Participating tonight

The eighteen countries performing tonight, in running order, are: Norway, Romania, Serbia, San Marino, Denmark, Russia, Moldova, the Netherlands, Australia, Georgia, Poland, Malta, Hungary, Latvia, Sweden, Montenegro, Slovenia and Ukraine.
Just ten countries will be able to qualify for the Grand Final. Be sure to tune in again this Saturday at 21:00 CEST.

Where to watch

If you live in one of the 43 participating countries, you can watch the show on TV or online via your national public broadcaster. You can also watch the show (without commentary and voting details) via the official Eurovision YouTube channel.*
During the show, use #Eurovision and #AllAboard on your favourite social media channel. You can follow the official Eurovision channels on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat for loads of exclusive material from behind the scenes.
* Due to rights limitations, the YouTube live stream is not available in the United States, Canada, Bolivia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Uruguay and Venezuela. We apologise for the inconvenience.

How you can vote

Is your country taking part in the second Semi-Final tonight, or are you living in France, Germany or Italy? Then you will be able to vote for your favourites! After all songs have been performed, you can vote for ±15 minutes. Voting is possible via the official Eurovision app, and by telephone and SMS through the numbers shown on screen. Rates and legal terms will be shown on screen as well.
Through the official app, you will also receive a special thank-you message from the artists you voted for!
You can vote up to twenty times, but you cannot vote for the country you are voting from. Televotes make up 50% of the result; the other 50% of tonight's result was determined by a professional jury last night.
Watching the second Semi-Final at the Eurovision Village in Lisbon? Download the app and use the OSRAM light voting feature. Based on your vote, several landmark buildings in Lisbon will be lit in different colours.
