The second round of the online voting for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2017 has been open for a few minutes. However, the website crashed and people haven’t been able to cast their votes after the performances.
How Will The Winner Be Chosen?
A combination of a two-round online audience vote 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. You can find more information about the online voting below:
- First phase (Open now): This phase has been open since last Friday at 18:00 CET and it will close today when the show starts, at 15:59 CET. Once inside the website, voters are required to watch a recap of the songs taking part before entering the voting platform. After watching the recap, they also have the option to watch one-minute clips of each participant’s rehearsal. People are 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 will be open again for 15 min.
16 countries are competing at this year’s Junior Eurovision Song Contest, that is held in Tbilisi, Georgia. Who will win? We will find it out very soon!
