastern European countries engage in dirty trade with points every year. Germany should withdraw from the competition". The voting was also brought up in the Parliament of the United Kingdomby Liberal Democrat MP Richard Younger-Rosswho suggested the current voting system is "harmful to the relationship between the peoples of Europe". [cite web|url=http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/6657207.stm|title=MP demands Eurovision vote change|publisher= BBC News|date= 2007-05-15|accessdate=2007-05-17]
In contrast, both EBU and many papers in the same West European countries hit back strongly at this criticism, saying that it was more about racism and discrimination being displayed in some West European countries than actual concern for the competition. [http://www.dn.se/DNet/jsp/polopoly.jsp?d=2198&a=649712] . The fact that the results would have remained more or less the same, with the same winner, even if only West European votes had been counted was also brought forward as evidence for the criticism being more about negative feelings towards East European countries rather than any actual bias in the competition. In Finland, the organising country, the bad reactions in some countries even became the topic of the leader page in papers,
Hufvudstadsbladetaccusing those who still divide Europe into a Western and an Eastern part for being stuck in history, and encouraging all Europeans not to let "envious bad losers destroy a nice and all-European spectacle". [http://www.hbl.fi/pagespeed/url/News] . The Swedish paper Expressenwrote about feeling "shame" over the reactions in many west European nations and claimed that the Eurovision Song Contest had never been better. Calling the Serbian winner a "worthy, historic winner", it went on to call the proposals for a separate contest "incredibly pathetic". [http://www.expressen.se/debatt/1.678336]
