About the Show

This year, the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest will have a grand Opening ceremony. Under the tagline “We Are One”, the show will be opened with a special appearance of all 26 contestants, qualified for the final and with flag bearers walking in front of them.
However, the show starts with opening clip about larva emerging from the ground, before transforming into a butterfly, making it’s way from Baku to Malmö. As soon as the film ends, this year’s Eurovision anthem composed by ABBA legends, Benny Anderson and Björn Ulvaeus, adopted by Avicii is going to be performed.

26 songs, only one winner!

Among 26 entries, just one country will be crowned as winner and claim the coveted Grand Prix trophy, designed by Kjell Engman, made of solid transparent glass with sand-blasted and painted detailing.
The result will be determined by way of a 50/50 split between national expert juries and televoting. The combined scores will create the final outcome. Countries will award their votes in scores from 1 to 7 and then 8, 10 and 12 points with only the latter three being read out by the spokesperson. All 39 participating countries will be able to vote.

15 minutes for voting

In yesterday's Jury Final, the expert juries already determined their votes by watching the live performances. These results have however not been revealed. The televoting will take place during the live show once the final performance has taken place.
The viewers of the 39 competing nations will have the opportunity to televote for their favourite song with the numbers being revealed by their respective national broadcaster during the live show. The lines will be open for just 15 minutes after the last song has been performed.
