The three live shows of ‘Eurostream 2020’ are scheduled for next week Tuesday 5 May, Thursday 7 May and Saturday 9 May. 35 countries will battle it out for 20 spots in the Grand Final on Saturday, where they will be joined by six pre-qualified countries. Professional juries (50%) and online televoting (50%) will decide the final outcome. The full list of jury members will be revealed on Monday 4 May.
Televoting for each live show will already open on the day of the broadcast at noon CET. This means that next week Tuesday 5 May, every Eurovision fan from around the world can start voting for Semi-Final 1 at 12:00 PM CET via the joint website, eurostream2020.com. The ‘voting lines’ will close after a recap of all entries has aired during the live shows. In Eurovision-style, they will all start at 21:00 CET sharp and can be watched from our Facebook and YouTube pages. All voters are required to vote for a minimum of three and a maximum of five different countries. All votes will be added together with the numbers weighed to count for half of the final result, next to the points of the national juries.
