It is possible that a seventh finalist may be chosen as a wildcard, but this will be confirmed for definite after the second semi final has taken place.
During the final, a 50/50 televoting and jury vote will determine the two songs which progress to the super final. Then the vote to establish the winning song will be based upon 100% televoting.
