Due to the cancellation of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest after the covid-19 crisis, some of the large Eurovision news websites have joined forces to organize the first edition of EuroStream.
Tonight at 21.00h CET will take place live the first semi-final of EuroStream 2020 in which, as in Eurovision, a professional jury and public voting will select the 10 participating countries that will get a place in the Grand Final this coming Saturday.
From now until the closing of voting at the end of today’s 17 performances, you can cast your votes at eurostream2020.com/vote. Anyone from anywhere in the world is invited to vote in a minimum of three and a maximum of five different countries. All the votes will be added and weighted to obtain half of the final result, together with the scores of the National Jury, which represent the other half. People who vote can share their votes on social networks with the hashtag #Eurostream2020.
Sweden will be the country in charge of opening this first semifinal while Ukraine will be in charge of closing the gala as determined in the draw held on April 21. The order of action of the first semifinal was determined as follows.
Lisa-Jayne Lewis will be in charge of hosting the show for the worldwide audience, while Gunther Ooms y Joël Braem will announce the results in random order. As in the first period of Eurovision Semi-Finals the running order for the final will be released at the same time as the results.
Remember to follow the show together with our handbook so you don’t miss any detail.
