How was the winner chosen?
Viewers from all the countries taking part in Eurovision 2016 were invited to vote via the official app, telephone and/or SMS. The voting window was be open after the last song had been performed, and ended around 15 minutes later. Televoters determined 50% of the outcome while professional juries did so with the other half of the voting combination according to the performances of yesterday’s Jury Semi-Final show.
The Grand Final of Eurovision 2016 was hosted by the last year’s Eurovision winner Måns Zelmerlöw and comedian Petra Mede. Today’s final featured for the first time the worldwide pop star Justin Timberlake performing as guest of the show. All viewers were also able to enjoy several comedy sketches about the history of Eurovision, including the appearance of the Swedish comedian and singer Linda Woodroof (Sarah Dawn Finer). The hosts of the show performed a parody song of past Eurovision stagings at the end of the show featuring Alexander Rybak (2009) and Mr Lordi (2006).
