How it will work:

The new online voting method will have two different rounds:

  • First phase (Open now): The audience will be able to vote from Friday 24, at 18:00 CET until Sunday 26 when the show starts, at 15.59 CET. They will be required to watch a recap of the songs taking part before entering the voting platform that will be available on the JESC official website. After watching the recap, voters will also have the option to watch one-minute clips of each participant’s rehearsal. People will be 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 voting will be open again for 15 min.

A combination of both rounds of voting will decide 50% of the final outcome, while the other half will be decided by a professional jury panel in each country made up of adults and kids.

About Belén García (Spain)

Belén García (Spain)

My name is Belén. I’m a musician and English teacher from Spain.

I have been following Eurovision since I was only 11 and the junior version since the beginning (expert of this contest). I love Eurovision because I love discovering new songs every year.

Before ESC+Plus, I have been part of very well-known websites about (Junior) Eurovision. Apart from writing, I love taking professional photos, designing and editing videos, I’m very creative!

I have already traveled to Eurovision and Junior Eurovision a few times and I highly recommend it! =)

  1. It’s weird that EBU thinks a one minute clip is the maximum to form an opinion about a whole song.
    It’s weird too that the more inhabitants a country has, the bigger the chances to win the online voting, because the audience can vote for their own entry. So, one thing’s for sure, Russia doesn’t end in the second half, and ends at least in the top3 in televoting.
