How Was The Winner Chosen?
A combination of a two-round online audience vote decided 50% of the outcome, while the other half was determined by a professional jury panel in each country, made up of adults and kids. You can find more information about the online voting below:
- First phase: This phase was open for two days, since last Friday at 18:00 CET until the show started today, at 15:59 CET. Once inside the website, voters were required to watch a recap of the songs taking part before entering the voting platform. After watching the recap, they also had the option to watch one-minute clips of each participant’s rehearsal. People were able to vote for a minimum of three countries and a maximum of five, including their own country.
- Second phase: After the last performance of the live show, the online voting was open again for 15 min.
